Nashville, TN (Future150) -- Another rankings update, and there is still no one in the 2015 class who seems ready or able to dethrone guard Malik Newman.

The 6'3" combo guard, fresh off winning a state championship for his Callaway High School (MS) team, has taken his momentum into the Nike EYBL, where he is leading the league in scoring at 23.7 points per game, while also chipping in 5.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. 

His domination over the past five months seems to be furthering him from the pack of talented prospects in his class, including athletic post player and #2 prospect in our rankings, Ivan Rabb.

The 6'9" athlete is also having a big EYBL season, averaging 12.9 points, 11.2 rebounds, and 3.2 blocks per game, and as of right now, he seems like the only viable candidate to overttake Malik Newman as king of the rankings anytime soon.

Shooting all the way up the rankings to #3 nationally is Stephen Zimmerman. The west coast post has had a huge spring and his improved versatility on the floor is what has really impressed the Future150 staff. He looks like a top 5 prospect who is here to stay.

Big risers in the latest rankings update who have jumped into the top 10 include Skal Labissiere (#5), Carlton Bragg (#7), and Daniel Giddens (#8).

Kevaughn Allen continues his rise in the rankings, coming in at #15 in the country.

Memphis guard Marlon Hunter has used a big spring to push his way up to #51, and Florida point guard Corey Sanders his risen to #55 in the United States.

There were also several prospects who impressed us enough this spring to merit national rankings for the first time. A few hidden gems who we discovered included New York jumping jack Donovan Mitchell , Louisiana monster post Blake Paul (#82), and sweet shooting Florida guard Matt Milon (#85).
