With the early signing period of NCAA basketball recruiting complete, let’s take a dive into the top 25 classes to examine what they mean to their programs?
The 2019-20 NCAA basketball season might be underway, but the early signing period for recruiting took center stage over the past week. Many of the top players in the entire country officially put pen-to-paper with regard to making their collegiate intentions known moving forward. These recruits all represent the future of college basketball across the country as potential stars for their respective programs.
The early signing period culminates the end, but also just the beginning, of a long journey for some of the best young basketball players in the entire country and it is an exciting time for fans as well.
Now, though, with the early signing period complete, this article will take a dive into 247Sports team rankings for the 2020 class. Although I disagree with some of the rankings that their system compiles, this is the best way to avoid the unconscious bias that would occur if I made my own rankings without a computer system. Additionally, the point of this article is to analyze each top class and the commits that the programs have landed. What will each future newcomer bring to their respective program?
Considering there are still 17 uncommitted top-100 prospects in the country, there are bound to be several shifts in these rankings over the next few months before next season. Yet, the classes in this piece still deserve recognition as each coaching staff has been impressive in their early efforts to land these commits/signees.
Now, without further introduction, let’s dive into this breakdown.
Honorable Mention (26-35 on 247Sports): Indiana, Georgia, Michigan, Florida, UNLV, Michigan State, Miami (FL), Gonzaga, Texas A&M, and Clemson.
