Big Ten 2009 Recruiting Class Rankings 5-10-08

I've come to realize that the commitment pages aren't always updated by the end of the week, so if you're a fan of a school that doesn't get much notice, drop any commitments your team might get in the comments.

Action since last rankings:
By request, Notre Dame added.
5-3-08 Iowa gains commitment from David Barrent.
5-4-08 Minnesota gains commitment from Hasan Lipscomb.

New Rankings:

With only 6(ish) scholarships left, this will be a quality-over-quantity class for the Bucks.

Cierre Wood

Theo Riddick

Tyler Stockton

Jake Golic
Wood is a very good prospect, but all are slightly overrated because of their school of choice (especially Golic).

#5 Minnesota - 5 commits

Moses Alipate

Hasan Lipscomb

Ed Olsen

Josh Campion

Victor Keise
Lipscomb is a speedy little bastard from Russell Shepard's high school, and I think he is likely a little underrated. Keise will probably end up a mid 3-star.

#6 Illinois - 2 commits
DT
****
Lendell Buckner
OT

Leon Hill
Illinois started fast, but has since stagnated (and lost Melvin Fellows to the Bucks).

#7 Penn State - 3 commits
S
***
Malcolm Willis
OT
***
Mark Arcidiacono
C
*
Ty Howle
Arcidiacono actually had some pretty good offers, albeit from schools that offer anyone with a pulse (Notre Dame and Florida). I think he is a little underrated. Howle will end up a high 3-star.

#8 Wisconsin - 3 commits
DT
****
Jared Kohout
OG

Ryan Groy

Shelby Harris
Wisconsin has all linemen, all from America's Dairyland.

#9 Iowa - 2 commits

David Barrent

Brad Rogers
Their only commit comes from one of the least important positions on the field. Huzzah!

#10 Northwestern - 2 commits

Evan Watkins

Mike Trumpy
At least they have some commits. Come on, state of Indiana.

T-11th - Indiana, Purdue (0 commits)

    You can remove Givens from tOeSUckers and put him in the PSU column. He did the decommit dance this weekend. I wasn't able to get Pryor to fork over some of the money I gave him to give to Givens.
