Underrated recruiting classes
RecruitingNation hoops experts on who will outperform their class ranking
Much has been made of the stellar recruiting classes Kentucky, Kansas and even Memphis have brought in at the top of the 2013 class rankings. But a recruiting class, lest we forget, is only on paper and the players still have to go out and prove it on the court at the college level.
