Jerry Meyer and his crew over at Rivals.com are the best in the business when it comes to the recruiting game and they recently released their updated rankings for the 2010 High School Basketball Class.
There were a few notable changes towards the top, with Brandon Knight surpassing Mr. Everything Harrison Barnes as the top rated recruit in the country.
Here is the rest of the top 10:
1. Brandon Knight
2. Harrison Barnes
3. Jarred Sullinger
4. Jelan Kendrick
5. Fabricio de Melo
6. Josh Smith
7. Josh Shelby
8. Reggie Bullock
9. Perry Jones
10. Will Barton
Check out the above link for the rest of the 150...
-Thad Matta continues to get it done on the recruiting trail and adding Sullinger is no surpise.
-Seeing Dominique Ferguson at 23 is a bit of a surprise. Everyone expected him to be a top 10 player, at least.
-C.J. Leslie at #34 is far from where he'll end up. Leslie is a high flying athlete and has the ability to slide into the top ten before its all said and done.
-There is a good chance that Calipari will land Brandon Knight, the #1 player in the country, and make the rest of the coaches in the country wonder if they will ever get another top PG as long as he's in the game.
