New Northwestern point guard commit Jordan Lathon added a fourth star and rose 12 spots in the latest Rivals rankings for the Class of 2018.

Lathon, a 6-foot-4 standout from Grandview (Mo.) who had been a three-star prospect, jumped from No. 128 to No. 116 in the latest Rivals150 rankings released today.

His Northwestern classmate, forward Pete Nance from Akron (Ohio) Revere, dropped from 39th to 56th but retained his fourth star and is still the highest ranked commitment of the Chris Collins era.
