Top freshmen forge their own paths in picking schools
November 18, 2020
Many of the nation's brightest prospects in the most recent recruiting class didn't necessarily select the most obvious schools.
Kentucky, Duke and Kansas have landed many of the notable one-and-done performers over the last decade. But according to composite rankings of recruiting sites compiled by 247Sports, those three schools landed only two of the top 12 recruits in this year's freshman class: Kentucky guards Brandon Boston Jr. (No. 5) and Terrence Clarke (No. 8).
In the meantime, four of the top seven players chose Oklahoma State, Southern California, Stanford and Florida State.
