National High School Top 50: March 21

The theme of this week’s ranking update is recognizing the amount of outstanding baseball being played in the state of Georgia. Eight teams in the Top 50 are from the Peach State and Pope High School jumps into the top 10 at No. 7 as the highest ranked team in the state. One of the more intriguing teams is No. 13 North Gwinnett, which is closing out the month of March having not lost yet during its season.

Pope is the only new entry to the top 10, and there were five new entries to the list in total: Horizon (Ariz.), Columbus (Fla.), Aledo (Texas), Decatur (Ala.), and Blanchard (Okla.). All five teams have been wildly impressive out of the gate with Horizon staking the claim as the top-ranked school in the state of Arizona, unseating Chaparral.

North Gwinnett made the biggest jump, from No. 38 to No. 13, while Owasso (Okla.) is not far behind, jumping 25 spots to find themselves at No. 18.

Three of the top five teams are from the state of California: No. 2 Huntington Beach, No. 4 Buchanan and No. 5 Orange Lutheran. The West Coast has been wildly successful this season with standouts such as Hagen Danner of Huntington Beach and Garrett Mitchell of Orange Lutheran.

Team USA’s National High School Invitational (NHSI) will start on Wednesday and will pit several of the top 50 teams against each other. Stay tuned to Perfect Game as David Rawnsley will be on hand providing scouting reports. That event, along with conference play around the country, are sure to impact the rankings moving forward.
