UCLA on Top Over Two-Year Span

Most recruiting rankings cover just one class, but we combined the two classes of 2008 and 2009 to determine which programs have recruited the best in the Pac-10 conference and nationally over the last two years, and UCLA looks pretty good...

These statistics were compiled by the BRO Message Board poster, fenwayfrank, on the BRO Premium Hoops Message Board.

Most recruiting rankings measure recruiting one year at a time. 

With just a few weeks to go before the November signing period, here are the rankings of the last two years combined, covering the two recruiting classes of 2008 and 2009. 

We're basing these rankings, for lack of a better basis, on the star system, and clearly there are flaws.

That said, five points were attributed to every five star recruit and four to the four stars in the 2008 class (current college freshmen) and 2009 class (arriving nest fall).  These two classes will form the heart of most program's teams in the next few years.

The numbers are the total of five star and four star recruits, and the combined point total.

Obviously, with still a few weeks to before signing day, these rankings could change. 

But at this point UCLA is at the top of both the Pac-10 and national rankings in terms of combined
