Cue up the Gundy mullet wave, because OSU is making a charge up the recruiting rankings.

The Cowboys landed two commitments (one from tight end Quinton Stewart, another from cornerback Jordan Reagan) on Wednesday after a bustling weekend of visitors on campus for officials and unofficials, which shot them up into the top 25 of the recruiting rankings for the first time this cycle. Here’s a look at where things currently stand in the national and conference rankings:

Rank Team Points
1 Clemson 297.93
2 Alabama 287.87
3 LSU 283.14
4 Georgia 237.67
5 Notre Dame 231.43
6 Miami 223.10
7 Ohio State 221.23
8 North Carolina 208.23
9 Florida 208.09
10 South Carolina 206.80
11 Florida State 202.50
12 Oklahoma 200.84
13 Texas A&M 198.10
14 Oregon 197.10
15 Mississippi State 192.08
16 Ole Miss 187.13
17 Auburn 186.62
18 Ga. Tech 184.00
19 NC State 182.77
20 Iowa 178.09
21 Louisville 174.53
22 Northwestern 168.66
23 Michigan 167.97
24 Minnesota 164.68
25 Oklahoma State 159.44

Did you peep that? That’s OSU and OU standing alone as the only Big 12 teams ranked inside the top 25 of the recruiting rankings. Here’s how the conference looks:


And now, the massive caveat: This likely won’t end the way it currently stands.

Here’s why: OSU, with 12 commitments, and K-State, with 13 commitments, are currently relying on volume to be inside the rankings. When it’s all said and done at the end of the cycle, assuming each program takes roughly the same amount of commitments, ranking is going to be determined on a per-commitment ranking average.

If you sort it by that field, here’s how the rankings currently stand:

Rank Team Avg.
1 Texas 93.52
2 OU 91.53
3 TCU 87.98
4 West Virginia 86.47
5 OSU 86.31
6 Iowa State 85.02
7 Baylor 84.96
8 K-State 84.58
9 Texas Tech 84.35
10 Kansas 83.70

OSU finished No. 5 in the conference the last two recruiting cycles which ranked No. 39 nationally and No. 34 nationally, respectively, and with a near-identical per-player average, expect that to fall right around the same spot by the time ink dries in December.
