Early look: 2014 team recruiting class rankings

With only a handful of impact players remaining in the 2013 recruiting class, many men’s college basketball programs are rightly turning their attention to the 2014 class. Several teams have already made an impact, landing one or more verbal commitments from the prospects in the class, which, depending on need, can either be a building block or the majority of the incoming talent for two seasons from now.

This list will undoubtedly change greatly in the next few months, but as it stands now it is extremely impressive the way current and future ACC members have already started their hauls. Only No. 3 Kentucky, No. 4 Ohio State and No. 6 Arizona are programs that won’t be in the ACC when these players hit college.

The 2014 class has be highly decimated by prospects that reclassified to 2013, but there is still plenty of talent at the top. Only two top-10 talents have committed, as Syracuse holds a pledge from No. 7 Chris McCullough, while Kentucky’s sole pledge is 6-10 Karl Towns Jr., who reclassified from the 2015 class, in which he was the No. 1 ranked prospect overall.
