The Top 25 Class of 2015

Like the class of 2014, the class of 2015 is loaded with talented players. As many as 15 of these kids could be on a Division I roster in a few years. Several already have scholarship offers from major programs.

1. Camron Justice, Knott County Central, 6-2, G

Justice averaged 25.5 points per game last season, as he led the Patriots to their second consecutive 14th Region championship. He’s the favorite to win the 2015 Mr. Basketball award. Justice holds scholarship offers from Tennessee, Western Kentucky, UAB and Morehead State.

2. James Bolden, Covington Holmes, 6-2, G

Bolden entered the season as a relatively unknown. By the end of the season, he solidified himself as one of the premier players in the state. He averaged 19 points, five rebounds and four assists per game. Xavier, Purdue and Ohio have already offered him a scholarship, while other schools, including Kentucky, have shown interest. Bolden led Holmes to a 9th championship this past season.

3. Jaqualis Matlock, Hopkinsville, 6-5, F

Matlock averaged 14 points and 9.7 rebounds per game this past season, as he helped lead the Tigers to a 2nd Region championship. Several of the nation’s top college programs are showing interest, including Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Oregon and Indiana.

4. Raymond Spalding, Trinity, 6-9, F/C

Spalding only averaged 2.7 points and 3.6 rebounds per game last season but he might have more potential than any other player on this list. Louisville, Kentucky, Indiana, Oklahoma State, Tennessee, West Virginia, Western Kentucky and Wisconsin have shown interest.

5. Dikembe Dixson, Ashland Blazer, 6-6, F

Dixson averaged 19.3 points and 8.1 rebounds per game last season.

6. Jeremiah Bell, Butler, 5-10, PG

With Demetrius McReynolds graduating, look for Bell to increase his scoring.

7. Michael Stafford, Trinity, 6-0, PG

The Shamrocks lose several guards from last season. Expect Stafford to increase his production.

8. Evan Hall, Knott County Central, 6-7, F/C

Hall averaged 11.7 points and 7.2 rebounds per game last season.

9. Matt Rose, Lexington Christian, 6-6, F

Rose averaged 12.3 points and 6.4 rebounds per game last season. Davidson, Valparaiso, Air Force and Western Kentucky have shown interest.

10. Jalen Perry, Ballard, 6-2, G

Perry is one of the most athletic guards in the state. He averaged 6.6 points per game last season.

11. Zac Baxter, South Laurel, 6-0, G

12. Isaiha Collier, Pulaski Southwestern

13. Jeremiah Tisdale, Henry Clay
