Class of 2014 Team Rankings
1. Duke
2014 commits (National rank)
C Jahlil Okafor (No. 1)
PG Tyus Jones (No. 7)
SF Justise Winslow (No. 12)
SG Grayson Allen (No. 29)
The Blue Devils lose a lot from their 2013-14 team but they sure are gaining a lot. Okafor is the top player in the land and the big time post presence they need to help open space for their shooters. Jones strength is getting others involved while both Winslow and Allen are athletes who will help improve their defense.
2. Kentucky
2014 commits (National rank)
C Karl-Anthony Towns (No. 5)
PF Trey Lyles (No. 13)
PG Tyler Ulis (No. 21)
SG Devin Booker (No. 29)
During his senior year, Towns took big leaps. He started playing more in the post and he and Lyles will add even more skill and size to an already loaded front line. Ulis lacks great size, but he has proven himself time and time again against top competition. Booker should help stretch defenses.
3. Kansas
2014 commits (National rank)
PF Cliff Alexander (No. 4)
SG Kelly Oubre (No. 6)
SG Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (NR 5-star)
PG Devonte Graham (No. 36)
Thanks to the addition of two late spring signees, Bill Self and the Jayhawks have another great class on the way. Five-stars Alexander and Oubre signed early and they welcome the arrival of five-star Mykhailuk a five-star prospect from Eastern Europe who won't turn 18 until after his freshman year. Graham is a point with good size who flew up the charts during his prep school year.
4. Arizona
2014 commits (National rank)
SF Stanley Johnson (No. 3)
PF Craig Victor (No. 40)
PG Parker Jackson-Cartwright (No. 51)
SG Kadeem Allen (JC 4-star)
C Dusan Ristic (NR 4-star)
The Wildcats have landed a true difference maker in Johnson. He scores, he rebounds, he plays with physicality and most of all he wins. Victor is a hard working four man who scores from 15 feet and in and goes to the free throw line. Jackson-Cartwright has tons of heart and leadership but will need strength. Allen had a big time year in junior college and Ristic is a Euro big man who adds interior depth and skill.
2014 commits (National rank)
SG Rashad Vaughn (No. 8)
SF Dwayne Morgan (No. 15)
C Goodluck Okonoboh (No. 31)
SG Patrick McCaw (NR 3-star)
SG Jordan Cornish (NR 3-star)
The Running Rebels have a class with star potential. Vaughn is a big time wing scorer with a college ready body while Morgan is long and versatile. Okonoboh is an elite shot blocker, McCaw can make shots and was a nice spring pickup while Cornish is a strong wing who chose the Rebels after opting out of his scholarship to Tennessee.
6. North Carolina
2014 commits (National rank)
SF Justin Jackson (No. 11)
SF Theo Pinson (No. 17)
PG Joel Berry (No. 27)
Roy Williams isn't playing around with this highly regarded crew. Jackson is a forward with savvy and the size and skill to play either the three or four in college while Pinson is a big time athlete and future defensive ace. Berry is a solid and steady leader at the point.
7. Louisville
2014 commits (National rank)
SF Shaqquan Aaron (No. 30)
PG Quentin Snider (No. 33)
PF Jaylen Johnson (No. 54)
C Chinanu Onuaku (No. 74)
C Matz Stockman (NR 4-star)
C Anas Osama Mahmoud (NR 3-star)
In Aaron, the Cardinals have the type of long and versatile wing capable of playing all over the floor that Rick Pitino covets. Snider is a playmaker for others that can score and they are adding a ton of size to go along with that duo.
2014 commits (National rank)
PF Kevon Looney (No. 10)
PF Jonah Bolden (No. 32)
C Thomas Welsh (No. 41)
PF Gyorgy Goloman (NR 3-star)
The Bruins have really put together a nice class. Looney is a strong rebounder who has a balanced scoring game. Bolden is athletic with lots of upside while Welsh has tremendous size and passing ability. Goloman adds even more interior depth.
9. Georgetown
2014 commits (National rank)
PF Isaac Copeland (No. 23)
PF Paul White (No. 50)
SF L.J. Peak (No. 68)
PG Tre Campbell (No. 127)
PF Trey Mourning (NR 3-star)
In Copeland and White, the Hoyas have a pair of lengthy and interchangeable combo forwards with skill and versatility. Peak is a hard-nosed wing that will be a tough defender and Campbell is a pass first floor general. Mourning is the son of Hoya legend Alonzo Mourning and made huge strides on the offensive end as a senior.
10. Florida
2014 commits (National rank)
SF Devin Robinson (No. 20)
SG Brandone Francis (No. 35)
PG Chris Chiozza (No. 42)
Billy Donovan and the Gators keep bringing talent down to the swamp. Robinson is a tall wing with a smooth jumper while Francis is a tough as nails guard. Chiozza is a flashy playmaker.
11. Ohio State
2014 commits (National rank)
SG D'Angelo Russell (No. 18)
SF Keita Bates-Diop (No. 26)
SF Jae'Sean Tate (No. 79)
PF David Bell (NR 3-star)
Thad Matta and the Buckeyes have landed a mercurial scorer who has gotten stronger in Russell. Bates-Diop is a smooth forward who can play as a big three or a stretch four while Tate is a beastly small forward who loves physical contact. Bell is a long-term guy with athleticism.
12. Maryland
2014 commits (National rank)
SG Romelo Trimble (No. 39)
SG Dion Wiley (No. 55)
SF Jared Nickens (No. 106)
C Michal Cekovsky (NR 4-star)
The Terps are building nicely for their move to the Big Ten. Trimble is a tough and proven winner who makes shots while Wiley is a big and strong wing with deep range. Nickens can stretch the nets from deep while Cekovsky is a nice late addition and adds size and skill to their front line. The class suffered a blow when Trayvon Reed wasn't admitted to school.
13. Seton Hall
2014 commits (National rank)
SG Isaiah Whitehead (No. 16)
PF Angel Delgado (No. 53)
SG Khadeen Carrington (No. 128)
SF Ismael Sanogo (NR 3-star)
PF Desi Rodriguez (NR 3-star)
PF Mike Nzei (NR 3-star)
The Pirates pulled off one of the biggest surprises of the year by landing NYC scoring machine Whitehead. Delgado is a rugged rebounder and interior scorer while Carrington is a volume scorer on the wing and Sanogo is a nice utility athlete. Rodriguez is slightly undersized but plays with athleticism and ferocity while Nzei is another tail-kicking rebounder.
14. Xavier
2014 commits (National rank)
SG Trevon Bluiett (No. 34)
PF Makinde London (No. 83)
SG J.P. Macura (No. 105)
PG Larry Austin (No. 117)
C Sean O'mara (No. 139)
PG Edmond Sumner (NR 3-star)
Chris Mack and his staff are going to enjoy watching Bluiett use his pretty jumper to score a boatload of points in Cincy. London is an athletic four man who can move his feet while Macura is a noted sharp shooter from deep. Sumner is a skinny combo guard while O'Mara will be bulked up into a grinding big man. Austin is a top notch defender who backed out of his commitment to Tennessee in the spring.
15. Oregon
2014 commits (National rank)
SG Jaquan Lyle (No. 22)
SF Dwayne Benjamin (JC 4-star)
C Michael Chandler (JC 4-star)
PG Ahmaad Rorie (No. 116)
PG Casey Benson (NR 3-star)
A former junior college coach, Dana Altman has never shied away from JC kids and he has two of the best. Benjamin is a high flyer while Chandler was a top 50 player coming out of high school. Benson could end up playing more at the two because of his shooting. The late addition of the five-star Lyle, a versatile playmaker, is huge and on top of that they were able to add a Rivals150 floor general in Rorie when he sought a release from Pac-12 foe Cal. The Ducks lost frontcourt player Ray Kasongo who was denied admission.
16. Stanford
2014 commits (National rank)
PF Reid Travis (No. 44)
C Michael Humphrey (No. 47)
PG Robert Cartwright (No. 82)
SG Dorian Pickens (No. 137)
The Cardinal have a nice looking group headed to The Farm. Travis is an animalistic rebounder and competitor while Humphrey is a long and athletic big who can shoot. Cartwright is a true floor general who delivers the ball with accuracy and has scoring ability.
17. San Diego State
2014 commits (National rank)
SF Malik Pope (NR 5-star)
SF Zylan Cheatham (No. 78)
SG Trey Kell (No. 118)
PG Kevin Zabo (NR 3-star)
Because of his size, athleticism and smooth scoring Pope could end up a major steal if he can fully recover from breaking his leg twice in seven months. Cheatham is a freaky athlete who can play multiple positions while Kell is a big time shooter who could be underrated. The hope is Zabo is the answer at the point but he may be more suited for the two.
18. Providence
2014 commits (National rank)
C Paschal Chukwu (No. 61)
SG Jared Terrell (No. 62)
SF Jalen Lindsey (No. 69)
PF Ben Bentil (no. 89)
PG Kyron Cartwright (NR 3-star)
Ed Cooley and his staff have earned reputations as some of the hardest workers on the recruiting trail. Chukwu is raw but has legit seven-foot size, pretty good hands and is a true shot rejector. Lindsey is a high-flying wing while Bentil is a power forward that can put it on the floor and score it but sometimes settles for jumpers. The Friars got a late gift when Terrell got cold feet and decided to stay closer to home instead of heading to Oklahoma State.
19. Indiana
2014 commits (National rank)
SG James Blackmon (No. 21)
SG Robert Johnson (No. 48)
SF Max Hoetzel (NR 3-star)
C Jeremiah April (NR 3-star)
PF Tim Priller (NR)
The recruitment of Blackmon was one of the most wild in the 2014 class. The homegrown five-star committed before playing a high school game, de-committed right before his senior year and then ended up back with the Hoosiers. Blackmon is a big time shooter and Johnson can fill it from deep as well. Hoetzel is a late-blooming Californian with a rep as a shooter. April is a big man with size that the Hoosiers hope to mold into a Big Ten contributor.
20. Texas
2014 commits (National rank)
Myles Turner (No. 9)
Jordan Barnett (No. 70)
Rick Barnes and his staff were rewarded for their patience when Turner decided to stay in state for college. A five-star with great size and skill, he could be a difference maker. Barnett is a big time athlete and was one of the most improved wings in the class of 2014 as a senior.
2014 commits (National rank)
PF JaKeenan Gant (No. 52)
SG Namon Wright (No. 73)
SF Montaque Gill-Caesar (NR 4-star)
SF D'Angelo Allen (NR 3-star)
PG Tramaine Isabell (NR 3-star)
New head coach Kim Anderson did a great job of making sure Gant and Wright stayed in the fold. Gant is an athletic big who can run the floor and could remind Tigers fans of Laurence Bowers. Wright is a high scoring guard with confidence. The class got a late boost when tough man wing Gill-Caesar reclassified from the class of 2015, and Allen is a long term pickup who projects as a defender and transition finisher.
22. N.C. State
2014 commits (National rank)
PF Abdul-Malik Abu (No. 45)
SF Caleb Martin (No. 60)
SF Cody Martin (No. 81)
The Pack and head coach Mark Gottfried worked hard to land the punishing Abu who is a physical rebounder and developing scorer. The Martin twins are wings with good size and nicely balanced inside/out games who don't seem to get too high or too low.
23. USC
2014 commits (National rank)
PG Jordan McLaughlin (No. 49)
SG Elijah Stewart (No. 64)
PF Malik Price-Martin (No. 109)
C Jabari Craig (NR 3-star)
SF Malik Marquetti (NR 3-star)
The Trojans scored a big win in getting the high scoring McLaughlin to sign on and stay close to home. Price-Martin can rebound, has some touch around the rim and needs weight. Marquetti had a huge senior year earning many admirers on the West Coast. After originally signing with LMU, Stewart had a monster senior season and has loads of upside.
24. Syracuse
2014 commits (National rank)
PF Chris McCullough (No. 19)
PG Kaleb Joseph (No. 46)
With his length, athleticism and natural instincts, McCullough seems born to play on the bottom of the Orange's 2-3 zone. If he can find consistency and bulk up then he has the tools to outplay his ranking. Joseph is the big and physical point guard that The Orange has done so well with over the years.
25. Vanderbilt
2014 commits (National rank)
PG Shelton Mitchell (No. 76)
SG Wade Baldwin (No. 100)
SG Matthew Fisher-Davis (No. 115)
PG Riley LaChance (No. 148)
SF Jeff Roberson (NR 3-star)
Kevin Stallings told his staff to go find him some shooters and perimeter firepower and that's what they did. Baldwin is a big time defender and a slashing combo guard while both Fisher-Davis and LaChance can really shoot the ball from distance. Roberson is a nice utility athlete who can defend. The 'Dores landed their highest rated prospect when they were able to obtain Mitchell after the coaching change at Wake Forest.
26. Michigan
2014 commits (National rank)
SF Kameron Chatman (No. 25)
PF D.J. Wilson (No. 86)
PF Ricky Doyle (NR 3-star)
SG Austin Hatch (NR 3-star)
G Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman (NR 3-star)
SG Aubrey Dawkins (NR 3-star)
The Wolverines value skill and versatility and Chatman has loads of it. The southpaw wing is lengthy, can handle and plays a complete game. Wilson is a four man capable of stretching defenses while Doyle is a hard working and physical big man.
27. Oklahoma State
2014 commits (National rank)
PF Mitchell Solomon (No. 77)
SF Joe Burton (No. 89)
PG Jeff Newberry (JC 3-star)
PG Tyree Griffin (NR 3-star)
SF Tavarius Shine (NR 3-star)
C Anthony Allen (JC NR)
If things don't work out on the hardwood for Terrell, the athletically gifted and physically built off guard could easily switch to the Cowboys football team. Solomon is a skilled, homegrown post man with game while Burton is a slashing wing scorer and Newberry can play the one or the two and Griffin adds depth to the backcourt.
28. Alabama
2014 commits (National rank)
PG Justin Coleman (No. 90)
SF Riley Norris (No. 114)
SG Devin Mitchell (No. 138)
SF Jeff Garrett (NR 3-star)
After struggling to make jumpers the past few years, the Crimson Tide put a premium on finding shooters. Coleman is small but he is jet quick and a combustible scorer from deep. Norris can spot up and hit jumpers while Mitchell is an off guard with a pure shooting stroke.
29. Miami
2014 commits (National rank)
PG Ja'Quan Newton (No. 37)
SG James Palmer (No. 99)
PF Omar Sherman (NR 3-star)
PF Ivan Cruz Uceda (JC 3-star)
In Newton, the Hurricanes are getting one of the most competitive and productive guards in the class of 2014. Palmer is a late blooming sharp shooter with upside while Sherman is a skilled big man who can shoot to the three-point line. Cruz Uceda brings size and is the wildcard of the class.
30. Michigan State
2014 commits (National rank)
PG Lourawls Nairn (No. 62)
SG Javon Bess (No. 119)
SF Marvin Clark (No. 147)
The Spartans rebounded nicely to end up with a typically solid Izzo class. Nairn plays the game at light speed while Bess improved tremendously as a senior. Clark is a nice inside/out player.
