- Bob Gibbons, Scouts Inc. Basketball Recruiting
In a conference that is starving to return to the glory years of seasons past, the Pac-12 appears to be on the upswing thanks to an incoming freshman class that is littered with talent. Last season there was a feeling of frustration and bewilderment, considering the once-mighty Pac-12 received one at-large bid (California) to go along with Pac-12 tournament champion Colorado, which received an automatic bid.
The Pac-12 used to be revered as one of the most sound conferences in the country on the court. After a few not-so-impressive years, it may soon get back to that status thanks to outstanding recruiting classes.
