I love the Brewster is losing commits again. Does he just refuse to stop calling until they say yes--and then they decommit once they change their phone numbers? Is there a survivors group on Facebook?
Big Ten Recruiting Class Rankings 3-28
I'll post the rankings weekly in the diaries, and frontpage it occasionally (i.e. when Michigan gets commitments). The team rankings are very rough estimates until the services have released more full individual grades.
Action since last rankings:
3-21-10 Indiana gains commitment from Kirk Harris.
4-3-10 Ohio State gains commitment from Tommy Brown.
|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|
The Buckeyes grab in-state offensive lineman Tommy Brown, already their 4th OL in the class.
|#2 Michigan State - 3 Commits|
Spartans get the advantage over Michigan because of Thomas's ratings.
|#3 Michigan - 3 Commits|
Wolverines haven't had any new commits since Conway.
|#4 Minnesota - 2 Commits|
Still just two for the Gophers, who dropped Calvin Phillips last week.
|#5 Indiana - 2 Commits|
Indiana has had a commitment from Kirk Harris for a while, but the recruiting sites just picked up on it. Don't expect the Hoosiers to be in the top half of the conference for long.
|#6 Wisconsin - 1 Commit|
Instate linebacker Jake Keefer picks the Badgers.
|#7 Notre Dame - 1 Commit|
Carrico is the only commit for the Irish. They might have another coming very soon.
|#8 Illinois - 1 Commit|
Zook has got to be recruiting for his life this year.
|#8 Northwestern - 1 Commit|
Northwestern holds steady with one prospect.
I probably should have extended the hockey chant and called Brewster "sieve sieve sieve."
or is this typical GO FIGHT DECOMMIT...
What in the world does their coaching staff do. It's like after kids commit they just completely stop talking to them or something.
Actually, Minnesota pulled their offer to Phillips. He has quite a few academic and, uh, non-academic issues, and Minnesota has decided he's not worth the aggravation.
I likes me some recruiting news...
I think the rankings might need an adjustment - it looks like there are twelve teams duking it out for eleven spots.
I think the three-way tie for 7th place threw off the numbers a bit; Iowa should be in 10th.
Ah, nice find. Fixed.
of giving underwood a 46 rather than a 45 on espn. i have never seen the point of espn doing that. i would prefer 1/2 of the 46 guys to go back to 45 and the other 1/2 to get a ranking that is relatively close to where they will be ranked come fall.
