Rivals: OSU and Michigan bring in top Big Ten units
Rivals released their position rankings for the class of 2012, and the news is - unsurprisingly - good. The Wolverines ranked #1 at running back, #5 at wide receiver, tied for #1 at tight end, #1 at offensive line, #1 at defensive tackle, #2 at defensive end, #1 at linebacker, and #2 at defensive back. Michigan didn't take a quarterback or an athlete, so they were unranked at each of those positions. Michigan's average ranking in those eight categories (not counting the two in which they were unranked) is 1.75. Ohio State's average ranking in all ten categories (since they took a quarterback and a couple athletes) is 2.4.
