Ulis is now the No. 35 overall prospect in the Class of 2014, according to 247Sports analyst Jerry Meyer. The 5-foot-9 point guard had been ranked No. 53 in the previous update. No other player in the Top 50 moved as many spots as Ulis.

Karl Towns Jr. remains UK’s highest-rated signee in the 247Sports rankings, holding steady at No. 10 overall. Trey Lyles dropped two spots to No. 18. Devin Booker moved up one spot to No. 30.

The top five players in the class, according to Meyer, are Southern Methodist signee Emmanuel Mudiay, Kansas signee Cliff Alexander, Arizona signee Stanley Johnson, Kansas signee Kelly Oubre and uncommitted UK target Myles Turner.

Five players from Kentucky are among the Top 247 players in the class: Louisville signee Quentin Snider (No. 51), Butler signee Kelan Martin (No. 109), Marshall signee Shane Hall (No. 172) and uncommitted Henry Clay star Jordan Green (No. 232).
