<div class="quote_poster">Quote:</div><div class="quote_post">After earning the No. 1 spot in the early signing period, Kansas State falls to the No. 2 position in the 2007 team recruiting rankings. The addition of point guard Jai Lucas in the late signing period vaulted Florida from fifth up to No. 1.
Villanova (12), Kentucky (13) and Cincinnati (15) are new to the top 25 after some key additions in the late signing period or rankings boosts for players already signed. The list has been expanded to include 30 classes and previously unranked Pittsburgh (26), Illinois (29) and St. John's (30) also moved into the ranking.
The only school falling completely out was Michigan after four-star shooting guard Alex Legion was released from his letter of intent and signed with Kentucky. </div>
Despite not signing Patterson, the Gators move 5 spots to the top. Maybe the Gators are here to stay. No rebuilding, just reloading is the best way to stay as an elite basketball program. The best part of this class is none of the players really look like a one and done prospect. Calathes is the closest too jumping, but who knows if he is good enough to jump right away. Not to mention Calathes signed on with the Gators at the beginning of his junior year, so he's had his heart set on playing for Florida. That might keep him more than one year.
Could we see another double title in Gainesville in 2-3 years as the Gators have also netted the #1 football recruiting class for next year with the #2 class from last year.
