Class of 2007 enrolled team rankings
Dominique Sutton and Jamar Samuels enrolled at Kansas State at the semester break and helped boost the Wildcats back to the No. 2 overall position in the class of 2007 team recruiting rankings. Kansas State was at No. 4 in the preliminary enrolled team rankings for the 2007 class that were released in October.
The addition of Sutton, a four-star prospect from North Carolina, and Samuels, a three-star forward from the Washington D.C. area, give the Wildcats two more athletic wings in an already talented freshman class.
The two were AAU teammates of Michael Beasley, the top freshman in America, with the D.C. Assault program. Kansas State was previously ranked fourth overall prior to the additions of Sutton and Samuels.
Virginia Tech moved up from No. 28 in the 2007 team recruiting rankings to No. 20 overall. J.T. Thompson was not accounted for in the preseason team rankings. Many believed he would not join the team until January. However, he has played 16 games for the Hokies already this season.
Thompson's cousin, Dorenzo Hudson, is enrolled but not playing this season as he awaits clearance from the NCAA. Hudson, a Rivals150 player, and Thompson helped moved the Hokies up in the final enrolled rankings.
Four-star forward Augustus Gilchrist is enrolled at Maryland, but is not playing this season. He joined the team at the semester break.
Connecticut is awaiting word on the status of Nate Miles, a four-star wing from Ohio. He could join the team this year; he is awaiting approval from the NCAA. Even if Miles is ruled eligible, the Huskies would still remain outside of the top-30 in our enrolled rankings.
