    LR- Jaylen Brown - Adidas Gauntlet Indy (Day 1)DraftExpress.com has a new 2016 Mock Draft out and it looks like a Who’s Who of elite players in the high school class of 2015.

    The top five players are Jaylen Brown, Ben Simmons, Diamond Stone, Cheick Diallo and Malik Newman.

    The 6-foot-6 Brown out of Marietta (GA) Wheeler is the No. 1-ranked player in the Class of 2015, according to scout.com.

    Of the players in the Top 10 on DraftExpress, only Simmons (LSU) is committed to college.

    Kentucky remains involved with numerous players in the Top 10, including Brown, Diallo, Newman, No. 6 Ivan Rabb, No. 7 Isaiah Briscoe, No. 8 Brandon Ingram and No. 9 Henry Ellenson. The Wildcats were slated to have home visits Tuesday with both Brown and Newman.
