No change in this week’s top two, with Findlay and Montverde locking those positions down. But Prime Prep has finally started getting some recognition, ranking as high as 4th and averaging at 5th in this week’s cumulative poll. Simeon has exploded back up into the rankings with a healthy Jabari Parker, Huntington Prep and Oak Hill continue to languish, and Arlington Country Day works it’s way back up a few more spots.
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.
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.
