New, 32 comments

With four commitments already, Rick Pitino's recruiting class of 2013 currently sits as the third-best in the nation.

Scout.com's Evan Daniels has updated his recruiting rankings for the class of 2013, and has Rick Pitino's four player class of Anton Gill, Akoy Agau, Terry Rozier and Chris Jones slotted third.

Louisville trails only Florida and Memphis in the new rankings.

Obviously much of the reason Louisville is currently ranked so high is because most of the five-star players in the class are still uncommitted. That said, I still think this will wind up being a top 10 or top 15 class for Rick Pitino.

Anton Gill steadily rose up the recruiting rankings last year and I don't think he'll give folks any reason to drop him down during this season. Akoy Agau has been hurt by the fact that he plays in Nebraska and not a lot of people have been able to see him play. I think that will change now that he has "committed - Louisville" next to his name. The thing that will ultimately hurt U of L when the final rankings come out is the fact that Jones is a JuCo transfer, because if he were an actual member of the class then I think he'd warrant five-star status.

As always, we should never get too caught up in things like recruiting rankings. This is a good class as it stands, and I think there's a chance that it could get even better.
