P.J. Fleck is the toughest to rank, but not simply because he's a first-year Big Ten coach. The man was an elite—yes, one of his many buzzwords—recruiter in the MAC.
While at Western Michigan, Fleck completely and utterly dominated the conference on the trail. In 2014 and 2016, the Broncos signed nearly twice as many 3-stars than any other MAC team. They ranked No. 1 in the conference from 2014-2016.
His visible passion for football is unmatched by any other coach in the spotlight, but the popular question heading into his debut at Minnesota is whether that "shtick" will work in the Big Ten.
After taking Western Michigan from 1-11 to the Cotton Bowl within three years because of top-notch recruiting, though, it's inarguable Fleck has earned the chance.
With a Big Ten brand behind him, Fleck's recruiting should start to earn the national attention it deserves.
This seems a little premature considering the lack of B1G recruiting data on PJ and that we're kinda not at #5 in recruiting (yet).
