SB Nation has a great way of communicating information in maps that immediately grabs your attention.

For one, Butler CC (JC – KS) won a state – Delaware, and the only time you see Alabama on this map is on the east coast because they signed Connecticut’s top prospect. You’ll also notice that Oregon, Penn State, Iowa, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Nebraska are the progrmas that locked up more than one state.
