Big Ten 2009 Recruiting Class Rankings 11-22-08

Action since last rankings:
11-11-08 Northwestern gains commitment from Arby Fields.
11-12-08 Iowa gains commitment from Tyler Harrell.
11-14-08 Iowa gains commitment from Shane Dibona.
11-17-08 Illinois gains commitment from Tank Carradine.
11-18-08 Iowa gains commitment from Martin Hopkins. Iowa gains commitment from Joshua Brown.
11-19-08 Michigan gains commitment from Pearlie Graves. Northwestern gains commitment from Cooper Gerami.

Illinois is right on the heels of Penn State, despite having 5(!) fewer commits. I'd be surprised if they didn't end up passing the Nittany Lions by the end of the year, assuming all the current commitments hold. Michigan pulls a little closer to Notre Dame. Indiana's top commit, Jeremy Gainer, is now a soft verbal. Continued laughing at Purdue.

    I don't think Shaq is a five star on either site.

    He had been on Rivals in the recent past. I'll downgrade him in the next update.
