Big Ten newcomers who could step in
We finally know where these guys have chosen to go to school. Now the real questions start.
Will some former five-star prospects prove they're worth all the hype? Could a hole on a team's depth chart allow a sleeper recruit to contribute right away? Which junior college prospects can step into featured roles immediately?
We're trying to provide some early answers to those questions by offering lists of five true freshmen or junior college transfers in each conference who could make immediate impacts. We already profiled the top newcomers in the ACC and the Big 12. Our series continues today with a look at the Big Ten, which will be introducing plenty of newcomers at the running back and linebacker positions.
Keep in mind we were considering only true freshmen and junior college transfers - not transfers from Division I schools - for the purposes of this project. That's why we didn't include Maryland transfer Danny O'Brien, the likely starting quarterback for Wisconsin.
