USA TODAY Sports' 2017 Composite Boys Basketball Player Recruiting rankings

USA TODAY Sports has compiled its final composite basketball rankings for the Class of 2017.

RELATED: Michael Porter Jr. is unanimous No. 1 in recruiting rankings

The composite represents the average rankings of the four major recruiting services – 247Sports, ESPN, Rivals and Scout. The lower the average the better. For players who are not ranked by a particular service, the player receives a maximum number based on the way players are ranked for each site beyond the last player (248 for 247, 101 for ESPN and Scout, and 151 for Rivals).

Washington signee Michael Porter Jr., a 6-10 forward from Nathan Hale (Seattle), is the unanimous No. 1. After that, opinions vary.
