Julius Randle is the top ranked prospect in Kentucky's recruiting class.
There simply hasn't been another recruiting class on paper that comes close to this Kentucky recruiting class. Six recruits are ranked No. 16 or higher in the 247Composite. Four are ranked in the top 10 with three of those being top five recruits. With eight recruits in tow, John Calipari is still has a shot at making No. 1 ranked Andrew Wiggins the ninth recruit in the class.
Duke is bringing in three valuable pieces to its future puzzle. 247Sports four-star prospect Matt Jones is a lethal shooter from behind the line. Five-star prospect Semi Ojeleye brings physicality and toughness to the forward position that Duke has recently been lacking. And top 10 prospect Jabari Parker carries high expectations as the jewel of the class.
The Kansas class is comprised of five top 100 prospects. Each prospect has an unique skill set. Wayne Selden is a physical and skilled perimeter player. Brannen Greene is a sharp shooter with length. Joel Embiid is a defensive force in the lane. Conner Frankamp might be the best shooter in the class. And Frank Mason is one of the toughest on the ball defenders in the class.
Arizona's three-man class is highlighted by a couple versatile and athletic five-star forwards. Randae Hollis-Jefferson is a quality ball handler and defender at 6-7. Aaron Gordon is right with Andrew Wiggins as the most athletic players in the 2013 class.
Indiana has a diverse six-man class. Five-star forward Noah Vonleh is the top prospect in the class. He is a tough rebounder who is also an inside scoring threat. Four-star wings Troy Williams and Stanford Robinson bring athleticism and energy to the court. Tom Crean is trying to add a seventh recruit in three-star combo guard Jaren Sina.
With several departures from the Memphis roster, the five top 100 recruits in the Memphis class will be counted upon heavily. Austin Nichols and Kuran Iverson highlight the class. A local product, Nichols is a skilled interior scorer while Iverson is know for his ball handling and playmaking abilities at 6-9.
LSU's five-man class is led by a trio of top 100 prospects. Five-star Jarell Martin has size, touch, range and athleticism for a big man. Jordan Mickey is also a post player with athleticism and a knack for blocking shots. Tim Quarterman is a three position perimeter player at 6-6.
A couple guards with toughness and complete games lead Louisville's recruiting class. Terry Rozier is one of the top guards in the country with his athleticism, scoring ability and playmaking capabilities. And junior college star has had a high level of success throughout his career.
6-8 forward Isaiah Hicks is built in the mold of other long, athletic and versatile big men who have had success at North Carolina. Kennedy Meeks adds great size and skill to the class while Nate Britt Jr. is expected to take some of the pressure off Marcus Paige at the point guard position.
Buzz Williams is bringing in a prototypical Marquette recruiting class based on toughness and athleticism. Guards Jajuan Johnson and Duane Wilson Jr. can put up points in bunches. Bruising forward Deonte Burton loves to imprint the game with his physicality and athleticism.
