MSU picks up it's first 2020 commit from in state OL Dallas Fincher, who is only 3*, but had offers from OSU, UM, Wisconsin, Iowa, etc..., so...  Granted since he didn't commit to one of those, he's locked in at 3*

UGA has three commits, all from the state, and all linemen.  I suspect they may pick up a few more as time goes on.  Their recruiting is not the problem.

Michigan snagged the Big Ten's best class in 2019 but has a loooooong way to go if it wants to duplicate that for 2020 and actually get a streak of those going. Both in commits (obviously) but also inroads.

He was supposed to visit Madison on President's day, but weather canceled the trip. He would at least have had something to thing about, but then again, UW already has 4 OL commits for 2020.

OSU has six deathly serious recruits, Hubbard as mentioned above along with:

Paris Johnson Jr.  - 5 star lineman out of Cincy
Jack Miller - 4 star QB out of Arizona
Luke Wypler - 4 star lineman out of NJ
Jake Wray - 4 star lineman out of Georgia
Lejond Cavazos - 4 star DB out of IMG Florida

Forgot this thread existed.  Buckeye changes: Hubbard, Wray, and Cavanos out.  
But add:
3 star OT Jakob James
4 star WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba
4 star WR Gee Scott

He was also an MSU legacy

Yep, I'm aware of that, but not in tune with who he's a legacy to. Father?

Yeah, his dad played for Perles in the 80s.

I mean, that's literally what the class was. And for the first time since Lloyd Carr, if I'm not mistaken. So it's not inaccurate, just embarrassing. To be clear though, it's not embarrassing because the graphic happened per se (any non-OSU AD would have been equally likely of their version of that graphic if in the same position). The embarrassing part is because it's further evidence that Michigan can no longer claim to be above the fray. If that class were MSU's or UMd's, we'd have their forms of silly public bragsauce instead of this one. Only at OSU, where the top class had been expected, was the response the dignified "cool but whatever" that people seem to have expected Michigan to have this year after pulling it off for the first time since forever. The reason that expectation fails is that Michigan and its fanbase lost its aloofness/pride around 2009 and will either never get it back or won't until after another full decade like the 70s, 80s or 90s.

Literally, according to who? We'll know in 3-4 years.

It's implied that we are talking about rankings. That's where I said literally works.

I'm thinking just about every coach in the conference thinks he has the best class. It's all very subjective.
