NU Remains Third-Ranked Big Ten Class

Scout.com released its final version of the Scout 300 rankings, forcing movement within the Scout.com player rankings and team rankings. This included a few minor changes for Northwestern commits.

The analysts of FOX Sports/Scout.com released the new Scout 300 rankings on Wednesday, causing some movement in player and team rankings.

Spring-Ford (PA) High School receiver Andrew Scanlan received his first rating, being marked as a two-star recruit. Also, Wellston (OH) High School outside linebacker Jaylen Prater was rated as a two-star prospect.

Northwestern did not move in the Scout.com team rankings. The Wildcats remain as the nation's 38th-ranked recruiting class, and are ranked third in the Big Ten conference, only behind Ohio State and Michigan. NU moved up to that spot on Saturday, when four-star linebacker Ifeadi Odenigbo gave his verbal commitment to the Wildcats.

NU currently boasts claim to seven players ranked in the top-50 in their respective positions, including two ranked in the top-five. Odenigbo is Scout's fifth-ranked outside linebacker prospect, while Chris Fitzpatrick sits as Scout's second-ranked long snapper.

The new Scout 300 ranks Springfield, MO. Wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham as its top overall prospect, with Arik Armstead and Shaquille Thompson falling close behind. The highest rated Big Ten commit is five-star defensive end Noah Spence, rated as the fifth-ranked overall prospect. Spence is an Ohio State commitment.
