Since the last edition of the Rivals.com 2011 National Team Recruiting Rankings, the big change comes with the addition of top 10 prospect DeAndre Daniels to the Connecticut recruiting class. Daniels, who had one of the most dramatic and drawn-out recruitments in recent times, joins impact point guard recruit Ryan Boatright in the two-man class that ranks No. 17 nationally.
With the addition of Connecticut to the rankings, Villanova is pushed out of the rankings. The only other change is Washington's small slide up to No. 19 with the addition of former Maryland recruit and Rivals150 prospect Martin Breunig.
Looking at the rankings from a conference standpoint, the Big East leads the way with eight teams followed closely by the SEC with seven teams in the top 30 rankings. The ACC, the Big 12 and the Big Ten all tied for second by placing four teams each in the final team rankings. Rounding out the rankings is the Pac-12 which has three teams included in the group of 30 teams.
