Top 25 National 2013 Recruiting Classes Update

With the book now closed on the year of 2012, including college basketball’s early signing period, it’s time to reshuffle our national recruiting class team rankings for the 2013 class. There’s certainly time and enough prospects on the board left to make a significant impact on the rankings going forward, but the listed schools have to be extremely pleased with their efforts thus far. Still, to no surprise the Kentucky Wildcats are on top, yet again, in what is becoming seemingly a yearly effort by coach John Calipari and his staff.

There’s also an interesting dynamic among highly ranked unsigned prospects, as a hearty six top-25 prospects remain on the board, in No. 1 small forward Andrew Wiggins, No. 5 power forward Julius Randle, No. 9 center Dakari Johnson, No. 17 shooting guard Keith Frazier and No. 23 power forward Jermaine Lawrence. Beyond that group though, the pickings are slim as only one member of our top 100 for the 2013 class unsigned, No. 49 point guard Rysheed Jordan.

As a recap, we have in-depth and complete listings of results from the early signing period, from the ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten, Pac 12, and SEC.
