Recruiting impact of Big East uncertainty

10/17/2011

What type of impact is all the uncertainty surrounding the Big East having on recruiting this season?

Dave Hooker of ESPN Recruiting Nation polled Big East coaches and recruits to find out. The coaches have fielded questions from recruits about where the Big East stands, and try to answer as best as they can. You need to be an Insider to read the story, but here is a brief excerpt:
