Lots of stuff has happened since the previous edition of the recruiting class rankings, so here’s round 2. From now forward, I expect to publish these on a weekly basis. Rivals has released their initial Rivals250, and I believe the Scout 300 either has or will soon be released.
3-8-09 Minnesota gains commitment from Lamonte Edwards.
3-14-09 Michigan gains commitment from DJ Williamson. Michigan gains commitment from Antonio Kinard.
|#1 Ohio State – 4 commits|
No more commits for OSU. Rivals isn’t quite as high on Norwell or Turner as Scout, and neither site has evaluated Durham yet.
|#2 Notre Dame – 3 commits|
Martin is the highest-ranked guy in the class. Surprisingly, Lombard isn’t in the Rivals 250.
|#3 Michigan – 3 commits|
Still not a ton of ranked guys for Michigan, though Miller is expected to end up close to a 5-star. Michigan also has an unofficial commitment from QB Devin Gardner, a 4-star to both sites. The Wolverines obviously have a lot of potential to pass the Irish, depending on where their current commits are evaluated.
|#4 Penn State – 2 commits|
No change for PSU. Consensus on the rankings of their two commits.
|#5 Minnesota – 3 commits|
Edwards could be a wideout or a linebacker (maybe even a big safety) at the next level.
|#6 Michigan State – 1 commit|
As expected, Bullough is in the 4-star range.
|#7 Illinois – 1 commit|
A single in-state commit.
|#8 Iowa – 1 commit|
I estimate that He’ll be lower-rated than Illinois’s lone commit, but that’s just a wild-ass guess from me.
Indiana, Northwestern, Purdue, Wisconsin – 0 commits.
