For now, we've made the decision to go ahead and cap the five-stars at 20. While it's a good class, we're not quite ready to go beyond that number.
This time around, there are two players who enter five-star territory for the first time. California big man Marcus Lee jumps up 18 places from No. 33 to No. 15. The other new five-star is a big man as Memphis native Austin Nichols climbs up 26 spots from No. 43 to No. 17.
More for four
While Rivals.com was a little more reserved in handing out five stars, the four-star range extends all the way out to Floridian big man Demetrius Henry (a newcomer to the rankings) at No. 110.
At No. 25 nationally, Canadian import Xavier Rathan-Mayes is among the bigger movers, climbing 23 spots from No. 48.
Committed to Connecticut, shot-blocking big man Kentan Facey makes the highest entrance into the rankings going from unranked to No. 62 nationally.
The biggest mover within the rankings is versatile Georgia guard Tim Quarterman, a former three-star prospect who moves up a whopping 67 spots from No. 130 to No. 63.
