Pac-12 Recruiting: Oregon Rolls, Utah Thrives, Other Fearless Forecasts for 2023-24

Recommended Posts

The Hotline asked Brandon Huffman, the Washington-based national recruiting editor for 247Sports, to offer a few projections for the Pac-12 with the high school juniors who will sign letters of intent in the winter of 2023-24.


  1. -- Will the intra-conference dynamics change with USC and UCLA bound for the Big Ten?
  2. -- Will resurgent Washington challenge Oregon for Pac-12 supremacy?
  3. -- How will the Deion Sanders era at Colorado change the balance of power?


Read what Huffman has to say below:

2. USC flourishes


"That said, I think USC's class will be rated higher than Oregon's. But because the Trojans will be headed to the Big Ten in the summer of '24, they won't have the highest-ranked class in the Pac-12. Instead, it will be absorbed by the Big Ten."


Why? Because they are USC. So far Oregon has matched every recruiting move USC has made and at times exceeded theirs (e.g., nine 4/5* DL/End high school recruits vs one for USC). One nice thing about USC moving out is not having to listen to the media’s blind adoration of USC nearly as much.

That is a poorly written "blah-blah" article that tells us nothing beyond the obvious.  And he confuses us--is he referring at times to the '23 class or the '24 class?


Regardless...USC has to win one of them?

I find 247sports recruiting rankings to be geared mainly to selling subscriptions, not objectively rating prospects.
