Updated 2015 Rankings

As the high school season comes to a close, Scout.com has updated the 2015 player rankings. Diamond Stone ranks No. 1 in the class.


When Karl Towns opted to reclassify to the 2014 class in early December, Diamond Stone moved his way to the No. 1 spot in the 2015.

In our first update since that move, Stone, a 6-foot-10, 235-pound center, has held on to the top spot.

Stone's ability to score on the low block is arguably his biggest strength. He's confident in his post moves, has a handful of them and has great touch with either hand around the basket.

Moving up to No. 2 in our updated rankings is Oakland (Calif.) Bishop O'Dowd standout Ivan Rabb.

An athletic power forward, Rabb has shown improvement over the last year. At 6-foot-9, he moves and jumps well, has some scoring ability on the block and defends his position well.

Just behind Rabb at No. 3 is New York native Thomas Bryant.

A wiry post player, Bryant impresses with his skill, especially for his size (6-foot-9). He has good hands and touch, plus he can score inside or he can step out and hit jump shots.

Mickey Mitchell and Stephen Zimmerman close out the updated 2015 top five.

The 2015 rankings have expanded from a top 25 to a top 40. There isn't one committed prospect on the list.

The list is big man heavy, as 20 of the 40 players are power forward or center prospects.
