Tigers, Bruins move up in team rankings
The early signing period has closed, and only two schools made a move into the top 10 in the Rivals.com team rankings.
Memphis made the biggest jump, climbing from No. 17 to No. 4 thanks to the addition of Xavier Henry, the third-ranked player in the class of 2009. Henry, from Oklahoma City, is one of the elite scorers in the country and should be an instant impact player for the Tigers. Henry is the third national top-10 player to sign with Memphis in as many years, following Derrick Rose and Tyreke Evans.
UCLA landed Mike Moser, a former Arizona commitment, on Wednesday night. Moser, from Portland, is No. 83 nationally, and his addition moved the Bruins from No. 14 to No. 8 overall.
Oklahoma also moved up in the rankings thanks to the signing of Oak Hill Academy center Keith Gallon. He picked the Sooners on the final day of the signing period after also considering Mississippi State. Gallon, the No. 31 player in the class, helped Oklahoma climb from No. 18 to No. 11 in the team rankings.
Rivals.com will update the team rankings once a month throughout the high school season to reflect any changes. There are 18 top-150 players who haven't signed or committed.
