via Rittenberg. Craig Haubert breaks down the state of recruiting in the B10. Some good, honest evaluations on every team. Quote on PSU below: How many Big Ten programs are recruiting like true powerhouses? Is it just Ohio State? Any others? CH: The only one that recruits like a true powerhouse on a consistent basis is Ohio State. Penn State would be the next and then any given year, Nebraska, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, [Mark] Dantonio's starting to push Michigan State there. They would be the next tier. But Ohio State's the only one in the last few years that has consistently recruited at a national, top 10-type level in the Big Ten. Penn State has the ability to do that and they flex their muscles sometimes. They've kind of gotten a bad rap this year because they're not going to sign a very big class and they started out very slowly. But Penn State's still a major player.
