National rankings (Rivals 55; Scout 62).
Best in class: Traevohn Wrench, rb, Gardner, Kan.
Best of the rest: Jacob Bragg, ol, Nacogdoches, Texas; Kyron Watson, lb, East St. Louis, Ill.; D.J. Williams, dl, Lufkin, Texas; Derrick Neal, wr, Dallas.
Late addition: Corey Avery, rb, Dallas, who picked Kansas this past week after visiting Nebraska and considering Ohio State, LSU and Texas.
One that got away: Austin Stevens, dl, Montclair, N.J., committed to Kansas in September and switched his pledge to Boston College in December.
NOTE: Kansas invested heavily in football hotbeds Texas (11 players) and Florida (four), while picking up three in-state recruits. But as evidence of the lengths Weis was going to secure talent, he also lured prospects from six other states and Canada.
National rankings (Rivals 46; Scout 57)
Best in class: D'Vonta Derricott, lb, Henrico, Va.
Best of the rest: Terrell Clinkscales, dt, Maywood, Ill.; Dalvin Warmack, rb, Blue Springs, Mo.; Dalton Risner, ol, Wiggins, Colo.; Elijah Lee, lb, Blue Springs, Mo.
Late addition: Isaiah Riddle, lb, Newnan, Ga., picked the Wildcats on signing day over Memphis and Louisville despite never visiting the school.
One that got away: Aaron Sharp, qb, Humble, Texas, who committed to Kansas State last July but switched to UCLA in January.
NOTE: The Wildcats hope Derricott and Clinkscales fill two of the biggest holes. Derricott was courted by nearly every Big 12 school while Clinkscales switched his commitment from Nebraska.
National rankings (Rivals 51; Scout 38).
Best in class: Shaun Nixon, rb, Lake Travis, Austin, Texas.
Best of the rest: Ty Barrett, ol, Dallas Skyline; qbs Foster Sawyer, Fort Worth, and Grayson Muehlstein, Decatur; wrs Corey McBride, Geismar, La., and Emanuel Porter, Dallas Lincoln.
Late addition: Nixon, a four-star recruit, had committed to Texas A&M before his surprise visit to TCU last weekend. Patterson called him a "guy who stood out who wanted to come to TCU. I don't think you ever turn down a great tailback."
One that got away: DE Jarrell Owens, who was also a running back at Palestine High, committed to the Frogs last summer. But the 6-3, 240-pounder switched to Oklahoma State after a visit to Stillwater last weekend and signed with the Cowboys on Wednesday.
NOTE: Ty Summers was a dual-threat All-District quarterback with 3,774 total yards and 47 touchdowns at San Antonio's Reagan High. Patterson recruited him to play linebacker, like he has done with other former high school QBs, including Jason Phillips, who is an NFL linebacker for Philadelphia. "A little bit going back to my old ways," Patterson said. "He ran with the ball more than he threw it. He's a very physical player."
