March 14 Top 25Top 150 Junior College Prospects

We ranked Chipola (Fla.) No. 1 at the start of the season and that continues to look like the right pick as they retain the top spot in the rankings yet again this week with a record of 27-4 and an undefeated conference record of 8-0. They may face their biggest test to date this week, however, when they battle Northwest Florida State in a conference series. Northwest Florida State is right on the cusp of the rankings and will be an excellent test for Chipola. 

The rest of the top 5 features some familiar faces, though in a bit different order. Jones County (Miss.) remains No. 2 and also remains perfect with a 20-0 record to this point. Connors State (Okla.) checks in at No. 3, up one spot, with a 21-3 record, while Santa Rosa (Calif.) also climbs one spot to No. 4 with a 17-4 mark out in California. Sante Fe (Fla.) tumbled two spots but remains in the top 5 at No. 5 with a record of 23-8.

The biggest riser this week is Dyersburg State (Tenn.), who, with a record of 26-2 overall and 9-0 in conference play, have absolutely torn through the competition thus far. They jump all the way from No. 19 into the top 10 at No. 10. LSU-Eunice (Lous.) climbed a spot to No. 6, Walters State (Tenn.) jumped two spots to No. 7, Chattahoochee Valley (Tenn.) slipped a pair to No. 8, and San Jac (Texas) dropped a spot to round out the top 10 at No. 9. 

Newcomers this week are Northeast Oklahoma A&M, who checks in at No. 17 with a record of 22-3, San Mateo (Calif.) at No. 20 with a record of 18-4 and Murray State (Okla.) at No. 24 with a record of 20-4. 

Other notable risers were McLennan (Texas), who jumped from No. 15 to No. 11 and Orange Coast (Calif.) who jumped up two spots from No. 18 to No. 16. 

Rankings are based on games through Sunday, March 19.
