Interactive Map of all FBS Recruits from 2002-2014

The guys over at Corn Nation, the Nebraska blog for SB-Nation, made a map showing where every single FBS recruit from 2002-2014 has come from.

Here's a still of it:

The interactive version is here. It's pretty fun to play around with. You can see, during coaching changes, where each coach emphasized.

If you want, they also made a 2014 Big Ten version

I believe the 2014 version was on the board yesterday, but not the other one. In any case, it is interesting to see the clusters that each team's recruits fall into geographically. Michigan, for example, recruited largely from the southern Great Lakes, from Chicago through Cleveland and Columbus and all the way into Pennsylvania, with small clusters in southern California, south and central Florida and the east coast from DC to almost Boston. I know we've had diaries about this very phenomenon here before, but this is a neat depiction of it.
