2010 and 2012 Rankings

I will publish my rankings for 2010 and 2012 next week. I'm going to talk to a few coaches and observers about any players that I do not have much information on. 2012 is a loaded class so far although it is very early. The spring action has been very good.

2010 is a weak class compared to 2011 and 2012. After the first few guys, there is a large drop off. The class is loaded with scoring point guards in my opinion and generally weak in other positions. Still a good amount of talent for the lower D-1 schools and D-2/NAIA which are very underrated. Division 2 and NAIA are both very competitive. They just don't have the size or quite the athleticism as the D-1 programs for the most part although D-2 and NAIA schools have beaten D-1 programs. Last year, IU-Northwest beat Eastern Kentucky on EKU's home court. That is a NAIA program...NAIA D-2 if I am not mistaken. That is just one example so do not stick your nose up at lower level college basketball. It is still very good and tough to compete at that level.
