After the Big Ten's tremendous 2012-13 season and resultant talent exodus, the league's coaches need to reload.
Indiana lost a pair of lottery picks, Michigan lost two all-conference guards, Ohio State lost the league's leading scorer and Minnesota lost a pair of rugged forwards (and its coach besides).
Coaching stars like Tom Izzo, Bo Ryan, Thad Matta and Tom Crean aren't harvesting Kentucky-esque classes with seven McDonald's All-Americans, but they certainly get the attention of any recruit they stop to see. These intraconference battles are as ferocious as anything that will be seen on the court.
The following 12 players, presented in order of their 247 Composite ranking, are being courted by at least two Big Ten schools. Each is rated highly enough by coaches and analysts that their potential should be worth all the fighting.
And in case you're wondering where prospects like Dante Exum and Ahmed Hill are, the list is confined to players considering more than one Big Ten school. After all, the battles between the Big Ten titans are half the fun.
