Birmingham, AL (Future150) -- The national rankings are always the topic of conversation among players and parents around the country.  Future150 was out all Spring evaluating the 2017 class.  The month of May was filled with a ton of shoe company events. After watching talent over Memorial Day weekend, we are ready to unveil its updated rankings going into the dog days of Summer.

There's a new #1 player in the country and his name is PF Wendell Carter Jr. out of Atlanta, GA.  His game has blossomed tremendously over the last year and his aggression has gone to another level. After his huge play during the USA's, Carter Jr. is our pick for the top over all spot.  

Taking the #2 spot is the San Diego, CA product C DeAndre Ayton. Formerly at number one, Ayton falls one spot because he just did not play that much in the Spring live period.  Coming off an injury during high school ball, he was tentative and cautious when attacking the rim.  You can definitely tell he has the talent once his confidence returns.

The #3 player is SG Michael Porter Jr. out of Columbia, MO.  Porter Jr. is 6-foot-8 inches tall and very skilled.  He can shoot the ball from anywhere on the floor and is a nightmare match up for smaller wings.  Porter Jr. has the pedigree and composure to be great.  

The Houston-native SF Jarred Vanderbilt checks in at #4. Vanderbilt is super long, wiry and athletic.  He loves scoring on all three levels and is most effective in the mid range game.  At 6-foot-8 inches, he creates a match-up problem for smaller guards. His overall length is his greatest attribute.

At #5 in the rankings is the best point guard in the class Troy Brown out of Las Vegas.  Brown at 6-foot-5 inches has prototype size and athleticism, which every coach wants running the show.  His court vision and ability to go get a bucket anytime is what makes him special. 

Billy Preston earned a new five star ranking.  The #6 player in the nation continues to dominate event after event.  He too has preformed well during the Spring evaluation and has carried it over to the beginning of Summer.

Rounding out the top 10 at #7 is the Dallas product by way of Las Vegas CF PJ Washington.  He drops a few spots after a slow spring and switching from UA back to Team Penny on the Nike circuit. Once he got settled in, he looked like the player we saw last summer.  The #8 player is headed to North Carolina to play his college ball.  His name is PG Jalek Felton.  Felton is smart, athletic, and coachable.  He will fit in perfect with what the Tar Heels need him for.

Number nine is a newcomer to the top 10, SF Gary Trent Jr. from Apple Valley, MN.  Trent Jr. had a huge Spring evaluation session.  He is the leading scorer in the Nike EYBL and has followed that up with great play at the USA's. The Mansfield, MA product, SG Jermaine Samuels checks in at #10 on our list.  

Big Movers:

SG John Petty to From #34 to #17
SG Hamidou Diallo Unranked to #26
PG Quade Green to From #58 to #37
CG Jamal Johnson From #80 from #42
PF Ruot Monyyong Unranked to #47
PG Charles O'Bannon Jr. From #82 to #51
SF Chaundee Brown From #90 to #52
SF Royce Hamm Unranked to #71
SF Galen Alexander Unranked to #92
