Now that the early signing period is off and running, here is a look at a few things that are standing out to us involving the 2012 class.

What program that has started slow are you expecting to finish strong?

Paul Biancardi: Duke only has one senior on the roster in Miles Plumlee, but the Blue Devils could easily lose another two or three players to the NBA draft if they have a good season. Coach Mike Krzyzewski already has dynamic scorer Rasheed Sulaimon (Houston/Strake Jesuit) in the fold but has a couple elite players in his sights and could end up finishing strong before the early signing period is over or decide to wait until the spring, when he has a better picture of the 2012 roster.
