UK signee Skal Labissiere has been named the No. 1 overall recruit in the class of 2015 by Rivals.com, which posted its final rankings Wednesday.
Labissiere — a 7-footer from Haiti now living in the Memphis area — wowed scouts and recruiting analysts during the recent all-star circuit with his versatile and ever-evolving game. He signed with Kentucky in November.
He is John Calipari’s first No. 1 recruit in the Rivals.com rankings since John Wall signed with the Wildcats in 2009. Former UK players Anthony Davis, Nerlens Noel and Julius Randle were all ranked No. 2 in the final Rivals rankings in their respective classes.
