Nashville, TN (Future150) -- Before the start of the high school basketball season, Future150 staff decided that it is the perfect time to unveil our latest class of 2015 national rankings. There are many "movers and sliders" in the update, as well as several new faces who proved their worth over AAU season as well as Future150 Camp season.

The Updated Future150 Top 5 in 2015:

1.) Malik Newman - It's been a nearly unstoppable task for anyone to dethrone Newman in the class. Wherever he goes, no matter how big the stage, he just keeps producing. A truly elite talent.

2.) Stephen Zimmerman - If there is anyone in the class who can potentially unseat Newman at the top, it's the 7-footer. Long, athletic, and skilled, he never backs down from competition.

3.) Ivan Rabb - Another prospect with the potential to sneak into the top ranking over the next several months is the 6-foot-9 power forward. What we love most about him is his motor and his ability to use both hands around the rim. 

4.) Diamond Stone - A true post player, Stone is a phenomenal low post passer who has an excellent skillset with the ability to step out and knock down jump shots. His skills have him wanted by every big name program in the country.

5.) Carlton Bragg - New to the top 5 is the 6-foot-9 combo forward. His skillset is developing rapidly, and he has shown the ability to dominate games regularly at this point. Scary upside for the Ohio native.

Next in Line...

6.) Skal Labissiere - Knocking on the door of the top 5 is the 6-foot-10 power forward with a versatile set of skills. He has polished moves in the post as well as a smooth jump shot, which is consistent out to 15 feet.

7.) Ben Simmons - One intriguing prospect who could see his stock soar over the coming months is the Montverde Academy (FL) small forward. Word from the Sunshine State is that his body and game have both been rapidly improving since his arrival in the United States.

8.) Cheick Diallo - One of the most dominating performances from the 2013 AAU season came from Diallo at the NBA Players Camp, where he outworked and outproduced every other big name prospect at the camp.

9.) Tyler Dorsey - The 6-foot-4 combo guard is another prospect who is picking up a head of steam as we get ready to start the high school basketball season. Look for him to continue to light up scoreboards across southern California.

10.) Charles Matthews - One of the most impressive scorers in the class is the St. Rita (IL) combo guard. Illinois and Kentucky are just two of the schools vying for his services currently.
