Compare to the previous edition of the recruiting class rankings.
4-4-09 Illinois gains commitment from Shawn Afryl.
4-5-09 Michigan gains (public) commitment from Devin Gardner. Minnesota gains commitment from Tom Parish.
|#1 Ohio State – 4 commits|
Everything remains static for the Buckeyes.
|#2 Notre Dame – 3 commits|
|#3 Michigan – 7 commits|
Gardner goes public with his commitment, giving Michigan a trio of 4-star prospects early in the process. With the spring game this upcoming Saturday, I wouldn’t be surprised if there are several more commits.
|#4 Penn State – 2 commits|
Paul Jones has decommitted from Penn State, but he’s still on the Rivals commit list, so in the rankings he shall stay. Keep in mind that he no longer considers himself committed to the Nittany Lions, though.
|#5 Minnesota – 5 commits|
The Gophers pick up yet another Wisconsin player. This time it’s QB Tom Parish.
|#6 Michigan State – 1 commit|
No change for Bullough and the Spartans.
|#7 Illinois – 2 commits|
The Illini grab offensive lineman Shawn Afryl, who is unranked to both sites.
|#8 Iowa – 1 commit|
Still no ranking for Morris.
Indiana, Northwestern, Purdue, Wisconsin – 0 commits.
