Teams are headed into camp, but that doesn't mean recruiting will stop. While it wasn't an overly exciting weekend for Big Ten recruiting, there was a commitment, offers that went out and visits that took place. Now a few questions must be answered.
Here is a look at the weekend wrap on Big Ten recruiting.
Biggest news: Defensive end Da'Shawn Hand (Woodbridge, Va./Woodbridge) set his decision date for Nov. 14. Alabama, Florida and Michigan are his finalists, and each school will receive an official visit before he announces the final decision. The only visit he currently has set up is to Ann Arbor on Sept. 7 when Michigan takes on Notre Dame at night, but should have the other two set shortly.
Biggest commitment: Michigan State landed 2014 defensive end Robert Bowers (Columbus, Ohio/Walnut Ridge). Bowers held offers from West Virginia, Kentucky, Cincinnati, Louisville, Pitt and Purdue -- among others.
