Oregon Tops Women’s Collegiate Recruiting

For nearly 50 years now, T&FN has annually been tracking collegiate recruiting. Our yearly “Where They Are Going” feature is one of our most popular items. This year’s roundup is available in the January 2014 edition, which hits the newsstands this week (and is already available in on-line fashion).

Since 1995, we have also been rating the year’s top classes. Topping the ratings this year were Robert Johnson’s Oregon Ducks, whose class featured a trio of prep All-Americas. The Ducks previously won in ’05 and ’10.

This year’s top 10: 1. Oregon; 2. Texas; 3. Duke; 4. Stanford; 5. Kentucky; 6. Arizona State; 7. Texas A&M; 8. South Carolina; 9. Harvard; 10. Nebraska.

Here’s the yearly Top 5s, starting with ’95.
