Towards the end of the 2023-24 NCAA Basketball season, almost all of the top-tier prospects in the upcoming recruiting class had already committed to new homes. There were a couple of free agents, such as Bryson Tucker and Derik Queen, but they've since committed to Big Ten teams. Tucker is going to Indiana and Queen is now heading to Maryland.

However, after the conclusion of the season, many coaching changes occurred. The most important one was Andy Enfield leading USC for SMU, causing a domino effect. Eric Musselman left Arkansas to take the open Trojans job, while John Calipari left Kentucky to become the new HC for the Razorbacks. No team was more impacted than the Wildcats, who had four players in the top 30 before, which was the No. 2 class behind Duke at the time.

The reason why it's important to note is how many top-100 prospects were committed to those respective programs. Once the changes occurred, many players decided to de-commit. Since then, one of them (top-50 forward Isaiah Elohim) followed Musselman to USC. Another move that quietly happened was Cam Scott, a four-star shooting guard prospect, going from Texas to South Carolina. On Monday, two more decisions happened, with four-star forward Brody Kozlowski picking BYU, while 5-star wing Karter Knox followed Calipari over to Arkansas.

Currently, this leaves eight players ranked in the top 100 overall of 247sportsComposite without a home, including several five-star prospects. All of their recruitments are officially open, though some may ultimately follow their coaches at their new spot.

Here's a look at the top-100 prospects still out there and what the reported latest news is on their recruitments, including which new teams are in the mix.
