Oregon, Rutgers, South Carolina, South Florida, Syracuse, Wake Forest, Western Kentucky and West Virginia received commitments since Rivals.com's February update of the 2009 team recruiting rankings. None of these teams, however, were able to crack the top 25.
Memphis, on the other hand, landed the No. 2 ranked prospect in the country in DeMarcus Cousins. That commitment catapulted the Tigers' recruiting class from the No. 5 spot all the way to the top of the list.
Already with Cousins, Xavier Henry (No. 3), Nolan Dennis (No. 47) and two four-star junior college players (Darnell Dodson and Will Coleman) in tow, Memphis could also add the No. 1 ranked prospect in the country. John Wall is seriously considering the Tigers, and could join the fold during the spring signing period.
If the Tigers do land Wall, they would arguably have the best recruiting class in college basketball history.
