Nashville, TN (Future150) -- Seven schools are still in the hunt for the #1 recruit in the rising senior class, Minnesota point guard Tyus Jones.

Baylor, Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan State, Ohio State, and Minnesota are all in the hunt for the elite guard, and it's easy to understand why.

The 6'1" scoring guard is a program-changer and will start from day one at whatever school he chooses as his future home. Not only can he score, but he is a crafty passer with eyes in the back of his head. He plays with excellent pace and affects the game in several different ways. 

What makes him an even more appealing prospect is the fact that he plans to be a package deal with our #4 prospect, Jahlil Okafor.

Kevon Looney slides into the top five, stamping his name on the #2 spot after big performances at the Gulf Coast Hoop Fest and the Spiece Run N' Slam. He has put on some muscle and can be an effective power or small forward at the next level. We love his upside.

Coming in at #3 in the rankings is Dallas Prime Prep (TX) prospect Emmanuel Mudiay, perhaps the most athletic point guard prospect in the country, regardless of class.

Coming in at #5 is Trey Lyles, who flexed his muscle at the Spiece Run N' Slam last weekend. 

Several prospects proved to our staff that they were undervalued this winter and spring, and we rewarded them by moving them up in the latest rankings.

Isaiah Whitehead (#11) is knocking on the door of the top 10 after his dominating performance at the Pittsburgh Jam Fest, and sharpshooter Devin Booker (#16) makes his way into the top 20 for the first time.

Other prospects who climbed in the rankings include: Chris Chiozza (#20), Goodluck Okonoboh (#36), Adonys Henriquez (#52), and Kaleb Joseph (#59).

New to the Future150 top 100 are Texas products Damiyne Durham (#60) and Myles Turner (#76), Louisiana's James Thompson (#82), and Team Charlotte combo guard James Demery (#92).
