I think you shouldn't be focusing too much in the tier, there are many areas that each solo top is strong at. For example, while Shen has strong global control, he isn't that strong in lane, and he lacks the ability to farm and push really quick unless he has ionic spark or wit's end
On the other hand, while Renekton is so much weaker in term of global control, he offers a really strong early and mid game, allowing him to dominate most solo top, push turrets down for map control, and often can gank other lanes easily. (Also can assist jungler for counter jungling)
I recommend buying Yorick (strong lane, strong ultimate), Rumble, Nidalee (AD), Jayce, Olaf, Jax, Irelia
All these solo top have areas that they are strong at. Olaf can run straight to the enemy carries, Jax can often do a lot of damage while being extremely tanky, Irelia is basically unstoppable by cc, etc.
