The final rankings are in for the 2015 basketball recruiting class, and Kentucky landed the nation’s top player.

Skal Labissiere sky rocketed up ranking boards this summer after dominant performances at the Nike Hoops Summit and Jordan Brand Classic.

The versatile 6-10 center anchors another top-five recruiting class for the Wildcats that includes fellow five-star player and top point guard prospect Isaiah Briscoe, four-star scorer Charles Matthews, and premier JUCO transfer Mychal Mulder.

Along with the six returning players from last season’s historic squad, the new UK recruits will create another formidable force in Lexington this fall, but John Calipari might not be finished bolstering his roster.

Recruiting guru Evan Daniels of joined KSTV today to discuss the Class of 2015, what makes Labissiere the top player in the nation, and which other targets could be joining Big Blue Nation before the start of next season.
