While you've been enjoying your planned or unplanned sick day from work, recruits across the country have been single-handedly saving the fax machine business (nevermind the ability to take a picture, save as a PDF and upload it from your mobile device).
Today is the rare day when fans can rejoice in the future prospects of their team, no matter how good or bad the season that was finished. Some may even call it a national holiday.
Could this be the class that saves Tim Beckman's job? Will Purdue make a quick turnaround thanks to the first full class for Darrell Hazell? What about the affects of Michigan State's Rose Bowl win?
Heck, will this be the class that starts turning around the prospects of the Big Ten as a whole?
The answers to those questions may not be known today, but it won't stop us from projecting into the future.
With all the names signed on dotted lines, crazy announcements done and 18-year-olds in the spotlight, it's time to start looking at how these classes actually shaped up.
Before we give you the winners and losers of the 2014 class from the Big Ten, here are the things under consideration in power ranking these classes:
- Player Star Rankings
- Team Rankings
- Needs Being Filled
- Depth of Class
- Historic Position of Class
Let's get to it!
