Here are the links to each of the “Ferentz on” recruiting thumbnails. Sorry, there wasn’t more Ferentz in the “Ferentz on,” but we only had the 20 or so minutes because of a Big Ten Network interview. It was different last year. Would’ve liked some more insight, but I challenged the BTN to a duel and never heard back. (Kidding, I enjoy the BTN. I’d enjoy it more if it the HD channel on my DirectTV worked. Dreading making that call.)
Marcus Coker — Big RB.
Carl Davis — Big DT.
A.J. Derby — System-changing QB?
Andrew Donnal — OT potential.
Anthony Ferguson Jr. — Penn State wanted this big DT. I think he’s one of the more underrated recruits.
C.J. Fiedorowicz – Let’s just say he left the Illini in the rearview with no regrets.
Austin Gray — A middle linebacker with a neck wider than most peoples’ thighs.
Mike Hardy — Another underrated prospect, IMO. I think he ends up a DT or OG.
Anthony Hitchens — Three safeties in this class. I think Hitchens is the strong safety in the group.
De’Andre Johnson – Where would his recruiting have gone if not for the torn ACL his senior year?
Donavan Johnson — Could be a DT, DE or OG. Watch the Rivals video if you can. Great quickness, power.
Christian Kirksey – I think he redshirts. Upside is, maybe, a Jeremiha Hunter-type weakside ‘backer.
B.J. Lowery — Love everything I’ve read on this kid.
Kevonte Martin-Manley — The only WR this season. I think that’s telling.
Tanner Miller — Colleague Scott Dochterman calls him “mini-Mike Humpal.” I think that’s good.
James Morris — Quintessential Hawkeye.
Brandon Scherff — Big, athletic kid. Build the body, toughness, might really have an inside force here.
Don Shumpert — With a little refinement, I think Shumpert could cover a lot of ground at FS.
Louis Trinca-Pasat — I think he’s a future D-end. Love that he played some WR in high school. Must have wheels.
Austin Vier — Lots of talk on where Vier ends up. At 6-7, 230-ish, he’s an extremely interesting prospect.
But the Big Ten Network does make video available through embed.
So, here’s a little more Ferentz.
