First ESPN 100 released for 2016 class

The 2016 basketball recruit rankings have expanded from the ESPN 60 to the ESPN 100, and there's a new No. 1. National recruiting director Paul Biancardi joins ESPN's Phil Murphy to discuss notable movers.

The Class of 2016 is a potent group, with star power up and down the ESPN 100, especially at the top. And the top is how most classes are remembered.

This group is similar in talent to the 2013 class. In 2013, there were three prospects in the conversation for the No. 1 spot -- Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker and Julius Randle. It was a photo finish, with Wiggins first, Parker second and Randle third. This race will be as fluid as they enter the July evaluation period.
