4, not five; Arop is not on it. Thompson, Nolan’s, Bedri and Brown are all on it. Should be one of the better incoming Ivy classes for a change.

Arop is doing a prep year at Hotchkiss and remains fully committed to Columbia, according to this tweet: https://twitter.com/jakelieberman2/status /15179416...

Gives Engles and co. a pretty good building block for assembling the rest of their class this year.

Even without Arop, it's a strong cohort. It's also noteworthy that the class was wrapped up so soon, one to almost two months before the announcement in recent years has been made.

For the first time, it won't be the talent deficit that costs us games.

I saw that one service had Noland as a 4 star and a top 150. If that’s correct we haven’t had anybody rated that highly in a long time.

My mistake —is is Brown who is a top 150 and a 4 star according to one service.

Thompson is also a Top 150.

So how does this class compare to other incoming Ivy classes?

I think a down year overall for the league. Harvard seems to have the best individual recruit on paper (Okpara). To me, Columbia’s class looks competitive with anyone in the league for this year, assuming everyone is done.

My amateur's ranking would be as follows:

1a. Columbia - for all the reasons mentioned above

1b. Harvard - in addition to Okpara, the two other guys are top 25 in New England, according to NERR

2. Princeton - ESPN has Jack Scott listed as 4-star recruit

3. Yale - Danny Wolf is a top 10 player in New England, according to NERR and Devon Arlington is a 3-star PG recruit.

After that, I think it's harder to separate the teams - each has at least one standout player, albeit a standout that's not quite at the level of those teams with the top four recruiting classes. Then again, what do I know.

I see the standouts for Penn and Cornell. Who are the standouts for Brown and Dartmouth? Of course, quantity matters too, so even if Brown doesn’t have a standout, their 4 may be better than Penn’s 2. But curious who sticks out.

For Dartmouth, I would point to Jackson Munro, who was Chicago Sun-Times First Team All-State for Class 4A. He's a stretch four who averaged 17 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 blocks while shooting 64% from the field this past season at New Trier. Watching some of his highlights, he reminds me of a poor man's Evan Boudreaux - emphasis on "poor man's", I'm not suggesting he's going to have that kind of impact, at least at first, just that he has shown the ability to score from the perimeter on a relatively consistent basis.

For Brown, I have to admit that my optimism about this player might stem from my bias, but I would say that Kala Anyu looks like an exciting prospect. He played most of his high school basketball at Governor's Academy, but just finished a prep year at IMG Academy in Florida, where he played with guys who are heading to Baylor, Houston, Michigan, etc. He's 6' 7" with a 7' 2" wingspan and a ton of bounce, which I think will help him make an immediate impact on defense. Offensively, he's more of a slasher and if he has a jump shot, it's not something he relies on, which I think will hold him back in league play at first.
