Oregon started the year No. 1 in the AP Top 25. The Ducks have the No. 1 player in the country in Sabrina Ionescu. And they also start the early period of national signing week with the No. 1 recruiting class for 2020.

Oregon has five prospects who are ranked inside the top 33, led by No. 10 Sydney Parrish. The Ducks also have No. 15 Kylee Watson, No. 19 Maddie Scherr, No. 24 Angela Dugalic and No. 33 Te-Hina Paopao.

UConn has the No. 2 class. The Huskies landed top prospect Paige Bueckers, a skilled combo guard who delivers consistent offensive production off the dribble. Bueckers joins a class that features No. 21 prospect Mir McLean, No. 26 prospect Aaliyah Edwards, international prospect Nika Muhl and unranked Piath Gabriel.

Muffet McGraw's four top-50 prospects put Notre Dame's recruiting class at No. 3, while No. 5 Kamilla Cardoso's commitment to Syracuse has the Orange in at No. 4. Stanford, thanks to No. 3 prospect Cameron Brink, comes in at No. 5.

California, Baylor, Iowa State, Ole Miss and Kentucky round out the top 10 in the class rankings entering signing week.
