Little of note in this week's rankings, though once again Penn State loses a commitment, this time to Notre Dame. As a result, PSU continues to drop down the board. Changes since the last rankings:
8-1-12: Purdue picks up Austin Logan.
8-3-12: Illinois picks up Darwyn Kelly.
8-4-12: Northwestern picks up Keith Watkins.
8-5-12: William Fuller decommits from Penn State. Notre Dame picks up William Fuller.

^The average of the average rankings of the four recruiting services (the previous four columns). The figure is calculated based on the raw numbers and then rounded, so the numbers above may not average out exactly.
NOTE: Unranked recruits are counted as two-star players.
To eliminate any confusion about how the rankings are determined (to be honest, they used to be arbitrary), team order is determined by multiplying the number of commits by star average.
On to the full data after the jump.
I think players usually check into the hotel on the first Sunday in August and start practice on Monday. Does anyone know for sure the schedule this year? I guess I'm a little concerned that they may become SEALs instead of playing football this year.
EDIT: Nevermind. Freshmen reported yesterday, everybody else today, practice tomorrow:
Hello all you MGoblogers,
I have not recieved my signed issue of "Hail to the Victors" and was curious about the status of your orders. I live in Chicago, and thought that might attribute to the delay in recieiving the magazine. I was hoping to have it in time to take it to the fan day next weekend. Any feedback you can offer would be helpful.
As promised, here are the two wallpaper concepts for 'Bama week. Thanks to everyone who gave such positive reviews of the first wallpaper of the two that I posted last week. Now, I've included a new one so that, along with others available, you can have a rotating wallpaper until we've taken down the Crimson Tide in Arlington. Hope you like them. Go Blue, beat 'Bama!
Here's the wallpaper from last week:
Here's the new wallpaper, featuring a "what if" meeting of Bo and Bear Bryant.
For those of us who can never watch this game enough. A Saturday dose of ND schadenfreude is on ESPNU now.
