Here's a team-by-team breakdown of the Big Ten's 2012 recruiting classes after the early signing period. Gary Harris (Indianapolis/Hamilton SE), who is a supreme talent that continues to improve and has a chance to be special. Skilled PF Kenny Kaminski (Medina, Ohio/Medina Senior) will be a terrific pick-and-pop forward in the Spartans' set plays with size and deep shooting range. C Matt Costello (Linwood, Mich./Bay City Western) will provide size and some back-to-the-basket scoring, while SF Denzel Valentine (Lansing, Mich./Sexton) makes terrific plays with the ball in his hands thanks to his ability to handle and pass. Mitch McGary (Chesterton, Ind./Brewster Academy), who has the size, motor and skill to make an immediate impact. Add super athletic scoring wing Glenn Robinson (St. John, Ind./Lake Central), the son of Purdue great Glenn "Big Dog" Robinson, and Canadian sharp shooter SF Nik Stauskas (Mississauga, Ontario/St. Mark's) and the Wolverines land three ESPNU 100 players that not only fill a need but make the Maize and Blue a major player in the Big Ten for years to come.
