Kansas Basketball: Ranking All of Bill Self's Recruiting Classes

Head coach Bill Self was lured to Lawrence in 2003, where he convinced departing head coach Roy Williams' prized five-star recruit J.R. Giddens to honor his pledge by signing with the Jayhawks. Giddens became the first of 13 five-star recruits during Self's tenure and the staple of expected elite classes.

Those elite classes continued to roll in for Self but Giddens, together with fellow 2003 recruit David Padgett, played only a combined three seasons at Kansas. It made Self's first recruiting class inadequate, one that remains near the bottom of the ten-year head coach's all-time class rankings.

Recruiting classes are oftentimes over-hyped, overwhelmed, or simply overdone and have been ranked based upon realized star power, value, thoroughness and banners.

As Self continues to build an excellent 2013 class, we will take a look at his previous ten as head coach at Kansas.
