Big Ten 2009 Recruiting Class Rankings 9-27-08

Action since last rankings:
9-26-08 Michigan gains commitment from Thomas Gordon.

Apparently while I wasn't paying attention (and I rarely am), Rivals updated its rankings. I've adjusted them accordingly below. Also, for consistency's sake, I'm now only including prospects who are listed on the Rivals commit lists.

I still anticipate a drop for Fox. There's got to be a reason a guy from Ohio never even got on the radar of OSU or either Michigan school.

I'm going to be honest here: I've seen Maxwell play this year and BOY HOWDY does he suck. He might end up a three-star when all is said and done, unless the game against Saginaw just happened to be the worst of his life.
