ESPN.com: Class of 2012 Team Basketball Recruiting Rankings

As you delve into the ESPN class rankings, it’s important to keep in mind that the landscape of the Class of 2012 is dynamic. Indiana built a tremendous recruiting class and did so by virtue of a bevy of early commitments. The challenge for the Hoosiers is to hold off the blue bloods of college basketball as the elite take official visits and make decisions.

Like the Hoosiers, Jay Wright used early commitments to lay the foundation for Villanova’s exceptional class. In a perfect world, the Wildcats score another commitment and further bolster their case for the nation’s top class. In their rear view mirror are the three-time recruiting champions, Kentucky. At some point, the Wildcats, UNC, Duke and Arizona may force a shake up at the top but nothing is certain. It’s recruiting and it’s constantly changing.
