St. Johns drops out of team rankings
The Big East's loss is the Big Ten's gain. Ricardo Gathers' decommitment from St. John's has knocked the Red Storm out of the top 25, and Purdue has taken their place.
This change knocks the Big East down to six teams in the 2012 national team recruiting rankings, but it is still the most represented conference in the rankings.
The Big Ten is now the No. 2 conference with five representatives.
The ACC and Big 12 have four teams each in the rankings.
The Pac-12 and SEC both have two teams each in the rankings, and the Atlantic-10 and Conference-USA are represented by one team each.
