High schools: What about the 2012 basketball class?

The depth of mid-major talent is as strong as any class to come through the state, including standouts like James Woodard and Aaron Anderson.

While the 2013 basketball recruiting class is unique because of its talent at the top, the current group of seniors has a unique aspect as well — depth.

Even if the elite programs aren't flocking to the state to see the 2012 class, plenty of college coaches are still recruiting Oklahoma hard.

The depth of mid-major talent is as strong as any class to come through the state.

The 2012 class is missing its one elite star. Ardmore's Nino Jackson, regarded as a top-50 national recruit at one point, hasn't played a high school game since last February when academic issues sidelined him just before the state tournament. The 6-foot-2 combo guard had offers from North Carolina, Kansas, Texas and several more, but his future is uncertain.

Of the current seniors, only Sperry's C.J. Cole has a major-college opportunity locked up. The underrated 6-foot-7 forward will be a recruited walk-on at Oklahoma next year.
