Wonder how the Torch & Pitchfork business is going in Columbus? Probably nothing like around here about 10 months ago.
Big Ten Recruiting Class Rankings 3-21
There have been a lot of requests for this to become a recurring feature (as it was on Varsity Blue), so I'll post the rankings weekly in the diaries, and frontpage it occasionally. The team rankings are very rough estimates until the services have released more full individual grades.
Action since last rankings:
3-12-10 Indiana gains commitment from Mike Replogle.
3-15-10 Ohio State gains commitment from Antonio Underwood.
3-16-10 Ohio State gains commitments from Brian Bobek, Chase Farris, and DerJuan Gambrell.
3-20-10 Notre Dame gains commitment from Brad Carrico
|Big Ten Recruiting Class Rankings|
|Rank||School||# of Commits||Rivals 250||Scout Average||ESPN 150|
I'll only make charts for the teams that currently have commits. Rivals 250 means that a given prospect is on the Rivals 250 to Watch, and ESPN 150 means that a prospect is on the Watch List for the ESPNU 150. Scout ratings are on the 5-star scale.
|#1 Ohio State - 7 Commits|
A huge week for the Buckeyes sees them get several commitments.
|#2 Minnesota - 3 Commits|
No change for the Gophers.
|#3 Michigan - 3 Commits|
Wolverine fans are itching for another commit, but it doesn't seem like Brennen Beyer and/or Anthony Zettel is close to picking the Wolverines anymore.
|#4 Michigan State - 2 Commits|
Two instaters for the Spartans.
|#5 Notre Dame - 1 Commit|
The Irish pick up longtime lean Brad Carrico at their Junior Day.
|#6 Illinois - 1 Commit|
Zook has got to be recruiting for his life this year.
|#6 Indiana - 1 Commit|
The Hoosiers get the younger brother of Adam and Tyler Replogle.
|#5 Northwestern - 1 Commit|
Northwestern holds steady with one prospect.
Looking at the offer lists of the unrated players, if you take out Farris who has a nice offer list, its just about all MAC offers. It does feel a bit "off" from previous years
I think Bobek and Carter will end up with decent ratings. I haven't heard enough about the other guys to get a good feel for where they'll end up.
but I had no idea we were going to go up to 21 teams!!! Is ND still holding out for the 22nd spot?... ;-)
I am guessing there is a joke it there because of the smiley but it totally flew over my head
Look at the title of this post...
Big Ten Recruiting Class Rankings 3-21...
(as if we were looking at teams number 3 through team number 21...)
Get it? That would make it appear as if the Big Ten is expanding past the speculated 12...
(Irish fans... sheesh!)
Surprised they have just gotten MAC level prospects lately.
