The addition of the nation's second-ranked, and most versatile, player Kyle Anderson gives UCLA's class a huge bump. Speedy point guard Dominic Artis was one of the high risers in the rankings during the summer circuit.

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.

Reese's father, John, is now an assistant coach and Caruso's father, Mike, is an associate athletic director at A&M.
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.
In Smart, Travis Ford has landed the class of 2012's ultimate warrior. The aggressive and versatile combo guard has long teamed up and been successful with the sharp-shooting Forte. Murphy is a lengthy and skilled four who sits on the Rivals150 bubble and Wing is more of an unknown with a rep as a shooter.
Goodwin is only a one-man class at this point, but the five-star guard is as electric as they come when creating off of the dribble. Now that he's on the board in 2012, John Calipari and his staff have somebody to build their recruiting efforts around.
