Recruiting Rundown National High School Power Rankings, 5/6

SPMay’s finally here, so the playoffs are getting underway in areas like D.C., Baltimore, Colorado and Pennsylvania while other leagues get close to wrapping up regular season play. Craziness has continued in the IAC and MIAA – five teams are ranked between the two leagues, though postseason results will sort things out.

Nationally, the top four remains the same as it was in last week’s rankings, though Darien (Conn.) has made a move up to No. 5 after a Georgetown Prep loss last Friday to St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes. Grabbing the MIAA’s top seed (and a first round bye) by virtue of tiebreakers, McDonogh goes from No. 16 to No. 12, while surging St. Paul’s (the No. 2 seed) re-enters the rankings at No. 15. In New Jersey, Delbarton (N.J.) also re-enters this week at No. 25 after a series of big wins in past weeks.
