In college basketball, a team's fortunes can change with a single player, making the recruiting period fiercely competitive. Traditional powers Duke, North Carolina, UCLA, Kentucky and Kansas regularly snag targeted recruits, while less accomplished programs scrutinize prospects for untapped potential.
