Coaches have been forced to get creative on the recruiting front. Without the ability to offer official and unofficial visits to campus or meet with prospects face to face, the game has changed a bit this offseason.

April was still a busy month for several B1G teams in recruiting, though. Several programs received a plethora of commitments, getting some momentum heading into the summer months. Others have continued to lag behind a bit and will likely do much more in the summer and fall months.

There’s still seven months between now and the Early Signing Period, but it’s still interesting to see how teams stack up as the summer approaches. The rankings below are based on 247Sports’ Composite Rankings:
