Prep Circuit Power 25 Rankings: VOL. 5 (Jan.2)

By Prep Circuit, 01/03/18, 6:30PM EST


A ton of action went down over the Holiday break, with three teams separating themselves from the pack.

Montverde (18-0) stayed put at No. 1, winning the Iolani Classic and Beach Ball Classic after taking home a Championship in China. The Eagles were led by senior superstar RJ Barrett. The 6-foot-7 Duke commit ended his Holiday spree in style, racking up 27 points, 10 rebounds and seven assist in a BBC Championship win over Long Island Lutheran.

Oak Hill (21-0) took home the Chick-Fil-A Classic and the Les Schwab Invitational, riding the star power of Keldon and Keyontae Johnson. The Warriors are loaded top to bottom, and head coach Steve Smith and company have been assisted greatly by Will Richardson's development into a true point guard. They'll suit up next at the Bass Pro Tournament of Champions, facing national contenders La Lumiere (IN), Wasatch Academy (UT) and Christ the King (NY).

University School (14-0) is arguably the hottest team in the country. The fast-rising Sharks won the loaded City of Palms Classic, backing it up with another Championship at the John Wall Holiday Classic.

Memphis East (TN) drops back two spots after falling to University School, with St. Benedict's (NJ) skyrocketing up to No. 5 after a terrific start to their 2017-18 campaign.

Bishop Montgomery (CA) and Garfield (WA) make their debut in the top ten, and the two west coast powerhouses will have a great chance to continue their upward trend, as no one has really given them a test up to this point in the season.

DeMatha (MD), Richland (WA) and Oak Ridge (FL) all join the rankings, with Paul VI (VA) rejoining the top 25 after a one-week absence.
