After releasing our updated 2013 player rankings last week, this week we take a look at the top recruiting classes. North Carolina sits at the top, but Kansas and Purdue aren't too far behind.

2013 Top Recruiting ClassesNotable Recruits / Scout Rankings
1 North Carolina

Evan Daniels' Class Notes:
North Carolina class: There are only two recruits in the top 15 committed and both happen to be headed to Chapel Hill. Roy Williams is off to a terrific start in 2013
Isaiah Hicks (8)
Nate Britt (15)



2 Kansas

Evan Daniels' Class Notes:
Kansas class: Bill Self is off to a great start in 2013. Hhis future backcourt consists of two terrific shooters in Brannen Greene and Conner Frankamp
Brannen Greene (20)
Conner Frankamp (64)



3 Purdue

Evan Daniels' Class Notes:
Purdue class: Matt Painter is hitting the midwest hard again. Scott and Stephens are both among the 2013 top 100, while Smotherman is a solid wing prospect from Indy
Bryson Scott (56)
Kendall Stephens (69)
Basil Smotherman


4 Illinois

Evan Daniels' Class Notes:
Illinois class: Bruce Weber has made it a point to pick up local recruits and their two in 2013 are both from Illinois and both ranked among the nation's top 100 prospects
Malcolm Hill (65)
Jalen James (86)



5 Michigan

Evan Daniels' Class Notes:
Michigan class: Derrick Walton, a quick, but tough lead guard, is their highest rated prospect, but Zak Irvin, Mark Donnal and Austin Hatch all have some ability
Derrick Walton (60)
Zak Irvin
Mark Donnal
Austin Hatch

6 Indiana

Evan Daniels' Class Notes:
Indiana class: Indiana recently scored their third commitment for the 2013 class when Fischer jumped on board. He's a versatile four man with some skill
Luke Fischer (97)
Devin Davis
Colin Hartman


7 Florida

Evan Daniels' Class Notes:
Florida class: Kasey Hill was Florida's top guard target and they locked him up early. Look for the Gators to stay in-state and go after Hill's AAU teammate Chris Walker next
Kasey Hill




8 Duke

Evan Daniels' Class Notes:
Duke class: Duke loves their shooters and Matt Jones will fit right in. He rips it from long range and is the top shooter in the 2013 class
Matt Jones (19)




9 Arkansas

Evan Daniels' Class Notes:
Arkansas class: Mike Anderson didn't waste anytime at Arkansas reeling in a highly regarded four-star recruit in Bobby Portis, plus in-state guard Dederick Lee
Bobby Portis (30)
Dederick Lee



10 Ohio State

Evan Daniels' Class Notes:
Ohio State class: Thad Matta does well with in-state talent and five-star recruit Marc Loving is certainly one that can succeed in his system.
Marc Loving (21)






HONORABLE MENTION: Kentucky, Louisville, Marquette, Seton Hall, UNLV.
