Obviously, every recruit dreams of getting to the NFL.
While decisions on where to attend school are based on many things, a school's (and coaching staff's) track record of putting guys in the League typically is a major consideration.
I thought it would be interesting to take a quick look at current guys in the NFL from each school in the Big Ten East...
Ohio State - 40
Penn State - 33
Michigan - 31
Michigan State - 19
Rutgers - 15
Maryland - 13
Indiana - 10
I realize this is somewhat coarse and doesn't take into account specific position groups, recent vs. older players, round chosen, etc. It does give a snapshot of how good the programs are overall in helping recruits reach their goals.
Want to get to the top of the pyramid? Keep rooting for our guys to make NFL rosters, even if that means leaving early.
In case anyone is wondering in light of recent developments, Alabama has 51 guys in the NFL!
