There are a few changes of note in this update, most of which revolve around players changing their classification year.
Texas A&M commitment David Loubeau, a 6-foot-8 forward from Florida, is on course to graduate this school year instead of in the class of 2009. He checks in at No. 67 overall in the updated rankings.
Five ranked players previously classified as 2008 prospects sped up their academic progress and are now listed in the class of 2007 rankings. Because of that fact, four new players enter the class of 2008 Rivals150 along with Loubeau.
Thomas, a 6-foot-8 forward from St. Patrick (N.J.) High School, is No. 147. Veal, a bouncy 6-foot-7 forward from Savannah (Ga.) Johnson High School, is No. 148. Swopshire, a versatile 6-foot-7 wing from IMG Academy (Fla.), is No. 149. And Freddie Riley, a 6-foot-5 wing scorer from Ocala (Fla.) Vanguard High School rounds out the top 150.
Rivals.com will evaluate and adjust the rankings for the 2008 class towards the end of the basketball season.
