One trend in basketball recruiting calls for prospects to spend a year in prep school in order to improve their academic standing and/or enhance their stock as a reclassified prospect.
Suddenly, a new trend is beginning to take shape.
Prior to the 2006-2007 season, USC's Daniel Hackett and Kansas State's Bill Walker accelerated their academic process and entered school a year early.
This trend is starting to gain momentum, and a number of prospects have jumped from the 2008 class to the 2007 class in recent months. Beas Hamga and Angelo Johnson are two prospects who made the change prior to the last class of 2007 ranking. The six prospects below, however, made the change from the class of 2008 to the 2007 class over the summer. They will move into the Rivals.com enrolled 2007 rankings, which are coming soon.
