The latest elite talent to make a college decision is Thomas Robinson.

He chose Kansas over Memphis on Friday morning.

The 6-foot-8 forward shot up the recruiting rankings this summer and is currently rated as the 20th-best prospect in the Class of 2009. Consequently, 12 of Scout.com's top 20 prospects are now off the board -- though four of the top five (Derrick Favors, John Wall, Xavier Henry and Renardo Sidney) remain uncommitted.

Here's an updated look at Scout.com's top 20 from the Class of 2009:

1. Derrick Favors (uncommitted)

2. John Wall (uncommitted)

3. John Henson (committed to North Carolina)

4. Xavier Henry (uncommitted)

5. Renardo Sidney (uncommitted)

6. DeMarcus Cousins (committed to UAB)

7. Lance Stephenson (uncommitted)

8. Kenny Boynton (uncommitted)

9. Abdul Gaddy (committed to Arizona)

10. Avery Bradley (committed to Texas)

11. Ryan Kelly (committed to Duke)

12. Daniel Orton (uncommitted)

13. Jordan Hamilton (committed to Texas)

14. Alex Oriakhi (committed to Connecticut)

15. Dominic Cheek (uncommitted)

16. Wally Judge (committed to Kansas State)

17. Dante Taylor (committed to Pittsburgh)

18. Dexter Strickland (committed to North Carolina)

19. Mason Plumlee (committed to Duke)

20. Thomas Robinson (committed to Kansas)

Yes, I'm a Jayhawk fan.

Let me say: TRob, welcome to the Jayhawk Family.  Rock Chalk ~ It's a Kansas thing!

This is sort of like a birthday present for BabyJay!

Now for a Christmas present....How about.... Xavier Henry.... hum, yeah, X would mark the spot!

And for the New Years Party, how about John Wall... that might be too bubbly for BabyJay, but it would be sweet for our Papa Hawk, Coach Bill Self!

Someone once said, dream big and big things will happen. We got the first installment of our 2009 Recruiting Dream Team.

Who's got NEXT?
