Baylor lands two more elite prospects

Summer teammates Quincy Miller and Deuce Bello -- two consensus top 50 prospects from the Class of 2011 -- verbally committed to Baylor on Thursday and made it clear that Scott Drew's program won't suffer in recruiting because of recent negative headlines.

MaxPreps.com ranks Miller, a 6-foot-9 forward, No. 4 in the class.

Bello, a 6-4 combo guard, is No. 45.

Miller's commitment means Baylor will likely have a signee in the McDonald's All-American game for the second consecutive season considering Perry Jones, now a freshman on campus, made it last March. It's also worth noting that Isaiah Austin, a 7-0 center from the Class of 2012, should make it three straight McDonald's All-Americans next year. MaxPreps.com ranks him No. 2 in the class of 2012. He's already committed to Baylor.

Louisville adds another elite recruit

Louisville's Rick Pitino showed again Tuesday that his program hasn't been damaged by issues away from the court by gaining another commitment from a consensus top 50 national recruit -- this time in-state standout Chane Behanan.

"I’m committing to Louisville," Behanan told Scout.com recruiting analyst Evan Daniels. “I felt comfortable there. I just bonded real well with the team and the coaches. ... I just based it all off my comfort zone and the location."

Scout.com ranks Behanan 29th nationally in the Class of 2011. He's the fourth prospct to commit to Louisville. The others are Wayne Blackshear (No. 12), Zach Price (No. 53) and Ryan Taylor (unranked), and most recruiting analysts believe Quincy Miller (No. 2) and Deuce Bello (No. 32) could join the group within the next week to give the Cards a six-player class that would probably rank second only to Kentucky's class featuring Anthony Davis (No. 1), Mike Gilchrist (No. 5), Marquis Teague (No. 6) and Kyle Wiltjer (No. 19).

Miller to Louisville this weekend?

Another elite prospect from the Class of 2011 came off the board this weekend, meaning 12 of the top 20, according to MaxPreps.com, are now verbally committed to a specific college.

The highest-rated players who remain open are No. 2 Austin Rivers, No. 3 Adonis Thomas and No. 4 Quincy Miller. Rivers is still considering Florida, Duke, North Carolina, and Kansas while Thomas announced this weekend that he's narrowed his list of potential schools to Memphis, Florida, Tennessee, UCLA, Arkansas and Kansas.

Meantime, Miller might actually be the next to pop. Scout.com recruiting analyst Evan Daniels told Matt Jones on the radio in Kentucky this morning that Miller is no longer considering John Calipari's Wildcats, and that Miller "could" commit to Louisville this weekend. If so, it would be a huge get for Rick Pitino because he already has a commitment from No. 15 Wayne Blackshear, and it could help the Cards ultimately land Deuce Bello, Miller's summer teammate who won the dunk contest at this past weekend's Boost Mobile Elite 24 all-star game.
