Regarding your question on Phillips - academic and personal reasons caused the Gophers to rescind their scholarship offer.
Big Ten Recruiting Class Rankings 4-11
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 (aside from Scout releasing a new Top 300 list):
4-5-10 Indiana gains commitment from Jake Reed.
4-10-10 Indiana gains commitment from Tre Roberson.
4-11-10 Michigan State gains commitment from Connor Cook.
|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 - 8 Commits|
Several future Buckeyes get lofty rating from Scout.
|#2 Michigan State - 4 Commits|
Spartans pick up Connor Cook from Ohio.
|#3 Michigan - 3 Commits|
Brown and Conway pick up 3-star ratings.
|#4 Notre Dame - 2 Commits|
Jordan Prestwood joins the fold for Notre Dame.
|#5 Minnesota - 2 Commits|
Still just two for the Gophers, who dropped Calvin Phillips a couple weeks back.
|#6 Indiana - 4 Commits|
The Hoosiers pick up a couple pieces, including a good TE in Jake Reed.
|#7 Wisconsin - 1 Commit|
Just one for Wisconsin.
|#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.
Tim this was sooooooooooo.... shocking, so did Scout just pull the old, he committed to OSU he has to be a borderline 4star or did OSU pull the old Michigan and get in on the Ohio sleepers early??
These guys weren't really sleepers, as they were expected to be highy-ranked when they rankings came out.
Scout is doing themselves a disservice trying to release rankings so early, ime.
Scout is the one service I would never go on but by releasing their star rankings out this early I will go on to read their rankings(albiet they are largely wrong)
I find it interesting on Rival's they really aren't that high on many of them but they are rated so highly on Scout.
I don't believe Rivals has done any update to their list
Delonte Hollowell may be just a three star, but he was named to the All-American game already.
