SkalCat The masterminds behind's recruiting rankings released the final rankings for the 2015 class today and Skal Labissiere moved up to take the No. 1 spot. He passed LSU's Ben Simmons, the former No. 1 player in the class, and Ivan Rabb, who fell to No. 5 in the new list. Small forwards Brandon Ingram and Jaylen Brown moved to No. 3 and 4 respectively, behind Labissiere and Simmons. In "ReSkalibrating the Rankings" -- See what he did there? -- Rob Harrington wrote, "Labissiere’s measurables are top-notch. At 6-11 and a possessing a standing reach of more than nine feet, he has very impressive length. He’s also reasonably explosive, highly mobile and fluid, and a genuine face-up threat. It’s those factors in combination that have made him a scouts’ darling, even if his current production is spottier than one might expect for the No. 1 prospect." Labissiere's future teammate, Isaiah Briscoe, is No. 12 overall and the No. 2 point guard behind Duke's Derryck Thornton, formerly of the 2016 class. Charles Matthews is ranked No. 75 and No. 22 amongst the shooting guards.
