Big Ten Recruiting Class Rankings 4-19-09

Compare to the previous edition of the recruiting class rankings. I’ve also added the ESPN rankings for the players that have them at this point. “150*” indicates they’re on the ESPNU 150 watchlist, and their numerical ratings (presumably higher than those who have been rated thus far) have not been revealed yet. Expect some new commits by the next update, as spring games at various schools should yield some recruiting returns.
