Xavier knew it had a good class for 2017, but today made that official. Once the National Letters of Intent come in, the players are all but in uniform and on the bench. Most seasons Xavier has one or two good players and some players who could build into stars. This year, Xavier brought in two top 100 prospects (more than the American Athletic Conference) and the worst ranked prospect is a 6-11, 285 pound monster who graded out as a 75. Did Xavier Athletics have social media? You know they did.
