The Pac-12 is now in a place where they feel like they’re trying to keep pace with some of the other conferences in the country, and are in fact keeping up with other Power 5 conferences.

Overall, they’ve done a great job on the recruiting and transfer portal ranks to raise the league’s profile in college football.

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I’m joined by Locked On recruiting insider John Garcia Jr.

We examine the Conference’s recruiting landscape in the future and discuss who the top teams might be once USC and UCLA leave for the Big 10.

Finally, with the 2023 recruiting cycle essentially all wrapped up, we each give the team they feel most overperformed (and underperformed) expectations this cycle.

Did Deion Sanders go that far above and beyond what was expected at Colorado pulling in a Top 25 class?
