    Bball Recruiting Verdict

    Conference-by-Conference team rankings - CBSSports

    Big Ten

    • 1. Indiana: The Hoosiers bring in a tremendous class that could push them to the preseason No. 1 ranking.
    • 2. Michigan State: Tom Izzo will love the versatility of this four-man group, led by five-star guard Gary Harris.
    • 3. Michigan: Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson Jr. should contribute immediately; Nik Stauskas is a sleeper.
    • 4. Purdue: The Boilermakers have a ton of talent in this class, but the quartet needs to bring effort on a nightly basis.
    • 5. Iowa: AAU teammates Adam Woodbury and Mike Gesell are both top-100 players in the class.
    • 6. Wisconsin: The Badgers have one of the best newcomers in the league, skilled forward Sam Dekker.
    • 7. Northwestern: Kale Abrahamson, Alex Olah and Sanjay Lumpkin should provide depth next season.
    • 8. Minnesota: The Golden Gophers picked up two solid newcomers in Charles Buggs and Wally Ellenson.
    • 9. Penn State: A couple of forwards out of Pennsylvania, Donovan Jack and Brandon Taylor, will contribute.
    • 10. Ohio State: Amedeo Della Valle is the Buckeyes' lone signee, but his versatility at the guard position is a plus.
    • 11. Nebraska: Since coming over from Colorado State, Tim Miles has done most of his damage with transfers.
    • 12. Illinois: The lone signee for the Fighting Illini, Michael Orris, decommitted after Bruce Weber was fired.

    Big 12

    • 1. Baylor: Scott Drew picked up another loaded class, led by forwards Isaiah Austin and Ricardo Gathers.
    • 2. Texas: Not surprisingly, Rick Barnes brought in a ton of talent. Cameron Ridley and Prince Ibeh are the prizes.
    • 3. Kansas: Despite no five-star prospects in the class, Bill Self has a very solid class. Perry Ellis will make an impact.
    • 4. Oklahoma State: Marcus Smart will be one of the best freshmen in the country next season.
    • 5. Texas Tech: Nine players arrive on campus next season. Look out for Wannah Bail and Trency Jackson.
    • 6. West Virginia: In their first year in the Big 12, Mountaineers need post production from Elijah Macon.
    • 7. Iowa State: The Cyclones beat everyone to the punch on Georges Niang, and three other solid players join him.
    • 8. Oklahoma: Buddy Hield had a strong past year, and former top-150 recruit Jarion Henry should make an impact.
    • 9. Kansas State: Bruce Weber brought along former Illinois signee Michael Orris, a solid point guard.
    • 10. TCU: Guard Clyde Smith comes all the way from Hotchkiss (Conn.); big man Aaron Durley is tough.

    How is Scott Drew not a convicted felon by now?

    That's a bit harsh. It's Bail.

    Could be worse. As an IT consultant, I mostly work on email systems, and I've seen all kinds of terrible names. The one that comes to mind right now is a poor girl whose parents named her Crystal. Crystal Ball.

    Jason Lee, the actor, named his son Pilot Inspector.

    Gwenyth Paltrow named her girl Apple.

    Sylvester Stallone named his kid Sage Moonblood.

    Frank Zappa names two of his kids, Moon Unit and Diva Thin Muffin.

    Jermaine Jackson named his child... Jermajesty.

    Wannah Bail could have it worse.

    I figured Wannah Bail would have gone to nebraska, missouri, or Tam

    Zappa named his son Dweezil.

    Was a good high school basketball player in southern Iowa who's last name was Dicks. Parents named her Fonda. True story.

    I remember well. Back in the early 70's during the 6-girl area. She could really score.

    No, really. The Register used to put the top scorers in HS basketball each morning. Our whole floor kept tabs because she made the list after almost every game.

    Re: Bball Recruiting Verdict

    These types of rankings are really worthless. Just as an example, both of ISU's guard commits have more impressive offer lists then Iowa's Gesell, yet he is considered a top 100 player.

    Tech is fitting, though, considering about 6 of their players transferred this offseason.

    You may be right, but he's not exactly the first guy that comes to mind, since he struggled recruiting top talent to Illinois.
