Big Ten Football 2023 recruiting rankings for mid-June

It is the backbone of any major college football program. Those who go out and get the best recruiting players and then develop them will win many matches. We’ve seen it from the likes of Ohio, Alabama, and Oklahoma.

Who knows how things will change with the new name, image and likeness capabilities out there, but we’re pretty sure the winning equation will still depend on getting the best players year after year. A basis for molding in precision-tuned sports machines.

With that in mind, we thought we’d review what things look like in hiring before we start turning our attention to the upcoming season this fall and all in line with previewing things in the summer.

Who leads the pack in the Big Ten, and who has more groceries to shop for than trying to make a competitive meal at the adult’s table?

Below are the updated 247Sports composite rankings for each Big Ten team in late June. As usual, we’re picking up from 14th and working our way up to number one.
