State of the Union: Big Ten Recruiting Update 12.18.12

Gentleman's agreement? We don't need no stinking "gentleman's agreement".

In the last spurt before the traditional recruiting "dead period", add Iowa to the list of schools who've lost a commit this year to a fellow Big Ten school.

Team # of commits Avg Rivals ranking Avg 247 ranking Avg Scout ranking Avg ESPN ranking Rivals team rank 247 team rank Scout team rank recruiting rank in B1G

One week after jumping into third place, Nebraska falls again this week, and Indiana moves up a spot.

Additionally, there were a slew of decommits this week in various B1G programs, some to SEC schools--one in particular should be no surprise to anyone.
