Nashville, TN (Future150) -- With another AAU season in the books, and high school basketball fast approaching, we decided that it's time to update our national rankings for the 2015 class.

While there were several big movers in the class, there was no prospect who impressed us as much as Wheeler (GA) and Game Elite (GA) small forward Jaylen Brown.

Always known for his elite athleticism, he used this year to show that he has expanded his game and has become a player who can score on all three levels with ease. What's even more scary is that he is far from a finished product, and if his jump shot continues to improve, he will be an absolutely lethal scorer at the next level.

Montverde Academy (FL) forward Ben Simmons remains the #1 player in the class, and we don't see that changing. There isn't a player in 2015 with the skills and versatility that the 6'9" wing possesses, and he should cement his status while playing a national schedule for perhaps the number one ranked team in America.

Callaway (MS) star guard Malik Newman comes in at #2 in the country and will also get a chance to compete on a national level this winter, and perhaps along the way, regain his spot as the top ranked player in the class. An absolutely lethal scorer, he will be an instant impact player at the next level.

Rising to #4 in the nation is skilled 6'11" power forward Skal Labissiere, who shredded the summer circuit with his ability to play both inside and out. Baylor, Georgetown, Kentucky, Memphis, North Carolina & Tennessee are all in the hunt for his services.

Rounding out the top five is Las Vegas Bishop Gorman (NV) big man Chase Jeter. At 6-foot-10, the agile post has improved as much as any prospect in the 2015 class over the past 12 months, thanks to his improved low post scoring ability, added upper-body strength and aggressivness. 

Trending Up:

Brewster Academy (NH) SG and Louisville commit Donovan Mitchell makes an astronomical jump from #139 all the way to #31 in the class, using his athleticism and long range shooting ability to impress all summer long.

Carolina Wolves 6'6" shooting guard Tevin Mack continues to rise, moving from #46 to #40 in the class. His best asset right now is his ability to shoot the basketball, especially over the top of the defense.

Another prospect who has made significant strides in his game is Findlay Prep (NV) 6'8" power forward Horace Spencer, who jumps from #65 to #45. A relentless worker on the low block, he is beginning to expand his game, showing off a consistent jump shot out to 18 feet on offense.

Seattle native and Rainier Beach (WA) product Dejounte Murray checks in at #53 nationally after rising 14 spots, and don't be surprised to see him continue to rise over the coming months. The high-upside wing is your typical late bloomer who has a significant amount of growth left in his game.

Boo Williams 2015 wing Chris Clarke had a coming out party this spring and summer, and has been rewarded for his efforts, jumping 44 spots from #108 to #64. The do-it-all small forward is the type of player who always gets results, and he will make one lucky college coach very happy with his commitment.

New to the Rankings:

Q6 All-Stars 6'9" power forward Kerry Blackshear burst onto the scene this AAU season and makes his initial debut in the rankings at #92. Clemson, Georgia, Kansas State, SMU, Vanderbilt & Virginia Tech are the six finalists for his services. 

Virginia commit and 6'8" bruising power forward Jarred Reuter checks in at #122 in the country. Another addition to the rankings is enormous 7'3" center Christ Koumadje, who checks in at #146. The Montverde Academy (FL) big man is looking hard at Georgia Tech, among other schools.
