National Article, AL (Future150) -- The class of 2015 has the potential to be a very good class and heading the way at number 1 in the country is the 6-foot-4 inch silky smooth combo guard Malik Newman.  He is as skilled as they come.  This kid has been on the radar for a long time, playing on the same team as LaQuinton Ross and Rodney Hood as a seventh grader.  He can score at all three levels and has a very mature game at a young age.  Newman can play either guard position at a high level and can dominate the game without scoring, even though he averaged 23 points a game in his freshman season.  Newman's skills do not come as a surprise, his dad Heratio Webster was a stud at Mississippi State in 1996-98.  Newman has been dominating basketball in the south for a long time and look for him to be a household name in the rest of the country very soon.           

At number 2 is 6-foot-10 inch power forward named Steve Zimmerman. Zimmerman currently plays with 2012 standout Shabazz Muhammad for Bishop Gorman. Zimmerman has a very good skill set and uses his up and under move to perfection.  He also is great at starting the break because of he gets the rebound and advances it up the floor so well.  We aren't the only people who noticed his talent early, UCLA and UNLV have both already offered him a scholarship. At number 3,  Mickey Mitchell  is an athletic lefty who is very skilled and can play multiple positions.  At 6-foot-7 inches, his mix of strength and athleticism sets him apart from a lot of the kids his age.  Mitchell is arguably the best player in his class and will have the whole summer to make that push to number 1.

Number 4 is Karl Towns Jr., a 7-foot power foward who averaged 11 points and 10 rebounds in his freshman campaign.  Towns Jr. plays for St. Josephs in New Jersey, the same school that produced Jason Williams.  Jeremy Treaudo is next on the list at number 5 and is a 6-foot-5 inch shooting guard who uses great balance, athleticism and ball handling when attacking the rim.  Treaudo is under the radar right now, but remember you heard it here first. He is a no brainer high major prospect who going to burst onto the scene. At number 6 is Kejaun Johnsona talented athlete.  The Atlanta product has probably been on the national radar longer than anyone in his class.  This 6-foot-6 inch beast uses his size and strength to dominate his opponent, and is now working his way to the perimeter.

Number 7 is King McClure, a 6-foot-2  inch guard from Texas  who has a very mature body and knows how to use it.  McClure is a very good slasher and finishes well in traffic. He creates his offense through his defense as he causes fits for his opponents while guarding them.  McClure isn’t known for shooting but can extend out to the 3-point line.  Number 8 is Horace Spencer.  Spencer is a 6-foot-8 inch power forward with big time potential.  He has been said to be the number one player the class of 2015, and has made a great stride to make that case legit. He is a very good shot blocker and that allows teammates to gamble on defense. 

Brodricks Jones checks in at number 9 on the list.  Jones is a 6-foot-8 inch power forward from California that rebounds  on both ends very well. His athleticism allows him to run the floor and finish at the rim. The sky is the limit for this prospect who can only go up in our rankings.  Finally on the list at number 10 is Brandon Hutton.  He is a hard-nosed 6-foot-4 inch wing that can play inside or out.  Hutton finishes well around the rim and uses his toughness and athleticism to do so.  Hutton attends Simeon High, the same school that produced Derrick Rose and currently has arguably the best player in the class of 2013 in Jabari Parker.
