The Monday Morning Kickoff: RU vs Big Ten recruiting

With all the conference talk swirling at a rapid pace and the possibility of Rutgers joining the Big Ten some time in the future, recruiting could take on a different form for the Scarlet Knights. However, Rutgers has already been in its share of recruiting battles with Big Ten schools and recently netted some very good results.

Here's a look back at the past two recruiting classes and how Rutgers has matched up head to head with Big Ten schools. The following sections include prospects who were offered by both Rutgers and its Big Ten opponent.
