The closest available to this date a year ago was September 14, 2020.
Our class was ranked 23rd nationally at that point.
I feel certain we've never been ranked this low at this point in the year. And to not even have one four-star currently in mid-September (Illinois is the only other Big Ten school) is at the very least, very rare.
Not sure what to make of this class. Have watched film on most of them. I realize it is a small class this year, but given that, I would think we'd be very selective. Perhaps this group is viewed as a project group that will be developed. Covid year, losing and limited homes games over the past 2 years certainly doesn't help.
