2018 Winners

1) Duke (448 pts)
#1   R.J. Barrett
#2   Cameron Reddish
#4   Zion Williamson
#13 Tre Jones
#37 Joey Baker

Duke absolutely killed it bringing in the #1, #2 and #4 players in the nation, an unprecedented feat. The late addition of 2018 reclassifer, Joey Baker, kept them ahead of Kentucky in the final tally. 

2) Kentucky (411 pts)
#10 E.J. Montgomery
#12 Keldon Johnson
#14 Ashton Hagans
#23 Immanuel Quickley
#35 Tyler Herro

Kentucky had a late surge picking up Montgomery and Hagans in the Spring, after the latter decided to reclassify to 2018. If transfers counted, Reid Travis (two-time All Pac 12 player from Stanford) would surely have been enough to overtake even Duke's stellar class.

3) Oregon (272 pts)
#6   Bol Bol
#20 Louis King
#40 Will Richardson
#66 Miles Norris

This is rarefied air for the Ducks, who check in with the 3rd best class in the country. Bol Bol has freakish skills for a guy his size which will draw lots of attention to Eugene.

4) LSU (268 pts)
#18  Nazreon Reid
#26  Emmitt Williams
#33  Javonte Smart
#59  Darius Days

Like Oregon, LSU is another school not typically found in the top 5 of recruiting rankings but landing three top-30ish players will do that for you. 

5) Kansas (245 pts)
#8   Quentin Grimes
#20  Devon Dotson
#30  David McCormack
Silvio De Sousa

The Jayhawks come in strong with yet another top 5 finish. Quentin Grimes is well equipped to continue the line of great guards in Lawrence.
6) Vanderbilt (215 pts)
#10  Simisola Shittu
#15  Darius Garland
#63  Aaron Nesmith

Maybe the most shocking recruiting result comes from Vandy where they landed not one but two of the top 15 players.

7) UCLA (214 pts)
#24  Moses Brown
#38  Shareef O'Neal
#45  Jules Bernard
#83  David Singleton III
Tyger Campbell

Shaq's son brings big time name recognition to a very solid class.

8) North Carolina (209 pts)
#3   Nassir Little
#27  Coby White
#64  Rechon Black

The Heels benefitted mightily from the FBI fiasco at Miami, where many thought Nassir Little would end up. 

9) Villanova (183 pts)
#29  Jahvon Quinerly
#39  Cole Swider
#52  Brandon Slater

Defending champs reload with three top 50's, which should keep them in the hunt.

10) Texas (163 pts)
#41  Courtney Ramey
#44  Gerald LIddell
#55  Kamaka Hepa
Jaxson Hayes

No clear superstars here but lots of talent to build on in Austin with this group.
