Big Ten 2009 Recruiting Class Rankings 8-30-08

Action since last rankings:
8-23-08 Iowa gains commitment from Brandon Wegher.
8-26-08 Illinois gains commitment from Hugh Thornton.
8-29-08 Michigan gains commitments from Vincent Smith and Brandin Hawthorne.

Also, a programming note: Friday Night Lights might be delayed until Sunday this week because I'll be working at the game all day today. Shouldn't matter much, especially since Michigan's newest commits don't play until Saturday anyway.
