What if rankings were based on player's projected tenure

Rankings are done on current ability (and projected potential).

But is it better for a school to have a tenth ranked player for one year or a 30th ranked player who stays for three or four years?

As talented as many of these studs are, staying for only their freshman season they are still in early development physically and often don't fit especially well in team chemistry.

Kentucky is flag bearer for one and done strategy and only have one NCAA Championship over the past 19 years.

Of course can't project who will go and who will stay right now. But would be interesting to rank this year's class four years from now.
