CLASS OF 2018: Minnesota's Class of 2018 is about as deep in talent as we have seen in the last 10 years. As of the start of their Senior year of HS Basketball, there were already 25 players who have committed to D1 schools and we could easily see another 8-9 players going down that same path. As of today, the class is headlined by Wisconsin signee Carmen Backes, but the #1 spot in the Class is very much up for grabs as Backes has battled a handful of injuries over the last few seasons. With a strong high school season, we could see as many as 7-8 different players having a shot at ending up #1. That's just how even this class is at the top.
