In college sports, overall success is a reflection of a team's ability to recruit the very best student-athletes to its program. 

When discussing the history of college basketball, the Duke Blue Devils have become one of the elite programs to enjoy an abundance of success in that regard. 

Led by Mike Krzyzewski, the winningest coach in NCAA Division I men's basketball history, the nation's top prospects from across the country are drawn to the overwhelming stature that Duke has developed over time. 

Throughout the course of history for Duke, each season a highly formidable class enters Durham with great hopes and expectations of succeeding at the highest level. 

But, which recruiting classes would be considered the best from a program standpoint?

After a great deal of thought and deliberation, I believe the answer comes in the form of five very special classes that left their own unique mark, not only at Duke but in the realm of college basketball.

Counting down from fifth to first, these are the greatest recruiting classes in the history of the Duke basketball program that have separated themselves from the rest in terms of impact, achievement and excellence.
