Class of 2016: Final Top 10 Class Rankings

As a reminder, the Hoopniks recruiting class rankings are based on the following criteria:
1) Overall talent
2) Average talent of each player in the class
3) Fit of the class with the projected returning players
4) Positional diversity, i.e. it is better to have players in a variety of positions; a class of a center, forward and guard will score higher than a class with three guards.

The class rankings include players with eligibility to play next year, and junior college transfers are counted but four-year college transfers are not included.
