When we posted updated Big Ten recruiting rankings a month ago we thought we were nearly at the end but there’s been additional action across the conference. Michigan State and Minnesota added recruits and several services updated their rankings one final time. We also added in rankings from 247 Sports including their team composite ranking as a reference point (national ranking in parentheses).

Bonus Historical Chart

    You missed Iowa getting Jarrod Uthoff. He’s a stud…even though I hate Iowa basketball and football.

    • Transfers aren’t included, mostly because there aren’t comparable rankings to use… Evan Gordon to IU would be another.

      • boilerbacker31

        fair enough.

  • Champswest

    It seems like IU brings in 6 players every year.
