The masterminds behind Scout.com’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.

    This does make me feel better. Imagine getting the #1 recruit at any point in the pre-Cal era? We’d be crazy excited.
