RAHMEL DOCKERY

WITH SIGNING DAY over, we look into the Crystal Ball and see what we expect to see in December: the Pac-12 All-Freshman Team. This isn't necessarily based on the highest-rated recruits, but the players we think have the best chance to come in and contribute as freshmen, either because of talent, team needs or a combination.

In some cases, an elite 5-star guy may have to come in and redshirt (like Lache Seastrunk did at Oregon or Kyle Prater at USC because of logjams at their position), while a 3-star guy comes in and plays a significant role because of team needs (see Marquess Wilson at Washington State).

So this is who we think will come in and make early, and impactful, contributions in 2011.
