Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg
It was a fairly quiet weekend on the Big Ten recruiting front, though things will definitely pick up this week as national signing day approaches. Offensive lineman Marcus Hall will announce his college choice today, as he decides between Ohio State, considered the favorite for his services, Tennessee and Miami.
Here's a quick weekend recap, courtesy of ESPN's Scouts Inc. national recruiting director Tom Luginbill and other sources.
- Indiana picked up a commitment from linebacker Griffen Dahlstrom of Roachdale, Ind. Rated as the nation's No. 40 linebacker by Scouts Inc., Dahlstrom is the third linebacker in Indiana's 2009 class.
- Indiana also picked up a commitment from running back Nick Turner of Indianapolis.
- The St. Petersburg Times is reporting that offensive tackle Jamar Bass, a junior college transfer, has not enrolled at Illinois and could be heading elsewhere. Bass was expected to begin classes at Illinois on Jan. 20, but the school has not announced his signing or the one of another juco, linebacker Aaron Gress. Gress is listed in the Illinois student directory as of this morning.
