#4   Brandon Knight
#7   Enes Kanter
#11  Terence Jones
#26  Doron Lamb
#50  Stacy Poole

The 2nd highest total in RSCI history to date (UNC Class of 2006 was the highest with 429). Coach Cal picks up the top class in the nation for the second year in a row and has an early start on a 3-peat.

2) Memphis (298 pts)
#10 Will Barton
#16 Joe Jackson
#21 Jelan Kendrick
#59 Tarik Black
Chris Crawford

Josh Pastner pulled off an amazing haul in only his first full year of recruiting as a head coach picking up right where his predecessor, John Calipari, left off.

3) North Carolina (262 pts)
#1   Harrison Barnes
#15 Reggie Bullock
#25 Kendall Marshall

Roy Williams does it again with a group that is led by the nation’s top recruit (Barnes) plus a pair of top 25’s.

4) Ohio State (221 pts)
#2   Jared Sullinger
#17 DeShaun Thomas
#63 Jordan Sibert
Lenzelle Smith
Aaron Craft
J.D. Weatherspoon

The Buckeyes combine top shelf talent (Sullinger and Thomas) with a load quality players for the sort of blend that can pay big dividends down the road.

5) N.C. State (213 pts)
#12  C.J. Leslie
#22 Ryan Harrow
#56 Lorenzo Brown

Brown’s ranking would probably be higher had he not gotten a bit lost in the shuffle of going to prep school but the commitment of this crop, Sidney Lowe’s best, gave a huge shot in the arm to a program in need of one.

6) Texas (180 pts)
#9   Tristan Thompson
#13 Cory Joseph

What this group lacks in quantity it more than makes up for in quality. Longhorns fans will have plenty to cheer about even after football season is over.

7) Illinois (174 pts)
#24 Jereme Richmond
#29 Meyers Leonard
#76 Crandall Head

The Illini reload with the kind of talent that should make a serious dent in the Big 10.

#40 Jordan McRae
#86 Trae Golden

Harris is a big time talent who will impact early and often for the Vols.

Tyler Thornton

The defending national champs reload with the nation’s best high school PG and then some.
