The final 2007 Rivals.com basketball rankings are complete, and there are few changes with the list. And what a class this is.
With the role of the freshmen ever increased in college basketball, this class provides the game with a number of instant impact players.
Kansas State-bound forward Michael Beasley remains at the top after his MVP performance in the McDonald's All-American game and other postseason events. Indiana signee Eric Gordon remains at the second overall spot and has instant all-conference talent. Gordon's summer teammate Derrick Rose, who will play at Memphis next year, stays at the third position.
USC-bound guard O.J. Mayo made a slight move up to No. 4 overall with his strong showing in the second half of his senior season. Oregon will probably never see a 1-2 punch quite like Kyle Singler and Kevin Love, who check in at No. 5 and No. 6 respectively.
Bill Walker was a midseason addition at Kansas State and is considered a 2007 recruit. He kept his spot at No. 7 overall. Walker tore his ACL shortly into his freshman year.
New Texas A&M coach Mark Turgeon worked hard to keep the nation's ninth best player, DeAndre Jordan, in the Aggies' recruiting class. Future N.C. State guard J.J. Hickson cracks into the top 10 and gives Sidney Lowe his first headline recruit.
The five-star rankings extended to 28 players instead of 25. DePaul bound Nayal Koshwal (No. 18) and future Oklahoma forward Blake Griffin (No. 23) climbed into the top 25.
Moving from the 2008 class into the 2007 class is recent UNLV signee Beas Hamga, who earned a fifth star and checks in at No. 26.
After a stellar senior campaign for one of the best high school programs in the country, Corey Fisher jumped to No. 27 and solidified his status as one of the premiere point guards in the nation.
Fellow Villanova commitment Corey Stokes rounds out the five-star rankings as the No. 28 player in the ranking.
Rivals.com will unveil the updated 2007 team rankings later in the week.
