Michigan and Ohio State both sit in the top 10 recruiting rankings this year after each landed top 10 classes in 2013 -- the Buckeyes were third, while the Wolverines were sixth.

That's why it should come as no surprise that the two schools have the top four recruiters in the Big Ten Conference for the Class of 2014 so far.

Here's a look at the top 10 recruiters in the Big Ten and why they deserve such high praise:

The summer camp season is when you see schools send out several new offers. Some of those offers turn into immediate commitments. Such is the case with athlete Nathan Hall (Sylvania, Ohio/Southview).

Hall landed an offer from Northwestern over the weekend. He mulled the offer for less than 24 hours before pledging to the Wildcats.

“I really like the coaching staff,” Hall said. “The academics are second to none, great campus. I really like what the staff has done with the program in the past few years.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Hall will likely play linebacker for the Wildcats, who now have 12 commitments in their 2014 class.

Hall’s older brother Jimmy Hall is a member of the Wildcats’ football team.

The Wildcats have the 19th-best recruiting class in the nation, and this 2014 class is already regarded as the best in Northwestern history.

The recruiting process is nothing new for junior athlete Nate Hall (Sylvania, Ohio/Southview) since both his brother Jimmy, now a sophomore at Northwestern, and friend Allen Gant went through the process.

Hall had seen what his brother and Gant, now at Michigan, went through and how they conducted themselves. That has helped him in the early stages of his recruitment.

“I went through some of these things with my brother, so I had a head-start on everything,” he said. “I already know what to expect and how everything will happen. Based off my brother’s recruitment, he didn’t get his first offers until around the spring, so I’ll just wait for then to see what happens.”
