The Big Ten has 25 ESPN 300 commitments from 13 different states in the 2018 class. The most commitments in the conference, surprisingly, come from Georgia, with five commitments hailing from the Peach State. There are only 15 ESPN 300 Georgia prospects committed, so the Big Ten holds 33 percent of the commitments in the state, including two of the top five prospects. Pennsylvania is represented with four commitments, Florida and California with three and Virginia with two. The conference has been very successful recently with casting a wide geographic net in recruiting and it shows by these numbers.
