1. Rutgers (Ranked 19th overall by MaxPreps)
There's no "wow" class in the Big East but Rutgers is on top of the rankings with a solid class from top to bottom. Recent pick up Leonte Carroo is a talented wide receiver the program was able to keep close to home.
2. Cincinnati (20th)
This class recently received a bump from a couple of Michigan recruits but the prize is quarterback Bennie Coney out of Florida. Plenty of athletes on both sides of the ball in this class.
3. West Virginia (24th)
With Dana Holgorsen in charge, it's no surprise to see offensive talent commit to West Virginia. Quarterback Ford Childress has a strong arm and receiver Deontay McManus is an explosive pass catcher.
Todd Graham has assembled a very good first (full) class and it wouldn't be surprising if he makes some more headway out on the recruiting trail. Quarterback Chad Voytik is the star of this group.
If there's one school that could take advantage of Miami's troubles, it could be Charlie Strong and Louisville. This is a good group of offensive linemen to build around too.
It's not a big class at the moment but it does have great talent and the best bang for buck in the conference. Tyler Cameron is a great fit at quarterback and Sean Price had a breakout summer.
Paul Pasqualoni has put together an under the radar group drawing on some Northeast talent with a few Florida players mixed in. Casey Cochran is a nice local pick up at quarterback
This is a bit of a grab-bag class with a little bit of everything from everywhere. The best player might be safety Julian Whigham.
