Guard Malik Newman maintained his stranglehold on the No. 1 spot in the 2015 rankings. There are two new prospects, however, in the top five of rankings.
Malik Newman has all the tools of an elite guard.
A high level athlete with a mature game, Newman is a lethal backcourt scorer who can also distribute the ball from the point guard position. No player in the 2015 class consistently controls a game at the level Newman does.
Behind Newman are the two best post prospects in the class- Cheick Diallo and Stephen Zimmerman. Diallo is raw offensively but has a skill base with plenty of potential. But it is his shot blocking, rebounding, transition game and strong motor which primarily give him his value.
At nearly 7-0, Zimmerman is a mobile big man with a strong basketball IQ and high skill level.
The two newcomers to the top five are guard Tyler Dorsey and Carlton Bragg. Like Newman, Dorsey is a big guard who can player either guard position. His game is marked by speed and strength with the basketball.
Bragg is a sharp shooting four man who also has athleticism and plays with some grit.
