Updated Prep Circuit Power 50 Rankings: VOLUME 6 (March 12)

By Prep Circuit Staff, 03/12/19, 1:15PM PDT


The high school season is about at it's conclusion, and while there are a few newcomers, the majority of the rankings held firm.

The top five remain unchanged after McEachern won the 7A State Championship. In an unfortunate change-of-heart, the Indians will be turning down their bid to the 2019 GEICO Nationals due to having prior obligations. Heralded junior Sharife Cooper will be competing in the U16 USA Mini-Camp, while Auburn commit Isaac Okoro will be preparing for the Nike Hoop Summit in early April.

La Lumiere (2), IMG Academy (3), Montverde Academy (4), Oak Hill (6), Wasatch Academy (7), Sunrise Christian (11) and University School (13) earned the other seven bids to GEICO.

Legacy Early College (SC) breaks back into the poll after winning the USA National Prep Championship, while Hamilton Heights moves into the top 20 after winning the NACA Sports Championship.

Scroll down for the full rankings, and check back in late March our coverage of the McDonald's All-American game and the GEICO Nationals.
