The Big Ten recruiting trail is awfully competitive. Head coaches can't do it all by themselves, so each of them must have at least one ace recruiter on staff.
Being an ace recruiter is a big job; that assistant coach is usually assigned to recruit the program's top targets. He is also expected to bring in the most commitments for his school's recruiting class.
With July not being too far away, the 2015 recruiting cycle is moving along. That also means ace recruiters in the Big Ten are starting to emerge.
