UNC on top of 2009 team recruiting rankings
With the all-important visit period beginning in full force this weekend, Rivals.com is getting an early jump on the 2009 team recruiting rankings.
With five commitments, North Carolina debuts at the top of the team rankings. Villanova is second, thanks to the addition of five-star forward Mouphtaou Yarou this week. Georgia Tech is third, and Illinois and North Carolina State round out the top five.
The initial rankings have just 15 teams. The visit period generally yields several commitments over the weekend, and the rankings will be adjusted to reflect the pledges. Each Wednesday this fall, we will update the team rankings and eventually expand the list.
