The Big Ten has been a giant thorn in the side of the SEC on the recruiting trail of late, and you can attribute most of the agitation to Jim Harbaugh and Urban Meyer.

Harbaugh struck a nerve with his southern counterparts thanks to his satellite camps, most recently announcing the team will hold spring practice at IMG Academy in Florida. Meyer has pulled top prospects from the Southeast and convinced them to come north since arriving at Ohio State, tactics that helped the Buckeyes with a national championship in 2014.

These two coaches might not agree on much, but they will be in lockstep when it comes to disrupting the SEC's plans to acquire some of the elite talent in the 2017 class.

Here's a look at five 2017 recruits Meyer and Harbaugh could land that would leave a bruise on the SEC teams that might miss.
