Basketball Times ranks Ritchie McKay's first Liberty recruiting class at No. 48.

Basketball Times, a publication covering collegiate basketball for over 25 years, ranked Liberty's 2008 recruiting class at No. 48 in its most recent issue.

In his first recruiting class at Liberty, head men's basketball coach Ritchie McKay and staff in November signed Seth Curry, Brolin Floyd, Sammy Jackson, Mike Lewis, Carter McMasters and Austin Smith to national letters of intent for the 2008-09 academic year.

Basketball Times ranked its Top 50, and Liberty joined No. 26 Xavier, No. 31 Rhode Island, No. 36 Fresno State, No. 36 New Mexico, No. 36 St. Louis, No. 41 Dayton, No. 50 Hofstra and No. 50 Gonzaga as the only schools that are not a part of a BCS conference.

"I never had a Top 50 recruiting class at Oregon State or New Mexico," said McKay. "What Liberty University offers a student-athlete is really reflected in the caliber of the individual and the caliber of the player we were able to sign."
