Recruiting Rundown’s High School Top 25 – Week 5, April 19th

C8wfiq0XgAQ04U5
After Top 25 wins over Bullis and St. Ignatius Prep, Landon (Md.) takes over the No. 1 spot from Hill Academy (Ont.), pushing its record to 12-0 just over halfway through the Bears’ season. Elsewhere, little change occurred within the Top 10, besides Victor (N.Y.) sliding in with a week of solid tests against Midwest prep notables coming up.

The intrigue continues at the No. 13 spot, with Delbarton (N.J.) having an up-and-down week, as the Green Wave fell to in-state foe Seton Hall Prep (Pa.) on the road by a goal before dispatching St. Anthony’s (N.Y.) by nine goals, a team that likely would have appeared in the Top 10. The Friars move to No. 15 after knocking off Boys’ Latin, now ranked No. 16, with Bullis (Md.) moving to No. 14 despite falling to top-ranked Landon earlier in the week.

Salisbury (Conn.) dropped its first two games of the season, but had a strong week by beating Trinity-Pawling and then-No. 10 Haverford. No. 17 St. Paul’s (Md.) and No. 23 Calvert Hall (Md.) re-enter the Top 25 this week after wins to open the MIAA season.
