    Beyond the Big Board

    Last week, InterMat released our 2021 recruiting class rankings and a big ingredient used to tabulate those rankings were MatScouts' Senior Big Board. A factor we used when weighing a certain team's recruiting class against another was how many ‘Big Boarders” each respective team signed. Then we broke it down to, top-50, top100, etc.

    Once the recruiting class rankings were finished we decided to have some fun with the Big Board and look at other factors. How many did each state have? How many high schools had multiple Big Board members? Did anyone from the Big Board sign at a non-DI school? What about conferences, surely the Big Ten had to sign the most Big Boarder's...right? We have all of those answers and more below:
