Pac 12 Football Recruiting: 11 Best Prospects Committed For 2016 (And 3 Stars Who Might Commit Tomorrow)

National Signing Day is less than 24 hours away, which means Pac-12 football programs are furiously trying to piece together their final pitches in hopes of bolstering their 2016 recruiting classes with top uncommitted recruits. We're here to look at who's already the cream of the crop in the conference and who could be coming to the Pac-12 on Wednesday with our Pac 12 Football Recruiting: 11 Best Prospects Committed For 2016 (And 3 Stars Who Might Commit Tomorrow).

The Top 11 Commits Right Now

11. Lokeni Toailoa, ILB, UCLA
The four-star LB is one of five defensive players on this list, and one of two UCLA linebackers. He's the #131 overall player in the Class of 2016.

10. Breland Brandt, LB, UCLA
Brandt is the #125 overall player and is an early enrollee -- the same as the aforementioned Toailoa. He's an outside linebacker that could thrive as a pass rusher. 

9. Theo Howard, WR, UCLA
The third-straight UCLA player on this list and third- straight early enrollee, UCLA might have found his top weapon in Howard to pair with young star QB Josh Rosen. He's a four-star recruit and the #102 overall player in the nation.

8. Byron Murphy, CB, Washington
The #11 cornerback and #97 overall player in the Class of 2016, Murphy shocked the recruiting world by picking Washington over the likes of Arizona State and USC.

7. Curtis Robinson, LB, Stanford
Robinson dropped from five stars to four stars over the past month or so, currently checking in at #70 overall. He's an OLB and the #11 player from California. He was a huge get for Stanford. More Pac-12 recruiting news and rumors inside the Chat Sports Android and iPhone apps!

6. Michael Pittman, WR, USC
Pittman is the first of two four-star WRs for USC in the top 10. He's the #8 WR and the #69 overall player, and he's also an early enrollee.

5. N'Keal Harry, WR, Arizona State​
Harry is the top player from Arizona, the #7 WR in the class and the #52 overall player. He's had a chance to be the first five-star recruit for ASU since the school landed Vontaze Burfict in 2009, but he fell to four stars recently.

4. K.J. Costello, QB, Stanford
Costello isn't the No. 1 recruit for Stanford, but he is the most important. Stanford hopes Costello will be the team's future at quarterback, and he's got the skill set to do just that. He's the #3 Pro-Style QB in the 2016 class and #46 overall player. 

3. Kaden Smith, TE, Stanford
Stanford hopes "Costello to Smith" is a common phrase in the next few years. The four-star recruit from Texas is the #5 player from the state. He's also the #2 TE and and the 37th best player in this class. 

2. Tyler Vaughns, WR, USC
Vaughns and Pittman could be a once-in-a-generation USC WR combo. Vaughns is a four-star recruit and the #3 WR in the class. He's the sixth-best player from California and the #34 overall recruit in the nation. 

1. Oluwole Betiku, WDE, USC
An early enrollee and one of the highest-upside pass rushers in all of the Class of 2016, Betiku is the only top-20 overall prospect (#16) currently committed to a Pac-12 program.

3. LB Caleb Kelly
The Oregon Ducks have an outside chance at inking the #25 overall player in the class and #3 OLB. Oklahoma is the clear leader for Kelly right now, with Michigan and Notre Dame also in the running. Stay up to date with the latest Signing Day news and rumors inside our Chat Sports iPhone and Android apps!

2. CB Jack Jones
Jones is going to USC, barring a miracle recruiting comeback by either Alabama or Texas A&M. Jones is the #3 overall cornerback in the class and the #22 overall player.

1. WR Demetris Robertson
Robertson is the #1 wide receiver in the class right now and has been furiously trying to get his test scores together to be accepted to Stanford, regardless of whether or not he actually wants to go there. He's not expected to commit on Signing Day, and the Cardinal have major competition in Notre Dame, Georgia and Alabama.
