Updated 2014 Top 100

There's a new No. 1 recruit in the 2014 recruiting class.

After a dominant junior season for Chicago (Ill.) Whitney Young, Jahlil Okafor has jumped from No. 3 in the class to the top spot.

Okafor, a 6-foot-9, 260-pound center, is the top post scorer in not only the junior class, but the entire country. Playing a national schedule, Okafor has dismantled the competition this season.

Okafor's scoring package is expanding. He has a terrific set of hands, great scoring touch and can score on the block in a variety of ways. On top of that, he's a very good rebounder and has added a mid-range jump shot to his arsenal.

After Okafor comes a pair of talented point guards – Tyus Jones and Emmanuel Mudiay.

Jones, a 6-foot, 170-pounder out of Apple Valley (Minn.) Senior, has drawn comparisons to Chris Paul. A true floor general, Jones can run a team and is a great passer. He's also developed his ability to score, specifically his long-range shooting.

Mudiay possesses impressive physical attributes at the point guard position. Standing 6-foot-3, he has very good speed, is a high-level athlete and continues to progress at the lead guard spot.

Trey Lyles finished at No. 4 in the latest rankings. The 6-foot-9, 215-pound power forward is an accomplished scorer at that position. He's skilled, has a jump shot that extends to 22-feet, but is also a very good low block scorer.

Chicago (Ill.) Curie standout Cliff Alexander ranks No. 5 in the 2014 class. A powerfully built big man, Alexander is known for his toughness, rebounding and activity level in the paint.

Chris McCullough, Kevon Looney, Karl Towns, Justise Winslow and Justin Jackson close out Scout.com's 2014 top 10.

The new rankings only include two new five-star prospects – Stanley Johnson and Quentin Snider. Johnson jumped to No. 17, while Snider checked in at No. 24 overall.

The updated 2014 list was expanded from 75 to 100 for the first time, so there are a number of new names. In fact, there are exactly 25 prospects making their debut in Scout.com's rankings.

Vic Law, a standout at Chicago (Ill.) St. Rita, is the highest rated newcomer. Law checks in at No. 48 in the 2014 class.
