The Circuit has officially released player rankings for the class of 2022, 2023, 2024, and a 2025 player's to watch list. 

Our team at The Circuit has compiled a list of each recruiting class and put together the Top 20 recruiting classes going into the 2022-2023 College Basketball Season.  

Seeding for the Top 20 recruiting classes was based off the amount of stars each recruit received in our player rankings. 

Ex: 5-Star Recruit = 5 Points

Taking the number one spot is Duke, led by HC in waiting Jon Scheyer. The Blue Devils have four 5-Star recruits with Dereck Lively, Dariq Whitehead, Kyle Filipowski, and Mark Mitchell. 4-Star Jaden Schutt gives Duke an overall score of 24 points. 

Coming in at number two is The University of Arkansas, led by HC Eric Mussleman. The Razorbacks finish with a score of 19 points. 5-Star's Jordan Walsh and Nick Smith Jr bring 10 points, while 4-Star's Barry Dunning and Derrian Ford bring 8 points. 3-Star Joseph Pinion gives them 3 points for a total of 19 points. 

The number three recruiting class in the nation belongs to The University of Alabama. Head Coach Nate Oats did a great job over the spring/summer landing 5-Star's Rylan Griffen, Jaden Bradley, Brandon Miller, and 4-Star Noah Clowney for a total of 19 points.
