There is an important caveat to take into consideration when reading any college basketball recruiting article at this time of year—there is still an incredible amount of time until national signing day.
That being said, there are some premier college basketball programs that have fallen behind in the early going on the 2014 recruiting trail.
Of course, this is all bound to change drastically by national signing day, especially since many of these programs are in on a handful of highly rated recruits and will likely shoot up the rankings if and when they land them, but you know the saying about counting chickens before eggs hatch.
Take this list as a snapshot of the current recruiting climate if national signing day was today. Recruiting rankings are courtesy of 247sports.com.
