Kentucky has two top-15 signatories, as well as a third in the top 40 in the final rankings of the Recruitment Services Consensus Index (RSCI).

RSCI, which combines the rankings of all well-known recruiting experts into one consensus ranking, has Daimion Collins ranked 12th and 5th among power forwards and TyTy Washington at 14th and 3rd. among the leaders. Rounding out the trio of Kentucky signatories, Bryce Hopkins came in 33rd overall and 11th among small forwards.

RSCI – pronounced “at risk” – takes the top 100 recruiting rankings from VC, ESPN, Rivals and 247Sports and awards points to each player based on their position on each roster. Global prospect # 1 gets 100 points, # 2 gets 99 points, # 3 gets 98, and so on until # 100 gets a point. The service combines the four scores and sorts the players in descending order based on that aggregate total.

In short, the final RSCI ranking is a collection of expert opinions on all the major recruiting sites, not just one.
