A look at five recruiting storylines from the Big Ten worth watching following spring football.

Who will finish No. 1?

Here's a big surprise: Michigan and Ohio State will battle it out for the top class in the Big Ten. Again.

Brady Hoke at Michigan and Urban Meyer at Ohio State are both off to fast starts on the recruiting trail as we near the middle of May. For a second straight season, Michigan's class is already two-thirds full and it is not even summer. Of Michigan's 17 commitments, a remarkable 11 are ranked in the ESPN 150. The Buckeyes are not far behind, though. Meyer has suffered a pair of decommitments recently, but he still has 11 commits in the 2013 class and six are in the ESPN 150.
