SEC hoops bias?

One would think two teams in the Final Four from the SEC last year would give the league some respect in basketball.

Apparently not.

I was just looking at some recruiting rankings from Scout.com. The Web site had its top five recruiting classes for next month's early signing period - you won't find an SEC team in the group.

Now, I don't know everything there is to know about this recruiting class and who is signing which players. It just seems odd that three Big Ten schools rank in the top five. What about Billy Donovan at Florida?

Well, there's some hope there.

Writes Scout.com's Dave Telep, "Florida has an argument to be a top-5 class. If they land (Patrick) Patterson, then Billy Donovan's crew chomps someone right out of their path to the upper echelon on this list.''

As for LSU, Telep has some kind words for LSU commitment Anthony Randolph. "Randolph has one of the bigger ceilings of anyone in the nation.''
