With the four major recruiting services having released their final rankings for the 2016, USA TODAY High School Sports has compiled a final update to the composite rankings.

The rankings reflect the average of 247Sports, ESPN, Rivals and Scout. The lower the number, the better the ranking. Players who are not ranked by a particular service receive the maximum number for that service: 247 for 247, 300 for ESPN, 250 for Rivals and 300 for Scout.

To no surprise, Paramus (N.J.) Catholic defensive tackle Rashan Gary is the No. 1 player. Gary was a unanimous choice among the four ranking services. Wake Forest (N.C.) defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence is second; he was ranked as the No. 2 player in three of the four.
