Big Ten 2009 Recruiting Class Rankings 5-10-08

I’ve come to realize that the commitment pages aren’t always updated by the end of the week, so if you’re a fan of a school that doesn’t get much notice, drop any commitments your team might get in the comments.

Action since last rankings:
By request, Notre Dame added.
5-3-08 Iowa gains commitment from David Barrent.
5-4-08 Minnesota gains commitment from Hasan Lipscomb.

New Rankings:

#1 Ohio State – 13 commits
DT ***** Johnny Simon
LB ***** Dorian Bell
RB **** Jordan Hall
CB **** Darrell Givens
CB **** CJ Barnett
MLB **** Storm Klein
MLB **** Jordan Whiting
DE **** Melvin Fellows
OG **** Corey Linsley
OT **** Jack Mewhort
S **** Jamie Wood
LB **** Zach Boren
WR *** Chris Fields
FB *** Adam Homan

With only 6(ish) scholarships left, this will be a quality-over-quantity class for the Bucks.

#2 Michigan – 7 commits
DT ***** William Campbell
QB ***** Kevin Newsome
CB **** Justin Turner
QB **** Shavodrick Beaver
RB **** Teric Jones
RB *** Fitzgerald Toussaint
S * Isaiah Bell

Bell will likely end up a high 3-star.

#3 Michigan State – 6 commits
RB **** Edwin Baker
RB **** Larry Caper
SLB **** Chris Norman
WR *** Donald Spencer
DT *** Blake Treadwell
QB *** Andrew Maxwell

Every player committed to State thus far is from Michigan.

#4 Notre Dame – 4 commits
RB ***** Cierre Wood
RB **** Theo Riddick
DT **** Tyler Stockton
TE *** Jake Golic

Wood is a very good prospect, but all are slightly overrated because of their school of choice (especially Golic).

#5 Minnesota – 5 commits
QB **** Moses Alipate
RB *** Hasan Lipscomb
C *** Ed Olsen
OT *** Josh Campion
WR * Victor Keise

Lipscomb is a speedy little bastard from Russell Shepard’s high school, and I think he is likely a little underrated. Keise will probably end up a mid 3-star.

#6 Illinois – 2 commits
DT **** Lendell Buckner
OT **** Leon Hill

Illinois started fast, but has since stagnated (and lost Melvin Fellows to the Bucks).

#7 Penn State – 3 commits
S *** Malcolm Willis
OT *** Mark Arcidiacono
C * Ty Howle

Arcidiacono actually had some pretty good offers, albeit from schools that offer anyone with a pulse (Notre Dame and Florida). I think he is a little underrated. Howle will end up a high 3-star.

#8 Wisconsin – 3 commits
DT **** Jared Kohout
OG *** Ryan Groy
DE *** Shelby Harris

Wisconsin has all linemen, all from America’s Dairyland.

#9 Iowa – 2 commits
OT **** David Barrent
FB * Brad Rogers

Their only commit comes from one of the least important positions on the field. Huzzah!

#10 Northwestern – 2 commits
QB *** Evan Watkins
RB * Mike Trumpy

At least they have some commits. Come on, state of Indiana.

T-11th – Indiana, Purdue (0 commits)

    You can remove Givens from tOeSUckers and put him in the PSU column. He did the decommit dance this weekend. I wasn’t able to get Pryor to fork over some of the money I gave him to give to Givens.
