Marquette's recruiting class ranked 4th in nation

For you recruiting maniacs, one service (Hoop Scoop) has Marquette finishing with the 4th best recruiting class in the country, just ahead of national champion North Carolina. Bear in mind that Hoop Scoop uses a combination of quality and quantity to score their classes. In other words, if you land 5 players that are all top 100, that class can be ranked higher than a class of two top 20 guys if that is all that school landed. Critics point to the quantity part as a hole in their evaluation scheme.

The complete Hoop Scoop list of 285 classes can be found here.
