It is time to unveil our first edition of the 2013 top 10 class rankings.
The team with the No. 1 class in our first class rankings in 2013 is North Carolina. Roy Williams and the Tar Heels are a mainstay in the yearly rankings and the 2013 class is no exception. They currently have two of the top three committed players in Isaiah Hicks (No. 11), a 6'8 power forward, and Nate Britt (No. 22), a 6'0 point guard.
Checking in at No. 2 is another ACC power. Duke boasts a class of just one player, but in our eyes the No. 18 ranked prospect (Matt Jones) and arguably the best shooter in this class, is enough to place the Blue Devils here.
Coming in with the No. 4 class in 2013 is a team that made a top 10 appearance in the final 2011 class rankings. Arkansas' first year head coach Mike Anderson is off to a fast start in 2013 with two of our top 100 prospects in Bobby Portis (No. 35), a 6'9 big man, and 6'2 combo-guard Dederick Lee (No. 83).
Rounding out the top five is Ohio State, which at this point has just one commit in top Ohio and No. 28 ranked prospect Marc Loving, a 6'7 small forward.
The rest of the top 10 includes; Purdue with two top 100 prospects (Kendall Stephens and Bryson Scott), Michigan also with two top 100's (Zak Irvin and Derrick Walton), Marquette and Deonte Burton, UNLV with Christian Wood and DePaul with Billy Garrett Jr.
These rankings will certainly change many times over the next year, as only two of the top 25 prospects, nine of the top 50 and just twenty of the top 100 are committed in the 2013 class.
