Kentucky has been the center of the basketball recruiting universe this fall. The minute they picked up commitments from top-five twins Andrew and Aaron Harrison, the Wildcats vaulted into the No. 1 spot in the class rankings. And that position was only strengthened when they followed up by landing elite recruits James Young and Marcus Lee.

So when the early signing period began one week ago, much attention was paid to the Wildcats and the unstoppable recruiting juggernaut John Calipari has built.

But Kentucky isn't the only school putting together an excellent recruiting class. So as the signing period comes to a close on Wednesday, we wanted to dig deeper and give credit to some of the excellent recruiting classes that might have gotten lost in the Wildcats' shadow. Our panel of RecruitingNation experts is on the case.
