With National Signing Day next Wednesday, I thought it would be fun to look at what recruits that I would love to steal from each of the other Big 12 teams. Obviously this is hypothetical, but here goes nothing.
1. Texas- Linebacker Malik Jefferson 6'2" 220lbs.
He is the obvious answer. Not only does he solve a number of issues at linebacker recruiting, but he is a star. Malik is a consensus 5 star recruit and should sadly develop into a star for the Longhorns. Here is a highlight video of Malik in action.

2, Baylor- Quarterback Jarrett Stidham 6'2" 190lbs.
While a little slight in stature, Stidham is one of the top quarterbacks in the class of 2015. He also had a Sooner offer well before he ended up with Baylor. Here is a short clip of Stidham in action.

He is a devasting hitter who could thrive at MLB in college. He also was an early Sooner offer.
4. OSU- LB Louis Brown 6'5" 215lbs.
Louis Brown was formerly committed to Texas, but now finds himself a member of Oklahoma State's class. He has all the potential in the world as an OLB in college. He is a huge boom or bust prospect.
5. TTech- DL Breiden Fehoko 6'3" 290lbs.
Breiden is the type of defensive line recruit that Tech usually misses on. The Hawaii native had offers from across the country. He has lots of family connections to Tech which ultimately led to him being an early enrollee for the Red Raiders.

6. Kansas- Jace Sternberger 6'4" 225lbs.
Jace has all the potential in the world to star at OLB in the 3-4. The Kingfisher, OK product would be a great fit for the Sooners defense in my opinion.
7. Kansas State- DB Darreyl Patterson 6'0" 165lbs.
Darreyl was offered by the Sooners, but had an interesting end to his commitment which ended in him being committed to the Wildcats. Not sure what all took place, but the Lawton, OK native can certainly play.
8. Iowa State-
Sorry but I'm not sure that I would take a commitment from the Cyclones. I apologize to the people in Ames, IA.
9. WVU- WR Jovan Durante 6'1" 180lbs
His is name is really close to Kevin Durant and he looks like a really good Wide Receiver.
That would mean that OU would add 4 linebackers, 1 Quarterback, 1 DLineman, 1 Defensive Back, and 1 WR to the class of 2015.
While not realistic adding these 8 players would equal the type of class that Alabama pulls in every year.
