Track & Field News has announced the top-10 recruiting classes in the country for 2006-2007 signees and the Bruins are prominently featured on both the men's and women's side. The women earned the No. 2 ranking in the country, while the men come in at No. 10.

Texas A&M earned the No. 1 spot on the women's side in what the magazine felt was "a year where the top two teams were so close that a 1A and 1B designation could have been justified," but the Aggies edged the Bruins for the top recruiting spot.

Jeanette Bolden's recruiting class is comprised of two U.S. National Prep record holders in Tori Anthony (pole vault) and Ke'Nyia Richardson (triple jump). Richardson is also a huge talent in the long jump and high hurdles, and was also ranked nationally in those events. Every event group is represented in last season's signing class and the Bruins are eager to show just what kind of talent Bolden has brought together.

On the men's side, Kentucky took home the honor after UCLA held down the No. 1 spot last season. The Bruins come in at No. 10 in this year's rankings after bringing in some very talented young track athletes.

Highlighting the class are U.S. National Prep record holder in the 800m, Cory Primm, long distance sensation Michael Cybulski and quarter-miler Nevin Gutteriez. Like the women's squad, all event groups are represented in the signing class as the men will look to continue the success that last year's team had at Nationals (No. 9).
