2013 Winners

1) Kentucky (557 pts)

#2 Julius Randle

#5 Andrew Harrison

#6 Aaron Harrions

#9 Dakari Johnson

#9 James Young

#18 Marcus Lee

Derek Willis

UK blew through the previous RSCI record of 429 pts set by UNC in 2006 with what is without question the most talented and deepest recruiting class in RSCI's 16 year history. With 6 McDonald's All Americans (4 was the previous record), it would be hard to argue against this as the best class ever.

2) Kansas (411 pts)

#1 Andrew Wiggins

#13 Wayne Selden

#16 Joel Embiid

#36 Brannen Greene

#40 Conner Frankamp

#89 Frank Mason

Almost any other year this group of Jayhawks would win running away, but this isn't any other year. Still, getting a once in a decade talent like Wiggins to go along with this quality is nothing short of amazing.

3) Memphis (237 pts)

#20 Austin Nichols

#30 Kuran Iverson

#40 Nick King

#81 Markel Crawford

#97 RaShawn Powell

This is another class that is strong enough to lead the nation in many years. Tiger fans have to be thrilled with the quantity of talent that will be coming in for 2013-14.

4) Duke (234 pts)

#3 Jabari Parker

#32 Semi Ojeleye

#34 Matt Jones

Parker was everyone's #1 as a rising senior but then Andrew Wiggins reclassified and Julius Randle closed the gap. Still, Parker has all the tools to dominate at the next level, although, he may not need to given the support cast in Durham.

5) Indiana (213 pts)

#8 Noah Vonleh

#51 Troy Williams

#61 Stanford Robinson

#71 Luke Fischer

Devin Davis

Vonleh's decision to reclassify for the 2013 class bumped up the star power for this group substantially.

6) Florida (184 pts)

#7 Chris Walker

#11 Kasey Hill

The Gators will bring what is essentially a pair of top 10's. Walker is a freakish athlete and Hill will endeavor to make sure he gets his hands on the ball enough to showcase those skills.

7) Arizona (182 pts)

#4 Aaron Gordon

#16 Rondae Hollis-Jefferson

Elliott Pitts

Gordon is a dunking machine who reminds many of a young Blake Griffin.

8) LSU (179 pts)

#12 Jarrell Martin

#38 Jordan Mickey

#74 Tim Quarterman

Brian Bridgewater

This is a huge haul for the Bayou Bengals who will look to feature Martin, who is a top shelf talent.

9) Marquette (160 pts)

#30 JaJuan Johnson

#54 Deonte Burton

#59 Duane Wilson

Coach Buzz Williams struck gold with this group, which should feed the transformation process he is engineering.

10) Syracuse (142 pts)

#23 Tyler Ennis

#37 Tyler Roberson

B.J. Johnson

The Orange will enter the ACC with a pair of Tylers to restock the shelves.

  • North Carolina (140 pts)

  • Michigan (129 pts)

  • NC State (116 pts)
