Power 5

Apologies to those who read this before it went to Blog Heaven.

Have you ever wondered how Ohio State and the B1G stack up against the other members of the Power Five conferences in recruiting for 2016? How the top recruit in the B1G compares to the other Power Five team's top recruits? This series will answer those questions and will be updated every Sunday.

At the bottom of this article you will also find a breakdown of each conference.
