Editor's note: Every Monday in "Starting 5," we'll roll out five stories, themes and nuggets from the basketball recruiting world to tip off your week in proper form. We'll set the table with the stories that need to be told and give you a leg up on the water cooler conversations around the office.

This week's edition of Starting 5 includes a breakdown of Team USA's roster for the Nike Hoop Summit, a look at where Louisville-bound post-grad Terry Rozier would rank among this year's point guard class, a closer look at the Tyus Jones/Jahlil Okafor package deal whispers, DeMatha Catholic's (Md.) potential next great star and why St. Benedict's (N.J.) has one of the most talented starting lineups in the nation.
