Recruiting Rundown Prep Top 10 Powered By National 175: Final Edition

The final edition of the Recruiting Rundown / National 175 Prep Top 10 rankings reflects the amount of parity from PG teams throughout the last few months. Though it’s been clear that Hill Academy and Deerfield make up the top two, shuffling has taken place all over and the battle for the final few spots in Top 10.

With three wins over teams ranked in the most recent StringKing / RR National Top 25, Hill Academy finishes the season undefeated for the first time since the program began playing a full schedule. Western Massachusetts prep powerhouse Deerfield Academy won the New England West I title and checks in at No. 2, while Taft (Conn.) won the Founders League with a key season-ending win over No. 6 Trinity-Pawling (N.Y.) to clinch it earlier in the week.

Scroll below for the rest of the rankings and check back in the first two weeks of June for the All-PG team, which will also be powered by National 175. For nominations, send stats, links and any video to
