Harry Giles and Josh Jackson are tied atop the latest USA TODAY High School Sports’ Composite Basketball Rankings for the Class of 2016 as the start of the Early Signing Period starts this week.

USA TODAY High School Sports has taken the rankings from 247 Sports, ESPN, Rivals and Scout and averaged them to rank the top 100 players. A player who is not ranked by a particular service receives the maximum number for that service. For example, a player not ranked in the Rivals 150 would receive 150. The number would be 100 for ESPN, 247 for 247 Sports and 100 for Scout.

Giles from Oak Hill Academy (Mouth of Wilson, Va.) is ranked No. 1  by ESPN and Scout, No. 2 by Rivals and No. 3 by 247. Jackson from Prolific Prep (Napa, Calif.) is No. 1 by 247 and Rivals, No. 2 by Scout and No. 3 by ESPN.

Of note, international players such as Thon Maker from Orangeville Prep in Ontario are not included in the rankings. For positions, CG represents combo guard.
