Recruiting Royalty

There is a clear cutoff for basketball recruiting royalty, and it comes right after Duke, North Carolina, and Kentucky. You can slice the data a few different ways to make it look like Kansas is close to being the third-best recruiting school in the recent past, but it's essentially impossible to put them above fourth.
