The new top five consists of Carey and Edwards, followed by Memphis signee James Wiseman, uncommitted guard Cole Anthony and Washington commitment Isaiah Stewart.

Louisville has five commitments in the new rankings: McDonald’s All-American Samuell Williamson at No. 25, Aidan Igiehon at No. 51, Jae’lyn Withers at No. 82, Louisville Trinity guard David Johnson at No. 101 and Josh Nickelberry at No. 107.

Allen and Johnson are joined in the Rivals 150 by fellow Kentucky high school star and Xavier commitment Kyky Tandy at No. 103. Tandy, a University Heights standout, moved up 14 spots in the new rankings.
