With the recent flurry of high profile commitments -- and in some cases de-commitments -- it's time to take another look at our team recruiting rankings for the class of 2012. The change starts at the top as Sean Miller and Arizona have dislodged Tom Crean and Indiana.
Five-star center Kaleb Tarczewski's decision to attend Arizona over Kansas -- who checks in at No. 22 in the latest list -- has allowed the Wildcats to climb up from their previous position at No. 4. Along with the seven-foot Tarczewski, the Wildcats recruiting class is bolstered by five-star forward Brandon Ashley and top 50 prospects Gabe York and Grant Jerrett.
Also making major moves were a pair of programs from the state of North Carolina. Both Mark Gottfried's N.C. State and Roy Williams' North Carolina have catapulted into the top five of the team rankings. N.C. State's move can be attributed to its landing of a second five-star commitment in T.J. Warren. Meanwhile, the addition of top 50 player and four-star prospect Brice Johnson gives the Tar Heels a very balanced group even if it doesn't feature the five-star types that Carolina fans have grown accustomed to.
Another program making a nice move up the list is Texas. The addition of four-star center Prince Ibeh and three-star combo forward Ioannis Papapetrou allows the Longhorns to move up to the sixth position overall from their previous spot at No. 10.
The final major mover of the list is Kentucky. John Calipari made a big move to go into the state of Kansas and pull seven-footer Willie Cauley and the addition of the four-star big man enabled the Wildcats to move all the way up to tenth place from their previous spot in the 25th position.
The lone newcomer to the top 25 is Syracuse. The addition of homegrown -- and highly rated four-star -- big man Dajuan Coleman to a class that already included four-star forward Jerami Grant allowed Jim Boeheim's Orange to come from outside of the rankings and settle in at No. 12 nationally.
Sean Miller has found success on the court and in recruiting at Arizona. He has a trio of top 50 ranked post players who will give Arizona outstanding frontcourt depth. Ashley is a versatile athlete, Tarczewski is a true center at 7-feet and Jarrett is a skilled four man. Also a top 50 prospect, York is a potent perimeter scorer.
Indiana fans are ready for the recruiting success of Tom Crean to translate on the court, and this five-man class is expected to play a huge part in this potential turnaround. Every position is covered in this class with five-star prospects Hanner Perea and Kevin Ferrell leading the way.
The Pack scored a couple of major commitments when five-star prospects Purvis and Warren decided to stay home for school. Purvis is a physical, attacking combo guard who can score with the best of them. Warren is also a high scoring forward with a sweet shooting stroke. Lewis is as crafty as they come off the dribble and a fan favorite thanks to his flashy passing.
New head coach Ed Cooley is making quite the recruiting splash at Providence. He has the top backcourt in the country committed with Dunn and Ledo, and Fortune is one of the top shooters in the 2012 class.
Just like neighbor North Carolina State , Roy Williams has secured a strong backcourt. Tokoto is a high flying athlete who thrives in an open court game. Paige is a heady point guard with a solid all-around game. James is a big, back-to-the-basket guy who has been working hard to get in better shape. And the latest commitment comes from Johnson, who is a bouncy athlete with great potential.
Ridley, who has a lot of size and a lot of game, is a post player who can anchor the attack on both ends. Highly athletic, Ibeh is a great interior complement to Ridley. Lammert, a skilled four man, adds depth to the frontline. He also has a heady point guard in Felix who can get him the ball and keep the defense honest with his shooting ability. Papapetrou, who is a skilled wing, rounds out the class.
The addition of the nation's second-ranked, and most versatile, player Kyle Anderson gives UCLA's class a huge bump. Adams is one of the toughest perimeter players to defend in the 2012 class when he gets hot from the outside.
Head coach James Dickey and his staff made a huge splash by convincing the two local stars to stay local. House is a long, athletic wing with deep range and huge upside. Knowles is a slender big with quickness and face-up skills. Rounding out the class is Izundu, who is similar to Knowles but not as developed.
The star of Baylor's recruiting class is versatile and talented 7-footer Isaiah Austin. He is complemented on the outside by steady point guard L.J. Rose and Rykhoek is a big-bodied interior player with good hands.
John Beilein has a couple talented four-star wings in the recruiting fold. Robinson, III, the son of The Big Dog, has blossomed this summer into a terrific prospect. Stauskas is a versatile shooting guard with nice size for his position.
Mike Brey has a couple four-star recruits in the fold with Biedscheid and Auguste. Biedscheid is a versatile perimeter player with length and a high skill level. Auguste is a mobile and skilled big man who is hitting his stride. A lengthy shooter, Burgett rounds out the class.
Florida State is looking forward to adding the scoring abilities of reclassified four-star shooting guard Aaron Thomas. Brandon, a four-star perimeter player, is a versatile playmaker. Point guard Bookert and power forward Gilchrist round out the class.
Continuing the backcourt theme, Billy Donovan also has secured a four-star point guard and wing scorer. Ogbueze has a balanced skill package at the point, and Frazier is known for scoring points. Graham, a three-star prospect, is also a great shooter.
Billy Kennedy is off to a great start on the recruiting trail in his first year at A&M. With Reese and Caruso A&M adds a scoring combo guard and a smooth two who have significant ties to the school. Reese's father, John, is now an assistant coach and Caruso's father, Mike, is an associate athletic director at A&M.
Tony Bennett has secured a trio of ranked recruits with diverse games. Anderson is a big-time wing athlete. Tobey is a skilled post player with face-up game. And Nolte is a deadly outside shooter. Three-star point guard Jones is the fourth recruit.
A couple power forwards comprise Bill Self's 2012 recruiting class. On the national radar since his freshman year, Ellis is both a powerful and skilled forward. Peters plays a physical game down low and can step out and make shots.
Woodbury is a skilled big man who should find plenty of success in the Big Ten. Gesell is a steady guard who can play either the one or the two while Ingram is a physical defender who likes to hit corner jumpers. Meyer is a big with mobility and emerging skill.
Four-star post player Shaquille Cleare is a physical presence who should have a significant impact on the ACC. Layman is a talented combo forward with a smooth shooting stroke and upside. Allen, a shooting guard, rounds out the class.
