Big Ten Football Recruiting: 11 Best Prospects Committed For 2016 (And 3 Stars Who Might Commit Tomorrow)

National Signing Day is less than 24 hours away, which means Big 10 football programs are furiously trying to piece together their final pitches in hopes of bolstering their 2016 recruiting classes with the top uncommitted recruits. We're here to look at who's already the cream of the crop in the conference and who could be coming to the Big 10 on Wednesday. These players are based on's rankings, so a big tip of the hat to them. With that in mind, here are the 11 Best Big Ten Prospects Committed For 2016 (And 3 Stars Who Might Commit Tomorrow).

Top 11 Committed Recruits Right Now

11. Jonathon Cooper, DE, Ohio State
Cooper would be the top DE for Ohio State, but someone much higher on this list outranks him. He's a four-star recruit and the No. 78 overall player in the nation. He's going to wreak havoc on Big Ten offenses.

10. Lamar Jackson, S, Nebraska
Jackson is the newest commit on this list, making his pledge today. The four-star safety committed to Nebraska and immediately became their biggest addition. He's the No. 1 safety in the class and the No. 14 player from California. 

9. Jake Hausmann, TE, Ohio State
Hausmann checks in as the No. 71 overall player and the No. 3 player from the state of Ohio. He's the fourth-best TE and could play early for the Buckeyes. 

8. Demario McCall, RB, Ohio State
The No. 66 overall recruit and No. 2 all-purpose back in the class, McCall uses his lack of size to his advantage; burning through and around defenders while cutting and changing directions on a dime. Check out the Chat Sports Android and iPhone app for more on the Big Ten. 

7. Terrance Davis, OG, Maryland
Davis is the No. 64 player in the Class of 2016 and the fourth best guard. A four-star recruit, he's the second best player in Maryland and an absolute beast in the trenches. 

6. Donnie Corley, WR, Michigan State
Corley is the No. 61 overall player and the No. 12 WR in this year's class. The four-star recruit has already signed his letter of intent. 

5. Ben Bredeson, OT, Michigan
Bredeson is a beast at 6-foot-5, 293 pounds. He's almost impossible to move when he sets his feet, and that'll only be more apparent when he begins his weight-lifting program in Ann Arbor. He comes in as the No. 60 overall player and No. 5 offensive tackle in the nation. More from the Big Ten football recruiting news inside the Chat Sports iPhone and Android app

4. Josh King, DE, Michigan State
The Spartans' top recruit is also the best player from the state of Illinois. He's the No. 55 overall player and the No. 6 strong-side DE. He could be the next great Michigan State defensive lineman.

3. Miles Saunders, RB, Penn State
Saunders is the only Penn State recruit to make the list. A four-star recruit, Saunders is the No. 1 recruit from Pennsylvania. He's the No. 39 overall player and No. 1 RB. . 

2. Keandre Jones, LB, Ohio State
Jones committed on Jan. 15th, making him a fairly recent addition when OSU flipped him from Maryland. He's the No. 30 overall player in the class and the top player from the state of Maryland. A five-star recruit, he's the No. 6 LB and could make an early impact. 

1. Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State
Buckeye fans know that last name well, as Nick is the younger brother of star OSU DE Joey Bosa. The younger Bosa is a five-star recruit and the No. 2 DE in the nation. He's the #21 overall recruit and the prize of Ohio State's class. 

3 Top Recruits Big 10 Schools Can Still Sign

3. TE Devin Asiasi
The nation's No. 2 TE might just end up at Michigan. It seemed like USC, UCLA or even Alabama would land Asiasi, but Michigan has come on strong at the end. He's the No. 46 overall player and would be a huge additon. For more Big Ten recruiting news and rumors, download the Chat Sports Android and iPhone app

2. ATH Mecole Hardman Jr.
Hardman can do it all; on the first day of practice for the All-American Bowl, he torched cornerbacks over and over while playing at receiver. He moved on to playing more cornerback on Monday, and also is an electric kick returner. It was basically a UGA/Alabama showdown for the No. 11 overall prospect, and then Ohio State came in the picture. It's a long shot, but the Buckeyes could land Hardman. 

1. DT Rashan Gary
Gary being here shouldn't be surprise. He's the nation's top player and the Michigan Wolverines are in great position to land him. Clemson is still in the mix, but the Wolverines are the favorites. His former coach, Chris Partiridge, is the new director of recruiting operations and former teammates Jabrill Peppers and Juwann Bushell-Beatty are already in Ann Arbor. Michigan's class is already very good, but adding the top overall recruit in the country could help five them the No. 1 class.
