Big Ten 2010 Recruiting Class Rankings 3-22-09

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
Name Pos Rivals Scout ESPN
Andrew Norwell OL **** ***** NR
Jamel Turner DE **** ***** NR
JT Moore DE **** NR NR
David Durham LB NR NR NR

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
Name Pos Rivals Scout ESPN
Chris Martin DE ***** ***** NR
Christian Lombard OL NR ***** NR
Daniel Smith WR NR **** NR

Martin is the highest-ranked guy in the class. Surprisingly, Lombard isn’t in the Rivals 250.

#3 Michigan – 3 commits
Name Pos Rivals Scout ESPN
Ricardo Miller WR **** **** NR
Jerald Robinson WR **** NR NR
Jeremy Jackson WR NR NR NR
DJ Williamson WR NR NR NR
Antonio Kinard LB NR NR NR

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
Name Pos Rivals Scout ESPN
Mike Hull LB **** **** NR
Paul Jones QB **** **** NR

No change for PSU. Consensus on the rankings of their two commits.

#5 Minnesota – 3 commits
Name Pos Rivals Scout ESPN
Jimmy Gjere OL **** NR NR
Antoine Lewis CB NR NR NR
Konrad Zagzebski LB NR NR NR
Lamonte Edwards Ath NR NR NR

Edwards could be a wideout or a linebacker (maybe even a big safety) at the next level.

#6 Michigan State – 1 commit
Name Pos. Rivals Scout ESPN
Max Bullough LB **** NR NR

As expected, Bullough is in the 4-star range.

#7 Illinois – 1 commit
Name Pos. Rivals Scout ESPN
Corey Cooper CB NR NR NR

A single in-state commit.

#8 Iowa – 1 commit
Name Pos. Rivals Scout ESPN
James Morris LB NR NR NR

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.

    Devin Gardner a 4-star?! Give me a break. He obviously lacks poise as a HS junior and cant throw the ball more than 5 yards.

    AJ Westendorp on the other hand.. HA! I once saw him play some small christian school, cant remember the name, and he had 6 touchdowns and impregnated 4 nuns..by halftime!

    We once had a bachelor party for AJ. He ate the entire cake before we could tell him there was a stripper in it!
