PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Just wonder if anyone knows about other league schools except tsun. Will the gap widen considerably more over the years under Meyer?
The last I checked all other B1G schools other than the Buckeyes and scUM have no recruits rated above 3*.

Appreciate the info and did not want to seem lazy so to make up for it I broke it down in case anyone is interested. If not, it was insightful to do. Minnesota has 29 verbals?

WOW, not used to seeing PSU class that bad on 4 & 5 * recruits
O H I O is the Buckeye State
As long as Wisconsin, Nebraska, Iowa, and MSU are bringing in respectable numbers of 4* recruits, I'm not too worried about the state of the Big Ten. We've done respectably, all things considered, against SEC teams in bowl games (I think the record is fairly even). Its funny that even we, who know all about the media's bias for the SEC, still fall for the hype ourselves. The coaches at these programs are fairly under-rated, and really do a good job of coaching these kids up. It seems part of the problem has been match ups in bowl games, or we may have an even better record than we do now. I'm sure they will do a good job finishing as well (ex, Nebraska is in line for the 5* OL A. Peat). Realistically, I think this is the best we can hope for, at least until the board of trustees at Penn State is able to clean up the nuclear fallout that was their recent scandal.
Keep in mind that several 4-5*s would've been on other teams had Meyer not become the HC.
Those are Scouts star rankings you have posted up there
Corrected. Thanks for the heads up GOBUCKS22250.
I know we don't really care because it's Minnesota but man they have a lot of recruits.
