Trent Thompson of Westover (Ga.) High School is the 2015 No. 1 recruit in the HSS composite rankings. / Kevin Liles – USA TODAY Sports

Who’s No. 1? Unlike in recent years, the various major recruiting services didn’t have a definitive No. 1 player.

With so many national recruiting outlets, which player is No. 1? Perhaps the best method is to try to build a consensus opinion. We’ve taken the final rankings of four top recruiting services — ESPN.com, Rivals.com, 247Sports.com and Scout.com — and averaged each player’s spot to assemble a composite list of the top 50 prospects in the 2015 class based on average ranking.

Defensive end Byron Cowart from Armwood in Seffner, Fla., got the top spot in the final rankings from ESPN and Rivals. Martez Ivey, an offensive tackle from Apopka, Fla., was the only player in the class to make the top five in all four services. But neither was No. 1 in our composite.

Here’s how the top 50 recruits stack up.
