Earlier this month, we took a look at splashes in the Big Ten recruiting universe through the first half of March. With Easter and April Fool’s having passed, March is a warp. Here is what we learned.

Illinois Fighting Illini

Don’t look now, but the Illini may be on the up and up under Lovie Smith. On the 23rd, 5-star athlete Isaiah Williams committed to Illinois. Williams is 5-10, 160 pounds and ranked as the 28th best player in the country. He goes to Trinity Catholic in Saint Louis, Mo. and has offers from nearly every major program in the country. 247Sports gives Williams a 0.9835 overall rating.

Michigan Wolverines

The Wolverines have had some excellent recruiting classes under Jim Harbaugh, and 2019 will likely be no different. On March 16, Cade McNamara committed to Michigan. McNamara is a pro style quarterback from Reno, Nev. McNamara is rated a 4-star listed as 6-1, 187 pounds. He’s ranked first in the state of Nevada and 9th as a pro style quarterback.

Ohio State Buckeyes

Ohio State landed eighth ranked running back Sampson James on March 19. James is 6-1, 211 pounds from Avon, Ind. He’s rated as a 4-star by 247Sports and ran for 1,782 yards and 20 touchdowns this season. James also added two receiving touchdowns as a pair of cherries on top.
