Raleigh (Upper Room Christian)
The combo guard backed out of a verbal commitment to Louisville on May 2 after the assistant who recruited him, Tim Fuller, left for Missouri during the off-season. Purvis, a prolific scorer, says the Cardinals are still an option, but he is expected to consider Mizzou, Duke and N.C. State, among other schools.

Providence (Notre Dame Prep)
Ledo is the best pure scorer in his class, but the shooting guard has jumped among three high schools in eight months, raising some red flags for recruiters. He also gave Providence a verbal commitment and then backed off. Ledo's talent, though, is unmistakable: "He has the makings of a legitimate NBA shooting guard if he stays focused," says Rivals.com's Meyer.

Claremont, N.H. (St. Mark's)
He's an on-the-rise big man—and key Kansas and North Carolina target—who's been working with former Celtics coach John Carroll on developing low-post moves. "He's shown some strong offensive improvement this spring, with a hook shot over his left shoulder that's extremely tough to guard," says Scout.com's Daniels.
