Recruiting Services Consensus Index (RSCI) Data Added to Basketball-Reference

Posted by Neil on December 17, 2013

Just a quick note that we've added the Recruiting Services Consensus Index (RSCI) high school rankings to BBR, going back to the HS class of 1998. These will now show up on yearly RSCI pages, as well as player pages (under the bio section -> "recruiting rank") when applicable.

If you're not familiar with the RSCI service, they cull together various national recruiting lists and combine them together into a consensus ranking (like DraftExpress, we've also tweaked the basic RSCI by including prep-school players for their final year of the recruiting process, which is also why some players may be listed multiple years). The rankings you see at BBR are the final standings for each year; for more info on how the process works, as well as additional data like in-season rankings (fall, pre-summer, etc.), be sure to go to

    The draft info has some errors, e.g. Mike Duleavy in '99 is listed as undrafted when he went 3rd overall, PJ Tucket in '03 is likewise listed as undrafted and went 35th.

    Thanks Levi. This has been fixed.
