2) Rick Barnes has done a terrific job building Tennessee back into a national power and has the Volunteers right behind Duke at No. 2. With the recent addition of five-star shooting guard Keon Johnson(No. 17), to go along with five-star forward Corey Walker (No. 24), this class has real staying power near the top of the rankings.
