Buckeyes take top spot from Michigan

For the last couple of months, Harbaugh’s Wolverines had held the top spot in the 2019 Big Ten recruiting rankings. In the last week, Urban Meyer & co. came knocking and stole that spot away.

Te’Cory Couch

On June 9, defensive back Te’Cory Couch decommitted from the University of Michigan. Couch had committed less than a month earlier on April 15. This 4-star loss pushed Ohio State into first place in the Big Ten recruiting rankings for the 2019 class.

Harry Miller

Extending Ohio State’s lead in the rankings was the commitment of Harry Miller the day after Couch’s decommitment. Miller is rated as a 4-star and is the second-ranked center in the country. The 247Sports composite gives Miller an impressive 0.9814 rating. Miller is entering his senior year in Buford, Ga. and is ranked eighth in the state.

Northwestern and Minnesota rise in rankings

Over in the Big Ten West division, Wisconsin is getting some pressure this recruiting cycle from Evanston and Minneapolis.

Gophers break the top four

Minnesota has jumped two spots in the latest rankings to fourth in the Big Ten. The Gophers have a 172.05 score with one 4-star committed alongside fourteen 3-stars. Five 3-star recruits committed to Minnesota on Sunday, giving them the boost they needed in the rankings. Outside of the scope of the Big Ten, Minnesota has also jumped to 19th nationally for the class of 2019. Perhaps this could be the jumpstart coach P.J. Fleck needs to put the Gophers in contention in the Big Ten West.

Northwestern up to sixth

After finishing at the bottom of the conference for the class of 2018, Northwestern has risen to sixth for the upcoming recruiting class. Fitzgerald’s Wildcats have received 13 commitments—all 3-stars. The latest commitment to Evanston came on June 9 from linebacker Michael Jansey. Jansey is 6-2 and 210 pounds from Batavia, Ill. Ranked eighth in the state and in the top 50 at outside linebacker, Jansey will be a strong addition to the Wildcat defense.
