Four major recruiting services have updated their class of 2015 rankings over the past couple of weeks, and all four players with UK scholarship offers are unanimous top-15 prospects.

Mississippi guard Malik Newman is the closest thing to a consensus No. 1. Newman is ranked either No. 1 or No. 2 by all four services — Scout, Rivals, ESPN and 24/7 Sports. Las Vegas center Stephen Zimmerman is No. 1 in the Scout.com rankings. Ivan Rabb, who does not have a UK offer, is No. 1 in the ESPN Top 60.
