Inaugural 2010 Big Ten Recruiting Class Rankings

With most Big Ten teams already sporting at least one commit, it’s time to break out the recruiting class rankings once more. This year, I’ve expanded to include multiple sites’ opinions of each player, though they are listed in order from most to least credible. As Rivals and ESPN release their initial rankings, I’ll update.

For a couple reason (junior days at multiple schools, and the fact that it’s Selection Sunday), no recruiting rankings next Sunday. If there’s reason to, I may publish some later next week instead. The charts should also look prettier in coming weeks.

Ohio State – 4 commits
Name Pos Rivals Scout ESPN
Andrew Norwell OL NR ***** NR
JT Moore DE NR **** NR
Jamel Turner DE NR **** NR
David Durham LB NR NR NR

Lots of highly-ranked guys, al in-state for the Buckeyes. Turner is expected to have 5-star potential.

Notre Dame – 3 commits
Name Pos Rivals Scout ESPN
Christian Lombard OL NR ***** NR
Chris Martin DE NR ***** NR
Daniel Smith WR NR **** NR

Strong start to the class. It will be interesting to see where it ends up if the Irish have another weak season.

Michigan – 3 commits
Name Pos Rivals Scout ESPN
Ricardo Miller WR NR **** NR
Jerald Robinson WR NR NR NR
Jeremy Jackson WR NR NR NR

All these guys are expected to end up in the four-star range.

Penn State – 2 commits
Name Pos Rivals Scout ESPN
Mike Hull LB NR **** NR
Paul Jones QB NR **** NR

A couple good in-state commits for the Nittany Lions.

Minnesota – 3 commits
Name Pos Rivals Scout ESPN
Jimmy Gjere OL NR NR NR
Antoine Lewis CB NR NR NR
Konrad Zagzebski LB NR NR NR

Unlike past years, when Wisconsin would raid the top Minnesota talent, the Gophers are starting to cross the border the other way.

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

Bullough is expected to end up as a 4-star.

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

A single in-state commit.

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.

    Is it just me or is Michigan State MIA?

    Wow, I’m an idiot. I thought I had them all because I counted 11, not taking into account that, with Notre Dame, there are 12 teams.
