How good would that guy be at basketball? If you’re an avid sports fan, chances are you’ve probably asked yourself that very question when watching a college football game, or vice versa. Last year, around this time, I wrote a story about if Big Ten basketball players could form a football team. Now, let’s flip the switch.

But, did you know neither Jackson or Hamilton were ranked in the top 100 players in 2014 recruiting rankings? This got me thinking about how highly-ranked freshmen have performed since arriving in the Big Ten.

We all have dream vacations. Some of us would like to go to Aruba. Others to Spain, Australia or perhaps Japan. All good choices. But no trip could possibly top this dream junket through the 2015 Big Ten schedule.
