Know most on here view recruiting rankings as useless, but for those who find them at least mildly intriguing, Rivals.com released its final Top 150 for the Class of 2012 today and Indiana saw some rises and falls in the rankings of their commitments. Park Tudor point guard Yogi Ferrell came close to holding position. The McDonald’s All-American is No. 19 overall, slipping two spots from No. 17. La Lumiere forward Hanner Mosquera-Perea took a significant dip, however, falling from No. 16 to No. 43 and going from a five-star prospect to a four-star. Lawrence Central swingman Jeremy Hollowell got a slight bump, going from No. 48 to No 41 and Broad Ripple guard Ron Patterson stayed the same at No. 131. Center Peter Jurkin is still not in the Top 150.
Glen Robinson III made one of the most significant jumps on the board, leaping to No. 11 overall to become the highest rated player in the state of Indiana, passing both Ferrell and Michigan State signee Gary Harris, who was recently named Mr. Basketball. Shabazz Muhammad and Nerlens Noel, both of whom are expected to make the announcement of their college decisions tonight, are ranked No. 1 and No. 2 respectively.
