HerHoopStats reports that the schools that got the most top ten recruits since 2010 are (the full story is at https://herhoopstats.substack.com/p/analysis-of-ncaaw-recruiting-part-691):

UConn 11
Duke 10
Tennessee 10
Texas 8

Now it could be that rankings are suspect. It could be that there's more to college coaching than just collecting elite talent.

Regardless, interesting ...

When you go to top 100 recruits

Duke 33
Stanford 29
Maryland 28
Louisville 28

Overall, when you go further down the list, it's clear that talent=success, but there are obvious issues about talent evaluation and talent development.

My question is how do relatively mediocre programs attract high school stars over more successful programs? Are athletes picking schools for non-basketball reasons? Duke is understandable due to the perceived value of their degree but if that is the case why aren't Stanford, N Dame and Vandi on that list?

Some coaches are very good salespeople.

I can just imagine JPM telling a recruit:

"And just think, you will always be free attend spring breaks in April". Laughing
