Team Breakdowns: 1-1011-2021-3031-4041-50

The final 10 teams have been unveiled, and, as such, there is a Preseason High School Top 50. In total, there are 50 teams from 19 different states with Florida and California leading the way with 10 teams and nine teams, respectively. Florida and California also represent the first two teams in the rankings in Tampa Jesuit (Fla.) at No. 1 and Notre Dame (Calif.) at No. 2. This goes to show that the talent-rich states are especially deep this year, including the top team in the land. 

Between the Top 50 teams there are 18 defending state champions, led by Tampa Jesuit. The top five includes DeSoto Central (Miss.) at No. 3, North Gwinnett (Ga.) at No. 4, and JSerra (Calif.) at No. 5. There is a ton of talent with the teams in the Top 50 which includes 15 total PG All-Americans represented throughout these teams. Blaze Jordan is on the highest-ranked team that includes PG All-Americans while Harvard-Westlake at No. 9 includes the only duo of PG All-Americans in Pete Crow-Armstrong and Drew Bowser. 

As always with the high school season, there are a number of high profile events to keep an eye on that will feature a ton of ranked teams. The PG High School Showdown features nine preseason ranked teams and will take place March 5-7 in Hoover, Ala. The National High School Invitational (NHSI) features 12 preseason ranked teams and will take place April 1-4 in Cary, N.C. The Boras Classic South will feature five preseason ranked teams, all from Southern California, on April 14-17.
