The College Basketball recruiting process is always evolving.
But there is one rule that has remained constant for decades: There is no rule that applies to every team.
That’s why we compiled a list of the top 10 schools recruiting under the new rule that went into effect this past January.
In order to make this list, we looked at each school’s record against its conference and NCAA tournament opponents.
So, if you’re not currently on the list, make sure you’re signed up.
We are not looking for people to sit on the sidelines while we evaluate the best programs.
We just want to make sure we’re ranking schools on the field and the college level.
Here is our list of schools ranked in the Top 10 in 2018-19.1.
VillanovaHere are the top schools ranked by our ranking system:Kentucky, 9.0: This is Kentucky’s highest ranking.
The Wildcats went into the 2017-18 season ranked fifth, and they fell to 12th by the end of the season.
Kentucky was No. 4 in the country for most of that season and finished fifth.
After the season, Kentucky president John Calipari said he thought his team would fall in the rankings because of its recruiting struggles.
“I don’t think that they’re recruiting the best guys,” Calipare told reporters.
But after the season the Wildcats rebounded.
Calipares team won the ACC Tournament and reached the Final Four.
The program is now ranked No. 5 in the AP poll.
Wisconsin, 9: Wisconsin has the best chance of making the NCAA tournament, and it is expected to have its best season since the 2014-15 season.
The Badgers are No. 6 in the nation and they should be able to finish in the top five in the Big Ten standings this season.
Wisconsin coach Chris Collins has said his team has a strong nucleus and is building an identity.
Wisconsin is one of the few programs in the league that has a coach who is not on a list that lists the schools with the best record.
But Wisconsin is a team with the most talented players and is built around a core of star players like Jahlil Okafor, Ben Brust and Joel Embiid.
“We’re all about playing hard,” Collins said.
“So the way I look at it, we have a group of guys that are going to have to prove themselves, that are in this program, that have to get better every day and be able the next time we play.”
Arizona, 8.6: Arizona will be one of only three schools to reach the NCAA Tournament since 1999-2000.
But the Wildcats lost two players from that team in the 2017 NBA Draft, including the No. 1 pick in the draft.
Arizona finished the regular season ranked third in the Pac-12 and went on to win the Pac 12 North, which is the league’s best division.
The Cardinals will be looking to add to their NCAA Tournament résumé this season, as they will be playing in the NCAA Final Four for the first time since 2007.
The Big East will be the top conference this year, but Maryland will be No. 2.
Maryland lost forward Kyle Wiltjer to the NBA Draft after the 2017 season and has been rebuilding.
The Terrapins are a solid team that won the conference regular season title in 2019-20 and will be in the tournament this season as the No and No. 7 seeds.
Gonzauas ranking is up, but not enough to vault it above the rest of the league.
Wisconsin is No. 8 in the ACC standings.
The Big Ten conference has a great group of players, including Marquette’s Bam Adebayo, Gonzaga’s Kris Jenkins and Syracuse’s Mike Yeguete.
But it also has two of the nation’s best programs in Wisconsin and the Big East.
Michigan State and Maryland will play in the Sweet 16, and Gonzaga will be a part of the conference tournament.
Arizona will have the best shot at making the Sweet Sixteen this season after winning its first ACC title since 2013-14.
Villalobos ranking is down a notch.
Villarreal is still in a rebuilding mode and is one loss away from being a losing team.
But Villarrobes top-10 ranking is a big step up from the last time Villarrais finished in the bottom 10 of our rankings.
Maryland, 9,7: Maryland is the best team in this recruiting class.
The Cougars are No 1 in the conference and ranked second in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Maryland will face off against Georgia in the SEC Tournament.
Villanobos ranking was up in 2018, but is now in the middle of the pack.
Maryland has a good group of talented players, but it has to overcome the bad loss of senior guard Terrence Jones, who committed to
