The 2022-23 season is only a few weeks away from kicking off and as usual another talented crop of freshmen has made their way to college campuses. If there is anything that we all love to do this time of year, it is dream of how great each new recruit is going to be and how they are going to help lead a winning team back to the ball or change the fortunes of a struggling program.
That optimism is magnified when it comes to five-star prospects. Not only are they expected to be ready to contribute right away, but history has shown us that often times they don’t stick around long so the programs need to get as much out of them as they can in a short period of time.
However, not all five-stars are going to be playing the same roles or be faced with the same pressure to perform early. Some will join teams with experience where they can afford to get acclimated to the college game over the course of a few months. Others, well they had better be ready to rock from the moment the ball goes up in the air on opening night.
With that in mind, we take a look at the 10 incoming five-star prospects whose impact is going to be the most crucial to their team’s success this season.
