Contrary to the list of college basketball programs that recruited from at least 12 different states/countries for the 2014-15 season—which had eight representatives in the NCAA Tournament—the bottom teams in terms of eclectic recruitment only sent three teams to the Big Dance this year.

It’s not necessarily a bad thing when a program doesn’t cast a wide net while recruiting. In fact, it sometimes means those teams merely excel at hauling in the top local talents.

In any case, PointAfter compiled the data for every college basketball program in the country. We found the Division-I teams with the least diverse recruits based on their place of birth—not the high school(s) they attended. The following 2014-15 basketball rosters have recruited players spanning five states or fewer.

Note: Visuals used do not represent players born outside of the United States. In those instances, we’ll add notes to signify them.
