Recruiting expert: Illinois football still needs to scour Florida

HQ: What are the biggest surprises in the Big Ten in the 2013 recruiting cycle? MF: "Some of the things Michigan’s done have been very surprising – they have like eight commitments from the state of Ohio right now. That’s just crazy. But overall, Penn State gets the most attention. And it’s not that Penn State’s recruiting well, but it’s the fact that (Bill O’Brien) is doing it so quickly … They finished so badly last year in recruiting when everybody jumped ship. I thought it would take a year to get recruiting to a high level. But when you look at their class, they have six four-stars … What O’Brien is doing at Penn State is probably at least eight to 10 months, possible 12 months ahead of schedule."
