Signing day is coming up fast. Here's a look at where each Pac-12 team stands.

ARIZONA

2013 verbal commitments: 26
Spotlight: Four-star running back Pierre Cormier (Madison, San Diego) took an official visit to Washington during the season, but has kept his commitment to the Wildcats. He's considered a quick and elusive multi-purpose back.
ESPN 150 members: 0
ESPN 300 members: 1 (Samajie Grant, athlete, Ontario, Calif.)

ARIZONA STATE

2013 verbal commitments: 24
Spotlight: Since our last roundup, ASU has gotten commitments from four more players, including a pair of four-star, JC wide receivers. Jaelen Strong (Philadelphia) and Joe Morris (Woodland Hills, Calif.), are both 6-foot-3. New toys for Taylor Kelly!
ESPN 150 members: 0
ESPN 300 members: 1 (Joshua Dobbs, QB, Alpharetta, Ga.)

CALIFORNIA

2013 verbal commitments: 22
Spotlight: So much for ESPN 300 receiver Dannon Cavil -- who flipped for the third time, dropping Ole Miss for Cal and now Cal for Oklahoma. But four-star tackle Erik Bunte (Fountain Valley, Calif.) should pair nicely with ESPN 300 guard Cameron Hunt (Corona, Calif.)
ESPN 150 members: 0
ESPN 300 members: 2 (Jared Goff, QB, Kentfield, Calif.; Cameron Hunt, OT, Corona, Calif.)

COLORADO

2013 verbal commitments: 13
Spotlight: New head coach Mike MacIntyre picked up his first commitment recently when he landed 6-4, 225-pound defensive end Markeis Reed (Napa, Calif.). He was Colorado's first commit since Nov. 12. He's versatile enough to play linebacker also, which gives the new staff some flexibility deciding where he'll fit into the scheme.

OREGON

2013 verbal commitments: 13
Spotlight: No movement from the Ducks since our last recruiting roundup on Dec. 26. Given yesterday's stunning turn of events it warrants watching closely to see if anyone jumps ship. Nice report here from Brandon P. Oliver getting an immediate reaction from some of the commits.
ESPN 150 members: 2 (Dontre Wilson, athlete, DeSoto, Texas; Thomas Tyner, RB, Aloha, Ore.)
ESPN 300 members: 4 (Evan Voeller, OT, West Linn, Ore.; Tyree Robinson, WR, San Diego)

OREGON STATE

2013 verbal commitments: 21
Spotlight: The Beavers picked up six commits in the last couple of weeks -- including four-star and ESPN300 cornerback Dashon Hunt. Though he's only 5-9, he's a big-play threat despite his size. He's projected as a defensive back at the next level, though he has the skill set to contribute to the offense and on special teams.
ESPN 150 members: 0
ESPN 300 members: 1 (Dashon Hunt, CB, Westlake, Calif.)

STANFORD

2013 verbal commitments: 12
Spotlight: Stanford continues to work on their offensive and defensive lines, adding three-star offensive tackle Thomas Oser (North Hollywood, Calif.) and four-star and ESPN 300 defensive end Austin Hooper from De La Salle High School in Concord, Calif. Hooper is the No. 20 DE nationally.
ESPN 150 members: 1 (Ryan Burns, QB, Ashburn Va.)
ESPN 300 members: 5 (Greg Taboada, Ath., Atlanta; Francis Owusu, WR, Westlake Village, Calif.; Austin Hooper, DE, Concord, Calif.; Peter Kalambayi, OLB, Matthews, N.C.)

UCLA

2013 verbal commitments: 20
Spotlight: Since the last roundup, the Bruins have added sought-after tight end Thomas Duarte, a 6-3, 223-pounder who should fit in nicely to UCLA's spread scheme. He had offers from seven other Pac-12 schools -- including Oregon -- and also an offer from Notre Dame.
ESPN 150 members: 1 (Deon Hollins Jr., OLB, Missouri City, Texas)
ESPN 300 members: 4 (Eldridge Massington, WR, Mesquite, Texas; Scott Quessenberry, OL, Carlsbad, Ca.; John Lopez, OG, Orange, Calif.)

USC

2013 verbal commitments: 14
Spotlight: The bad news is the Trojans keep hemorrhaging commits. The good news is that the current 14 are all either ESPN 150 or ESPN 300 prospects, so the projected quality is still there. And even as others go, they still picked up four-star safety Leon McQuay III a couple of weeks ago. He's the No. 3 projected safety in the country.
ESPN 150 members: 9 (Su'a Cravens, S, Murrieta, Calif.; Jalen Ramsey, CB, Brentwood, Tenn.; Max Browne, QB, Sammamish, Wash.; Kenny Bigelow, DT, Elkton, MD.; Leon McQuay III, S, Seffner, Fla.; Michael Hutchings, OLB, Concord, Calif.; Chris Hawkins, CB, Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.; Steven Mitchell, WR, Mission Hills, Calif.; Ty Isaac, athlete. Joliet, Ill.;
ESPN 300 members: 14; Jason Hatcher, DE, Louisville, Ky.; Justin Davis, RB, Stockton, Calif.; Nico Falah, OT, Bellflower, Calif.; Torrodney Prevot, DE, Houston; Khaliel Rodgers, OG, Elkton MD.)

UTAH

2013 verbal commitments: 27
Spotlight: Since the last update, the Utes have picked up a pair of cornerbacks -- including three-star Hipolito Corporan (Houston) -- a 6-1, 190-pound big-bodied defensive back who is the No. 43 prospect in the country. Here's the scouting report on Corporan.

WASHINGTON

2013 verbal commitments: 21
Spotlight: Washington's nice recruiting class got a little nicer with the addition of four-star defensive end Joe Mathis (Upland, Calif.), the No. 21 defensive end in the land. Watching his highlight reel, he looks awfully disruptive.
ESPN 150 members: 3 (Damore'ea Stringfellow, WR, Morena Valley, Calif.; Elijah Qualls, DT, Petaluma, Calif.; Darrell Daniels, WR, Oakley, Calif.)
ESPN 300 members: 5 (Troy Williams, QB, Harbor City, Calif.; Joe Mathis, DE, Upland, Calif.).

WASHINGTON STATE

2013 verbal commitments: 25
Spotlight: An intriguing commit for Mike Leach and Co. with Isaac Dotson (Newport, Wash.) flipping his commitment from Nevada to Washington State. He's a dual-threat quarterback, but with the coaching changes at Nevada, he's willing to explore other positions. Look for him to compete at quarterback and if it's not there, make a move as either a receiver or to the secondary.
