Blake Barnett??? Really??? Not only was he not “No. 1” in 2015, regardless of what ESPN says (and they’re not one of the better rating services, given that they put very little in terms of resources into scouting high school players), he wasn’t even No. 1 in Southern California.
A kid named Josh Rosen, a UCLA Soph, and likely No. 1 pick in the 2018 NFL draft, was the best QB in the 2015 class, and everyone who knows anything about quarterbacks thought so. It wasn’t even close.
