Kentucky boasts two top-15 signees, along with a third ranked inside the top 40 of the final Recruiting Services Consensus Index (RSCI) rankings.

RSCI, which combines the rankings of all of the well-known recruiting experts into a single, consensus ranking, has Daimion Collins listed at No. 12 overall and No. 5 among power forwards and TyTy Washington ranked No. 14 overall and No. 3 among point guards. To round out Kentucky’s trio of signees, Bryce Hopkins came in at No. 33 overall and No. 11 among small forwards.

RSCI – pronounced “risky” – takes the top 100 recruiting rankings from VC, ESPN, Rivals and 247Sports and assigns points to each player based on their position on each list. The No. 1 overall prospect is given 100 points, No. 2 gets 99 points, No. 3 gets 98, and so on all the way down to No. 100 getting one point. The service combines all four scores and sorts the players in descending order based on that overall total.

In short, the RSCI final rankings are a collection of expert opinions across all major recruiting outlets, not just one.

Here is the entire top 30, which features a few interesting ties in total points near the top of the list:

1. Chet Holmgren – Gonzaga (400 points)
