Big Ten 2013 recruiting scorecard

By Adam Rittenberg

National signing day is only nine months away, and there's been a recent surge in verbal commitments around the Big Ten following spring games, junior days and the like. I figured this is as good a time as any to check on the progress for each Big Ten squad's 2013 class.

Some teams are moving a bit faster than others in 2013 recruiting. But just because a team doesn't have a lot of verbals doesn't mean it will sign a lousy class. I do know, however, that Michigan fans are fretting a little less than others around the league after another blistering start to recruiting by Brady Hoke and his staff.

Here's your latest recruiting scorecard, sorted by number of verbal commitments to date:
