Biggest Winners?Sean Miller and Arizona are the biggest winners in 2012.
Miller reeled in three five-star prospects – Brandon Ashley, Kaleb Tarczewski and Grant Jerrett – plus scoring sensation and top 50 prospect Gabe York to make up the current top 2012 recruiting class.
Joining Ashley in the post is Tarczewski, a 7-foot center out of Southborough (Mass.) St. Mark's. The No. 8 prospect in the 2012 class, Tarczewski gives Arizona a legit shot blocker to man the post and a guy on the offensive end that can score it.
Arizona's first commitment – Jerrett – is no slouch either. He checked in at No. 23 in the post-July rankings and is a low post prospect that will help bolster Arizona's frontcourt immediately.
York, Scout.com's No. 42 prospect, is the top rated guard from California and he will complement the guard talent that the Wildcats picked up last year quite well, as he's a terrific scorer and all-around athlete.
Indiana is also one of the winners of the 2012 class.
Tom Crean has spent a considerable amount of time recruiting local targets and rebuilding Indiana's reputation. That hard work has paid off, as the Hoosiers rank No. 2 overall in the 2012 recruiting class rankings.
Four of the five Indiana commits are from high schools in the state of Indiana, while the other – Peter Jurkin – played for an Indiana based AAU program.
Perea is an elite athlete that will affect the game by running the floor and blocking shots. Ferrell is a scrappy lead guard that defends the ball well and scores it well off the dribble. Hollowell is a talented wing scorer with terrific size for his position.
After those three, the Hoosiers have 6-foot-3 guard Ron Patterson and Jurkin. Patterson defends the ball well and has developed into a good shooter off the catch. Jurkin will help provide depth in the post, as a shot blocking presence.
Best Frontcourt?Arizona's goal for their 2012 class was to add some firepower to their frontcourt.
Consider that mission accomplished.
The Wildcats have assembled the frontcourt of the future, locking up a trio of players ranked among the top 23 prospects in the country.
All three prospects will be asked to play early in their career and all three are capable of doing so.
Perhaps the beauty of the three post prospects the Wildcats have headed to Tucson (Ariz.) is they can each score.
Overall this is a group that could one day anchor a trip to the Final Four or possibly help Miller to his first National Championship.
Much like Texas, North Carolina's incoming post players are effective, but in different ways. Brice Johnson is a bouncy power forward that runs well, while James is a massive post player that rebounds and owns his area.
Best Backcourt?With Ed Cooley at the reins, Providence appears to be a legitimate threat to do damage on the court and on the recruiting trail.
Ledo and Dunn are the major gets, as each ranks among the top 30 prospects in the 2012 class. Ledo is one of the top overall scorers in the country, while Dunn is the No. 26 overall player and one of the most improved prospects of the class.
With Ledo and Dunn headed to Friar country it gives legitimacy to what Providence is trying to accomplish on the recruiting trail.
It shouldn't be a surprise to see Billy Donovan's school under the best backcourt tag.
The other two members of Florida's 2012 class are guards and both Michael Frazier, a top 100 prospect, and Dillon Graham, a three-star standout, are known for their ability to rip the nets from long range.
Reese, who ranks No. 53 overall, is a quick point guard that can not only create for teammates, but is also a talented scorer. Caruso, Scout.com's No. 75 prospect, is an athletic perimeter prospect with a high basketball IQ.
Best of the rest?Outside of the big six conferences, Houston, Memphis and Xavier have put together strong 2012 recruiting classes.
House ranks No. 27 overall, while Knowles checks in at No. 71 in the 2012 class. Valente Izundu, an athletic shot blocker, closes out their three-man class.
On Tuesday, Josh Pastner picked up a commitment from top 25 prospect – William "Shaq" Goodwin. He's an active and aggressive post prospect that should provide and immediate impact in the post.
Goodwin is Memphis' second top commitment. He joins the No. 91 prospect in the country Damien Wilson.
Much like Pastner, Chris Mack continued his success on the recruiting trail.
Christon is drawing rave reviews from Brewster Academy coach Jason Smith and is expected to have a terrific year at B.A.
