As March begins, Michigan and Ohio State are on top in the very early Big Ten recruiting rankings followed by Michigan State, Minnesota and Northwestern.

The Wolverines have three commitments, including two of the top defensive back prospects in the Midwest -- Delonte Hollowell (Detroit/Cass Tech) and Greg Brown (Fremont, Ohio/Ross). Hollowell is one of the top 10 prospects in the state of Michigan, while Brown is the No. 11 overall prospect in the state of Ohio.

Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez landed commitment No. 3 a little over a week ago when wide receiver Shawn Conway (Birmingham, Mich./Seaholm) said he would sign with the Wolverines.
