2022 SI All-American Top 25 Basketball Recruiting Rankings

Duke holds its standing as the top recruiting class in the final SI All-American team rankings.

A year ago, at his retirement press conference Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski made it clear that he wouldn’t be recruiting players that he wouldn’t be coaching, and as a result new Blue Devils head coach Jon Scheyer and his staff went to work all last summer.

In the end, the Blue Devils reeled in three players ranked in the top five of the SI99, four in the top 15 and, arguably, the country’s top marksman.

"It’s definitely important, and the way our recruiting has worked, we need big classes every year,” Scheyer told SI last June when he was announced as the Blue Devils’ coach in waiting. “I’m very excited about the prospects of this class.”

Arkansas coach Eric Musselman boasts a deep and talented six-man class headlined by Nick Smith Jr., the No. 2 overall player in the SI99. Kansas rounded out the top three with their SI99-rich class led by Gradey Dick, ranked No. 7 overall, and MJ Rice, ranked No. 9.
