Activity is starting to screech to a halt and many of the Big Ten coaches will be addressing the media within the next 30 minutes.Ã‚Â
Here’s the latest, includingÃ‚Â schools that have completed their recruiting classes:
- Michigan is done.Ã‚Â They lost a few recruits but overall it’s a good class. Many were impressed by Hoke’s personal touch.
- Penn State wraps it up with a class of 16 recruits.Ã‚Â OL Donovan Smith andÃ‚Â safety Adrian Amos rounded out the class. Amos is a great pickup as he was No. 68 in this year’s recruiting class and a much need in this position for the team.
- Purdue joins the club with 12 new signees. Here’s the breakdown: three running backs,Ã‚Â two defensive linemen, three linebackers, two tight ends,Ã‚Â two wide receivers, two defensive backs,Ã‚Â one athlete and one long snapper.
- Indiana’s first recruiting class under new coach Kevin Wilson includes theÃ‚Â 2010 Indiana Mr. Football award winner,Ã‚Â one four-star recruit and 16 three-star recruits in the Rivals.com and Scout.com rankings.
- Scout ranks Minnesota’s recruiting class at No. 9 in the Big Ten conference. The teamÃ‚Â wasÃ‚Â heavy on theÃ‚Â offensive linemen front.
- Michigan State had aÃ‚Â big coup and landed a JUCO All-American, OL Fou Fonoti out of Cerritos College. The school was waiting for one more letter of intent.
- And Iowa is almost done, waiting for some stragglers. Here’s a list so far of their signees. Ferentz speaks toÃ‚Â the press at 3:30 p.m. CT.
I’ll be back for one more wrap-up after the coaches are done speaking.
