USC-bound quarterback Jake Garcia leaves California, transfers to Georgia power Valdosta - OFFICIAL
USC-bound quarterback Jake Garcia leaves California, transfers to Georgia power Valdosta
When the California Interscholastic Federation announced its plan to switch its 2020 football season to 2021 last month due to the coronavirus pandemic, many of the state's top senior recruits planned to sit out. That won't be the case for four-star quarterback Jake Garcia, who will transfer from La Habra (Calif.) to Valdosta (Ga.)

As first reported by 247Sports' Greg Biggins, the 6-foot-3, 195-pound senior instead will go from one of the top teams in Southern California to the nation's winningest program in Georgia — a distance of 2,300 from his home town. 

Garcia made the move because he wants to play his senior season — he needs the reps he said — and still enroll into college early. He plans to graduate from high school in December.

The agile and strong-armed quarterback is currently committed to the University of Southern California and is the No. 4 pro-style signal-caller in the Class of 2021, according to 247Sports composite.

"I'm really excited about the decision," Garcia told Biggins. "For me, it was big to play as a senior. I need those game reps and this is going to be a big for me mentally as well in terms of preparing for college."

His new team made headlines back in April when they hired Rush Propst as head coach.

The former reality TV star on MTV's popular "Two-A-Days" was previously at Hoover (Ala.) and Colquitt County (Moultrie, Ga.) and won a combined seven state championships. He has gone 313-93 during his 30-year career as head coach.

Valdosta began the season ranked in the MaxPreps preseason Top 100 at No. 94. Expect them to make a significant jump after adding Garcia under center. Another factor in moving up the team rankings is that several top squads have moved to the spring season. 

The Wildcats went 10-3 last season and will be in contention to win their first state title since 2016 with the talent they have heading into the fall. They've won a nation's best 928 games since their 1913 inception, claimed 24 state and six mythical national crowns.

They have one of the toughest in-state schedules and open with last year's 5A runner-ups, Warner Robins on Sep. 5. Valdosta also has games scheduled against two more preseason Top 100 teams: Colquitt County and Lowndes (Valdosta).

Expect MaxPreps' first rankings for the fall season to come out after the Florida High School Athletic Association announces its plans are for football on Aug. 14.

Georgia announced on July 20 its plan to start the season two weeks late on Sept. 4 due to the virus. It currently plans to play a 10-game regular season with full playoffs.

Garcia began his prep career at Long Beach Poly (Calif.) then played two seasons at Narbonne (Harbor City, Calif.). He transferred in January to La Habra, where he planned to finish things out, but the change in seasons altered that path.

"With not just California football shut down but the entire West Coast pretty much — Arizona, Nevada, Washington — I knew I had to leave the region," Garcia told Biggins. "Like I said, I think senior year is really important time to learn and get better. This will be big for my development and I felt this was the best move for me to make long term."

Girls high school basketball rankings: OFFICIAL Top 25 showdown set for Wednesday as No. 1 Lake Highland Prep meets No. 14 Montverde Academy - OFFICIAL
Girls high school basketball rankings: MaxPreps Top 25 showdown set for Wednesday as No. 1 Lake Highland Prep meets No. 14 Montverde Academy
National rankings always include a lot of educated guesswork, as top teams often don't play each other and some have limited local schedules — but this year, obviously, is different. This year, some high school girls basketball teams may not play at all. This year, some states plan to play basketball in the spring. This year, some won't start their season until Feb. 1. This year, some have played their normal schedules.

So how to sort it all out? First, by conceding that this year's rankings will be even more problematic than most, as intersectional games and major events are few and far between. Second, by excluding schools from the rankings that do not begin play until April. Third, by relying more on perceived talent level than on game results — though that said, losses to in-state rivals that in the past could be offset by wins over other nationally-ranked teams will now be more critical when it comes to putting together the MaxPreps Top 25 high school girls basketball rankings.

Of course, no one knows how the season will play out, as state associations and local school districts are making decisions on a daily basis that will affect the teams mentioned below, so schools may appear and disappear from the rankings much more frequently than in previous seasons.
But regardless, here we go...

MaxPreps Top 25 Girls High School Basketball Rankings

1. Lake Highland Prep (Orlando, Fla.)
Record:
10-0 | Last week: 1
Uneasy lies the crown. Point guard Sierra Godbolt tore her ACL and unbeaten No. 14 Montverde Academy is tonight's opponent. The Highlanders only managed 36 points against No. 17 New Hope in a three-point win Dec. 22.

2. Bishop McNamara (Forestville, Md.)
Record: 0-0 | Last week: 2
The first of many teams that has yet to play. An abbreviated season for this uber-talented group is expected to begin around Feb. 1.

3. Westlake (Atlanta)
Record: 6-0 | Last week: 7
A big win against a strong McEachern team was good news for Westlake in the early going, but several intersectional games were canceled over the holidays. The Peach State's best will resume play this week, however.

4. Hopkins (Minnetonka, Minn.)
Record:
0-0 | Last week: 4
Despite the graduation of Paige Bueckers, Hopkins still has one of the most talented rosters in the country. The Royals are expected to begin play this week.

Record: 0-0 | Last week: 5
A perennial fixture in the MaxPreps Top 25 should get under way in mid-January.

Record: 10-0 | Last week: NR
The first newcomer, Mount Notre Dame lands in the top 10 thanks to wins over previously-ranked North Central of Indianapolis and another strong Indiana team, Carmel. And unlike most teams this year, Mount Notre Dame also added another intersectional win, this one over Madison Academy of Alabama.

Record: 0-0 | Last week: 8
In the same league as No. 2 Bishop McNamara, St. John's and Azzi Fudd are still on hold. A February start is anticipated.

Record: 2-0 | Last week: 9
Incarnate Word played two games in early December, but has been shut down since then. An in-state schedule should resume Jan. 14.

Record: 0-0 | Last week: 1
New Jersey teams always start the season later than other states, but this year's Jan. 15 beginning actually is earlier than many.

Record: 16-0 | Last week: 18
Texas, as always, rolls on. After playing 42 games last year (losing one), Cypress Creek has played 16 games already this year. Of those 16 wins, the closest was by 12 points.

Record: 2-0 | Last week: NR
Classen SAS jumps into the rankings thanks to a 50-46 win over previous No. 11 DeSoto. Mark Feb. 11 on the calendar, as that's when a game against No. 13 Norman pops up on the schedule.

Record: 2-0 | Last week: 12
Reynoldsburg's ranking will be tested next week, as unbeaten Newark and once-beaten Pickerington Central (the loss was to Newark) are on tap.

Record: 5-0 | Last week: 13
Norman gets back in full swing with two games next week.

Record: 11-0 | Last week: 23
A big win over Compass Prep of Arizona was a major reason for the jump. An even bigger win is possible tonight against No. 1 Lake Highland Prep.

Record: 0-0 | Last week: 15
A Feb. 1 start is anticipated for a new kid on the MaxPreps Top 25 block.

Record: 18-0 | Last week: 16
Hoover handled unbeaten Hewitt-Trussville on Saturday, and with 18 wins already, is off to a very impressive start.

Record: 4-1 | Last week: 14
It's no disgrace to lose to No. 1 so New Hope drops only three spots this week.

Record: 12-1 | Last week: 11
The loss to No. 11 Classen SAS was balanced by a 62-55 win over previous No. 2 Duncanville — but note that the Duncanville-DeSoto rematch Jan. 23 could scramble the rankings again.

Record: 2-0 | Last week: 19
Some teams in Tennessee have played as many as 15 games; Ensworth has reported only two. Still, those two wins are enough to keep Ensworth in the MaxPreps Top 25.

Record: 0-0 | Last week: 20
Like St. John-Vianney, Rutgers Prep has yet to start play.

Record: 0-0 | Last week: 21
Valley Vista will begin an 18-game, in-state season Jan. 19.

Record: 0-0 | Last week: 22
Archbishop Wood is a bit of a mystery as no schedule has been posted — even though Pennsylvania is expected to begin play this week.

Record: 12-1 | Last week: 2
The loss to No. 18 DeSoto dropped the Panthers to No. 23, but the Jan. 23 rematch will be a shot at redemption – and a rise in the rankings.

Record: 0-0 | Last week: 24
Washington will meet this week to decide if the season will begin Feb. 1 or be postponed until spring (as is the case in California, among others). But for now, Chiawana stays at No. 24.

Record: 8-0 | Last week: NR
Fremont jumps into the rankings thanks to a hot start and a loaded roster. Davis, at 5-1, will be a test this Friday.

High school football: Mater Dei, St. John Bosco head into showdown atop OFFICIAL Top 25 California rankings - OFFICIAL
High school football: Mater Dei, St. John Bosco head into showdown atop MaxPreps Top 25 California rankings
Like a Thanksgiving table, it's all arranged, neat and pretty, with all the fixings. Top-ranked Mater Dei and No. 2 St. John Bosco prevailed handily last week in tuneups and now meet Saturday for the unofficial 2021 spring California high school football championship.

The No. 1 Monarchs rolled a very good Santa Margarita team 49-13 on Friday behind 291 yards passing and four touchdowns from freshman quarterback Elijah Brown and two rushing scores by Raleek Brown. Elijah Brown fired TD passes to four different receivers.

Bosco led 48-0 at halftime en route to a 55-0 victory over Orange Lutheran. According to the Press-Telegram, sophomore quarterback Pierce Clarkson threw three touchdown passes on his first three attempts and the Braves scored six touchdowns on their first 22 plays while sharpening up for the Monarchs.

Bosco has outscored five opponents 266-91, while the Monarchs have a 174-40 margin over their four foes. The two national powers have split their last 10 meetings, including their last two to decide the Southern Section Division I title. The combined scores of those two games: St. John Bosco 52, Mater Dei 51.

Saturday's showdown is set for 7 p.m. at Santa Ana Stadium.

CALIFORNIA SPRING COMPUTER RANKINGS: Compare to human rankings below

The biggest movers in the rankings this week were No. 16 Serra (Gardena) and No. 21 Chaminade (West Hills).

Serra won its fourth straight, 38-17 over Bishop Amat, after a season-opening overtime loss to Long Beach Poly. Among those wins was a victory over Chaminade, which entered the rankings after beating previous No. 8 Alemany 34-27. Serra jumped seven spots this week.

Chaminade started 0-2 but has won three straight, getting a huge boost from starting quarterback Jaylen Henderson, who had planned to sit out the season. He returned in an overtime loss to Serra, but has since led his team to three straight wins.

In the win over Alemany, Henderson completed 15-of-20 for 244 yards and four touchdowns and rushed 11 times for 123 yards and another score. The highly-ranked dual threat has signed to Fresno State.

Another notable team performance last week was No. 8 Cathedral Catholic (San Diego), which moved up one spot after a 41-0 win over previous No. 23 Lincoln (San Diego). Lincoln had outscored its three previous opponents, 152-0. In Cathedral Catholic's win, Lucky Sutton rushed for 235 yards and three touchdowns and the defense allowed just 65 total yards and three first downs.
