Each PAC-12 program's highest-ranked recruit of 2023

By

The top college football players in the country are often found in the South or in Midwest, but there are exceptions to the rule.

When it comes to the recruiting class of 2023, the PAC-12 conference is lagging behind their competition in the SEC and the Big Ten. However, they do have one distinct advantage in this race. Several of the top quarterback recruits in this class have committed to playing on the west coast.

Here are the top-ranked recruits in 2023 for each program in the PAC-12.
