The focus of the college basketball world is already shifting towards next season, and coaches are putting the final touches on their 2018 classes.
On Monday, Rivals released the final edition of their top 150 players. The rankings can be found here, and feature the usual crop of schools pulling in the bulk of the stars. Duke, Kentucky, Kansas and even Indiana are once again staples with the best players in the high school ranks.
However, the talent isn’t just limited to the Power 5 schools. There are nine players that have committed to play at a mid-major school next season, which is up from just five players in last year’s rankings (six if you include Mitchell Robinson). It’s not just limited to the usual suspects either. There are recruits going to seven different mid-major leagues.
Here are the commits in order of ranking.
