The SEC has become one college basketball's strongest conferences over the past decade as Kentucky has become a powerhouse again under John Calipari, while Billy Donovan has built a consistent winner at Florida with championships in 2006 and 2007.
But there has also been a trickle down effect.
Seven of the top 15 overall prospects in the Class of 2013 are SEC-bound: Andrew and Aaron Harrison and James Young to Kentucky, Kasey Hill and Chris Walker to Florida, Bobby Portis to Arkansas and Jarrell Martin to LSU.
Each of the five remaining top-15 prospects are considering at least one SEC school.
The SEC has 13 top-50 commits, which is more than double the amount from the ACC (6) and Big 12 (6).
