State of the Union: Big Ten Recruiting Roundup 6.12.13

Oh, hai, Indiana.

For the first time in this recruiting class, all 14 schools in the expanded B1G are represented! Overall, there was a lot of jockeying for position this week, with changes up and down the board.

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
Michigan 12 3.42 3.67 3.73 3.91 6 2 3 1

The Hoosiers finally get on the board this cycle, and jump their MHR (sorry Iowa, that rivalry's taken) for the #13 spot in the conference.

Over half the conference gained commits these past two weeks, and with their two additions, the Nittany Lions once again find themselves in third conference-wide.

As with last week, this chart includes an Illini commit that I can't confirm will be counted in the class of '13 or '14; also, for those unfamiliar with my tiebreak scenario, I give the higher ranking to the school that has more commits. Minnesota and Illinois have the same average team rank this week, but by virtue of having the bigger class (so far), Beckman's boys get the coveted #9 spot on our list.

The Buckeyes added a kicker this week, albeit one without any other offers. Look for that, along with his lack of STARZZZZ, to change now that he's to be a Buckeye.

Two commits didn't get the memo that Penn State recruiting is dead, as the Nittany Lions added an in-state defensive end and a touted QB to their class.

At the suggestion of one of our vaunted commenters (hi Dinsdale!), I've bolded the new additions.

editor's note: I don't know if it was the post-vacation lull or what, but in updating this week, I realized that most of my charts from last week weren't updated in the post that got published. Sorry about that--but this week's is up to date. I swear! Really!
