Big East Signing Day dream team

Signing Day Dream Teams: Big Ten | SEC | ACC | Big 12 | Pac-10
No Big East team cracked the national top 25 Rivals.com team recruiting rankings but that doesn't mean there weren't some top signees. Pitt finished with the top recruiting class in the conference and boasts the only two five-stars in Jonathan Baldwin and Lucas Nix.
The Panthers lead the way when it comes to members of the Big East Signing Day Dream Team (high school players only) and this class could help push Dave Wannstedt's team near the top of the Big East.
