This national high school basketball ranking combines multiple available polls for a period of time into a single poll, and creates a ranking for each team based on their average ranking, number of times they are ranked in the various polls, the highest ranking that teams has in those polls and the average ranking.

Notes: This week’s poll includes four sources: Hoopniks, ESPN, USA Today and PrepNation. MaxPreps also released polls during this period but I haven’t included them, due to the fact that they segment private academies from public high schools. I am not sure how, or if, I will incorporate their rankings back into the cumulative rankings.
Still not much change at the top of the poll, but a major loss by Huntington Prep this week pushed some significant movement, including dropping Prep from #3 to #9 and introducing Prime Prep, who dealt Huntington their loss, into the rankings at #10. The overall movement of the rankings is relatively consistent, but this week I’ve expanded the list to show the Top 30 True Rank teams just because, well, I have the data and I think it’s interesting. Note that two NC teams, Olympic and West Charlotte, do appear on a few polls but only Olympic has a high enough value to land in the cumulative rankings.
Finally: In the poll listing, the ‘high’ value represents the highest ranking in any poll that team received during the ranking period.
‘Qty’ represents how many polls they were ranked in. ‘AVG’ represents their average ranking in all polls where they were ranked.
