RSCI ranks MU as 9th best recruiting class

The RSCI, or Recruiting Services Consensus Index, was put together to take the various recruiting experts ranking systems and cross reference them. By pulling in a multitude of experts opinions, an average ranking could be established. For example, one service may have Dominic James ranked 65th in the country while four other services have him ranked 35, 40 45, and 42....thus his RSCI ranking would be 56.75 (the average of the five rankings).

This system is used to take out some of the biases one expert may have for certain players. It is not perfect by any stretch, but fun to look at.

In the final rankings for this year, Marquette's class finished 9th in the country. Click here for a link to the "RSCI winners" and congratulations to Tom Crean for nailing a great class.
