Nashville, TN (Future150) -- With Memphis White Station High School (TN) star Leron Black remaining the #1 prospect in the latest Future150 rankings of the junior class, it's another feather in the cap of a city absolutely loaded with talent.

Along with Black, the city features three other highly regarded Bluff City prospects sprinkled throughout the rankings.

Minnesota star Tyus Jones holds his spot at #2 in the 2014 class. The Apple Valley High School (MN) star has eclipsed the 1,000 point mark this season, and he is far from done assaulting the competition in his state.

Emmanuel Mudiay checks in at #3 in the rankings. The Texas star has had a big junior year, and a strong spring/summer season could catapult him to the top of our rankings heading into next season.

True post prospect Jahlil Okafor comes in at #4 and remains a model of consistency for his loaded Whitney Young (IL) squad, which features Future150 ranked juniors Paul White and L.J. Peak.

Rounding out the top 5 is Chicago athlete Cliff Alexanderwhose game is a beautiful blend of finesse and power.

Indiana star Trey Lyles stands at #6. Milwaukee Hamilton (WI) star Kevon Looney hold down the position at #7. Stanley Johnson, the most talented junior prospect out west, checks in at #8. Don't be surprised to see him rise even further in the rankings when we do our summer rankings.

#9 in the country is Syracuse bound combo forward Chris McCulloughThe highly skilled 6'10, 220-pounder has as much upside long term than any other prospect in his class, and is one of the most fun kids to watch nationally.

Kentucky Wildcat commitment Karl Towns rounds out the top 10. The recently reclassified big man is a smooth forward who can play three positions on the floor, which is precisely why Coach Cal wanted his pledge so badly.

Several prospects made significant jumps in the rankings due to big junior seasons. Malik Pope (#12), Dwayne Morgan (#19), Isaiah Whitehead (#20), Grayson Allen (#32), Shelton Mitchell (#40), Chris Chiozza (#55), and Zylan Cheatham (#58) all fit that bill.

Another player who made a jump in the rankings was super skilled small forward Riley Norris.  The number one prospect in the state of Alabama holds offers from Kansas State, Arkansas, Alabama, Auburn, Vandy, Stanford, UAB and Georgia.

New to the rankings are Kansas commit Lourawls Nairn (#98), Philadelphia guard Shep Garner (#110),Iowa State commitment Clayton Custer (#111),Michigan forward Jaylen Johnson (#116, and North Carlina guard Gabe DeVoe (#147).
