Murray also announced that he would reclassify from the class of 2016 to 2015. With the move Murray has been slotted as the No. 2 point guard and the No. 12 overall prospect in the class. Kentucky now has a five-man recruiting class that also consists of Scout's No. 1 player Skal Labissiere, five-star guard Isaiah Briscoe, four-star prospect Charles Matthews and JUCO standout Mychal Mulder.. The Murray commitment bumps Kentucky up to No. 2 in Scout's 2015 recruiting class rankings. The Wildcats recruiting class only sits behind Duke. Murray had a strong showing in the prestigious Nike Hoop Summit game in Portland in early April. Murray scored a game high 30 points and led the World Team to a win.
