Which NCAA Basketball programs had the highest recruiting classes for 2020?

By now coaches are finalizing their 2020 recruiting classes and moving on to rising seniors. We know where all but one 5 star recruit will go next NCAA Basketball season. Whether it be preparing for the G-League pathway program or receiving summer workout information from the game’s top coaches, top recruits have made their decision.

Add in the final 2020 rankings from recruiting platforms and we have all we need to rank each incoming class. The revised rankings caused a major shakeup that’s reserved for top performers in all-star games and showcases that would take place between April and May. For other schools, the addition of late rising seniors pushed some teams past heated in-conference rivals, causing a shift in previous predictions.

We’ll look into each power 5 conference detailing the haul of each conference leader. There are of course perennial recruiting leaders on this list, but the most important might be the team’s looking to crash the party.

Enjoy breaks downs of some of the nation’s best incoming ballplayers. There will be some names you’ll recognize and others you’ll be glad you learn before November.

We won’t get too deep into how transfers will affect each class this is all about the incoming freshman. However, transfers will be mentioned as a footnote including where they played last season and their last stat line. Their importance will not be understated and will garner their own article in the coming weeks.
