Nashville, TN (Future150) -- Andrew Wiggins is officially the #1 ranked basketball player in the United States, regardless of class, according to Future150. The 6'7" small forward proved this summer that he is the most dominant player at the high school level, showcasing his skills against the best this country has to offer, proving to be better than anyone in his path, including...

...Julius Randle, who is ranked #2 in the senior class. The 6'8", 230-pound Texas prospect is as versatile of a prospect as you will find in the high school ranks. Florida, Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina State, Oklahoma, and Texas are the finalists for his services.

An argument for #1 can be made for Chicago senior Jabari Parker, who was on the shelf for the July evaluation period and didn't get a chance to go against Wiggins or Randle at the Nike Peach Jam. However, as of right now, he slides in at #3 in the rankings. Now that he is healthy, look for a huge senior season by the star small forward.

Aaron Harrison moves down to #4 in the rankings, but the Kentucky commit has as much potential as any athlete in the class, and has improved tremendously over the past year.

Aaron Gordon finished the summer season strong after an ankle injury sidelined him. He is getting Blake Griffin comparisons with his explosive athleticism and endless motor.

Andrew Harrison sits at #6 in the rankings, and is the highest ranked point guard in the senior class. Florida power forward Chris Walker sits at #7 in the country.

Dakari Johnson enters the 2013 rankings for the first time after reclassifying yesterday. The 6'11", 260-pound center is now the highest ranked pure post player in the country, and checks in at #8.

Kentucky commitment James Young is the #9 player in the country, and the electric shooting guard will fit perfectly into John Calipari's system next year.

Closing out the top 10 is Kasey Hill out of Montverde Academy in Florida. The 6'1" lead guard is explosive when going to the basket and is one of the best offensive players in the nation.

Power forward Marcus Lee climbs all the way up to #14 in the rankings, and could wind up making it into Future150's top 10 before the end of his senior season.

Baylor commit Dominic Woodson rounds out the 5-star prospects in the 2013 class, and is right now sitting at #20 in the country.

Phiadelphia point guard Rysheed Jordan (#35) is another high-upside prospect, and the 6'4" point guard continues to climb in our latest national rankings.

Semi Ojeleye climbs nearly 50 spots in the rankings, to #49 overall. The Duke commit is a physical wing player who loves to attack the basket.

There are several players making their debut in the national rankings, including Joel Embiid (#61), Evan Payne (#65), Nino Jackson (#67), Lamarcus White (#99), and Dakarai Allen (#108).
