#BlueChipBattles: Top 5 of 2015
Elite bigs, talented wing could transform program into a title contender
We released our ESPN 60 player rankings yesterday, highlighting the top rising juniors in the nation. With only one player, Marquette pledge Nick Noskowiak, currently committed, we're expecting a multitude of intense recruiting battles over the summer and leading up to the late signing period between college hoops blue bloods for the best talent on the list.
While it's still very early, we've compiled a list of five battles we think will be the fiercest in the 2015 class. Mirroring the top of our rankings, big men dominate the list, which includes just one true perimeter player. Check out our list then tweet us using #BlueChipBattles to offer your picks for the biggest battles in the class.
Here's a look at our panel of experts: Dave Telep (@DaveTelep), Paul Biancardi (@PaulBiancardi), Reggie Rankin (@ReggieRankin), Adam Finkelstein (@FinkelsteinNERR), Joel Francisco (@JoelFranESPN), John Stovall (@john_stovall) and Michael LaPlante (@hoopsconnection).
