11-28-11: David Cooper decommits from Indiana.
12-6-11: Dante Blackmon decommits from Indiana. Northwestern picks up Andrew Scanlan.

|Big Ten+ Recruiting Class Rankings|
|Rank||School||# Commits||Rivals Avg||Scout Avg||ESPN Avg||24/7 Avg||Avg Avg^|
*ESPN doesn't rate JuCos, so they are counted as unranked recruits for the sake of consistency (trust me, it makes sense when you look at the spreadsheet).
^The average of the average rankings of the four recruiting services (aka 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.
On to the full data, after the jump.
Jake Long just had to walk to the locker room in his game vs. the Eagles.
I hope it is minor and I will update when more is known.
Hey guys, just wanted to post this again today in case you haven't joined yet:
EDIT: We're up to 96 people! Keep it going!
No surprise that RR is going after Fuller. He desperately needs a QB after two departures from UA.
I actually thought the best part of this article was the picture in the upper right corner of RR in a Sombrero. Do you think growing up in WV he ever pictured himself like this...quite the dichotomy. This should go in the MGO photo library.
Quick OT factoid. NFL Network Red Zone host - Scott Hanson - is a Syracuse grad, but a huge UM fan. He never gets to see UM live since he always works during the season, but he's bought 50 yard line tix behind our bench for the Sugar Bowl and texted me today of how excited he is to finally get to watch UM live again after over 4 years, and see us win our second BCS game.
Jake Ryan made Rivals' Second Team Freshman All American.
Ibraheim Campbell (NW) was First Team Safety and Ameer Abdullah (NE) was First Team PR. Marcus Rush (MSU) and Bradley Roby (OSU) were also Second Team .
