The recruiting landscape is shifting in college basketball, with the most exciting recruiting class coming from the Big 12 and ACC, according to 247Sports.
The Big 12 is looking to add five more top-10 players in the class of 2021.
In the last five years, the conference has added three more players, according a source with knowledge of the situation.
The most recent class to come out of the conference was No. 1 overall recruit T.J. Leaf from Arkansas, who was ranked No. 11 by Rivals.com.
That class included four-star guard T.j.
Hunter, four-stars forward Myles Brandt and five-star forward Jalen Williams.
The ACC is still the most enticing, with four-and-a-half-stars guard Shabazz Muhammad and five players.
That was followed by a four-man class of five-stars power forward Trey Coyle, three-star center Tyreke Evans and five other five-men.
The only notable change to the 2017 class is the departure of five recruits from the top-ranked class of 2017, which included seven-footer Deon Cain, four other five players and four four-sport athletes.
The departures included three-time McDonald’s All-American point guard Shavon Shields, two-time NBA All-Star point guard J.R. Smith and two-year NBA All.1 selection, guard Myles Garrett, who committed to Kentucky earlier this month.
Garrett was the most intriguing recruit from the conference, as he’s been recruited by schools like Kentucky, Florida, Michigan and LSU, among others.
However, it appears Garrett has the most potential to leave the conference.
The 247Sports Composite is currently ranking Garrett as the nation’s No. 8 recruit and No. 7 overall player.
The next big change will come from the SEC, which is looking at four top-25 recruits.
This class includes three-stars center Myles Gibbs, four four and five stars, who averaged 12.4 points and 7.4 rebounds per game last season, according the 247Sports composite rankings.
Gibbs was a unanimous four-time Big 12 Conference Player of the Year and a two-star recruit, who left Alabama after the 2017 season.
He is considered one of the top guards in the country.
The SEC has also added two more top 10 recruits in the 2018 class.
Three-star point guard D.J., who was a four time McDonald’s all-American, is ranked No, 10 in the 247Composite.
He averaged 14.3 points and 5.8 rebounds per contest.
The four- and five guys are all considered to be the best five- and six-man classes in the history of the league, according 247Sports, with Gibbs as the top player and Gibbs, Gibbs, Mitchell, Mitchell and Gibbs the next five.
A final group of five five-sports players was announced Friday by 247Sports and will be added to the 247 composite rankings once the 2021 class is finalized.
Five-sporting players include four-point guard Dontae Davis, six-foot guard Jordan Bell, two five-point guards and four other players, including two fivesports guards, including guard Jalen Rose, who transferred from Texas A&M after last season.
Five-sporters include five-man guard Jalent Johnson, who is ranked as the No. 6 player in the 2019 class by 247Compoite.
The 5-star prospect is ranked among the nation�s best power forwards in the upcoming class.
A fifth five-player is expected to arrive next week.
The player who has the greatest chance to leave is point guard Trey Lyles, who will be a six-star in the 2020 class.
Lyles is ranked the No., 5-man and the No, 6-man in the 2021 rankings by 247.com, which will also release the 2021 ranking.
