Pat Fitzgerald

2013 National Signing Day: Northwestern

One month removed from completing a 10-win season, Northwestern head coach Pat Fitzgerald announced the addition of 21 newcomers to the Wildcats football program for the 2013 season — 19 inked to National Letters of Intent along with two walk-ons admitted during the early decision process. [ RELATED: Dienhart’s National Signing Day Notebook ] Among the19 signees, 10 are slated to find a home on the offensive side of the ball, with eight on defense and one on special teams. Sixteen of the 19 signees hail from either Illinois (5), Ohio (5), Texas (3) or California (3), with the remaining three coming

Bo Pelini

2013 National Signing Day: Nebraska

Bo Pelini and company did a good job, bringing in a big class (26) that lacks a superstar but has a lot of high-quality signees. There’s a strong collection of players on defense, paced by DT Maliek Collins, DE A.J. Natter, OLB Josh Banderas, and S D.J. Singleton of Jersey City, N.J. [ RELATED: Dienhart’s National Signing Day Notebook ] The offense welcomes two touted running backs in Adam Taylor of Katy, Texas, and Terrell Newby of West Hills, Calif. Johnny Stanton is a ballyhooed quarterback from Santa Margarita, Calif. JC transfers Randy Gregory (DE) and Matt Finnin (OT) will

2013 National Signing Day: Minnesota

Coming off their first bowl since 2009 and entering their third season under Jerry Kill, a last-place finish in Big Ten recruiting ranks is a bit of a disappointment. The fact this was a small class played a role in that low ranking. But just know this: Kill never signed top classes at Northern Illinois, and that program just went to the Orange Bowl with a core of players he recruited.

Watch our crew discuss and analyze the latest Michigan State recruiting class now. [ RELATED: Dienhart’s National Signing Day Notebook ] The class features 18 players representing six states (Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin) and Ontario.

2013 National Signing Day: Michigan

Michigan was right on the heels of Ohio State, signing more players than any Big Ten school (27). The cream of the class is the guy who committed last: Derrick Green, a 5-11, 220-pound smasher with speed from Richmond, Va., who is considered the top running back in the nation by Scout.com. Green picked Michigan over Auburn and Tennessee and solves a gnawing need at running back for the Wolverines.

Kirk Ferentz

2013 National Signing Day: Iowa

Coming off the program’s worst season since 2000, it’s difficult to get a read on this class. There are no five- or four-star players in a class that is heavy on offensive players. In fact, only one Big Ten school signed more than Iowa’s 12. (Michigan has 15.) It’s a good thing, too, because the Hawkeyes struggled mightily on that side of the ball in 2012. [ RELATED: Dienhart’s National Signing Day Notebook ] Colin Goebel and Sean Welsh are building blocks for the offensive line. TE Jon Wisnieski may be the best prospect for a program that traditionally churns

Kevin Wilson

2013 National Signing Day: Indiana

Indiana head football coach Kevin Wilson announced the signing of 22 student-athletes to National Letters of Intent to play for the Hoosiers in 2013. Indiana signed 13 defensive players, five offensive players and four athletes. The Hoosiers added six defensive linemen, four linebackers and three defensive backs on defense and two tight ends, two wide receivers and one running back on offense. [ RELATED: Dienhart’s National Signing Day Notebook ] The class features players from eight different states, including five from Indiana, five from Florida, four from Georgia, four from Ohio, one from Illinois, one from Louisiana, one from Nebraska and

Tim Beckman

2013 National Signing Day: Illinois

Illinois head football coach Tim Beckman announced Wednesday the signing of 15 student-athletes to National Letters of Intent to play football for the Fighting Illini in 2013. The 15 newest Illini join 10 other newcomers who are already on campus taking classes – five early enrollees and five junior college transfers – in the 25-man 2013 recruiting class. [ RELATED: Dienhart’s National Signing Day Notebook ] “The members of the 2013 Fighting Illini recruiting class are an excellent addition to our program,” Beckman said. “We were able to add quality depth at several positions and upgraded the total athleticism of

Mock brackets: How does Big Ten stack up?

The weekly mock brackets are out, and the Big Ten looks primed for seven bids—at least for now, as Illinois seems to be hanging by a thread. The Fighting Illini appear in three of the four mock brackets I check each week. Each analyst also has two Big Ten teams as No. 1 seeds, with Indiana and Michigan leading a group that also includes Michigan State, Ohio State, Minnesota and Wisconsin in each bracket. Here’s a look at the brackets. RPI Rankings Rankings as of 2/5/2013 Rank School RPI Prev Rank 1 Duke 19-2 0.7011 1 2 Miami (FL) 18-3 0.6919 2
