Northwestern did not move in the 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.

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.
