Michigan schools lead the Big Ten
Originally Published: May 17, 2012By Reggie Rankin | ESPN RecruitingNation
- Here's a team-by-team breakdown of the Big Ten's 2012 recruiting classes. Gary Harris (Indianapolis/Hamilton Southeastern) can score with strong, athletic slashes and defend all three perimeter positions. Harris is joined by two four-star forwards in Kenny Kaminski (Medina, Ohio/Medina), who is a very good shooter with size and will excel in the Spartans' ball-screen offense, and Matt Costello (Linwood, Mich./Bay City Western), who can get it done in the high-post area and with his back to the basket. However, the most versatile player in Izzo's four-man group is four-star small forward Denzel Valentine (Lansing, Mich./Sexton), who is a matchup nightmare with his size, skill and feel for the game. Yogi Ferrell (Indianapolis/Park Tudor) leads the way and should run the team and set up his teammates from the moment he steps on campus. Small forward Jeremy Hollowell (Indianapolis/Lawrence Central) is a matchup problem, thanks to his ability to score inside and out from the wing position, while power forward Hanner Mosquera-Perea (LaPort, Ind./La Lumiere) is an elite athlete who finishes rebounds and blocks shots with authority. Center Peter Jurkin (Charlotte. N.C./United Faith Christian Academy) and shooting guard Ron Patterson (Indianapolis/Broad Ripple) round out the incoming group. This class, combined with who the Hoosiers have coming back, should have Indiana fans excited.
