Continuing in our series on ACC basketball recruiting, this time diving deep into some data. Be sure to check out Part 1 for some notes that will help you to make more sense of this data.

Analysis of this set of Data:
In looking at the year-by-year analysis of each recruiting class, along with the coaches recruiting these players to these schools, it is pretty obvious that two schools have the upper hand on the rest. Legendary Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski consistently brings in the best recruiting class across the board, nearly every single year. He has a total of 27 (with the recent addition of Marvin Bagley III for 2017) 5-star and 25 4-star recruits over this 15 year period of data. In second place is North Carolina coach Roy Williams who has 17 5-star and 23 4-star recruits over a 14 year span.
Check back later this week for Part 3 to see how this recruiting data correlates with the success of teams in both the regular season and conference tournament.
