High school football rankings: IMG Academy finishes year at No. 1, earns MaxPreps National Champion honors
IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) finishes the year where it began as the No. 1 team in the MaxPreps Top 25 high school football rankings. The Ascenders have been named the MaxPreps National Champion for the first time in the program's eight-year history.

The Ascenders earned the title under first-year coach Bobby Acosta, who took over in Bradenton for Kevin Wright. IMG Academy's previous best finish was No. 2 in 2017. The program has finished in the top 10 of the MaxPreps Top 25 for the sixth straight season, compiling a 56-2 record during that span.

IMG Academy went 8-0 in 2020, winning each contest by at least 27 points while notching victories against No. 16 Duncanville, No. 38 Northwestern (Miami), Edgewater (Orlando), Ravenwood (Brentwood, Tenn.) and TRU Prep Academy (Miami Gardens, Fla.).

Michigan-bound quarterback J.J. McCarthy finished with nearly 1,500 yards passing and 16 touchdowns without an interception. Alabama-bound J.C. Latham, Michigan signee Greg Crippen and four-star junior offensive tackle Tyler Booker led the way in the trenches for the nation's best offensive line.

The defense, which never allowed more than 14 points in a game, was led by sophomore linebacker Malik Bryant, five-star safety Kamari Wilson, Kansas signee O.J. Burroughs and Ole Miss signee Markevious Brown.

High school football: DJ Uiagalelei, JT Daniels lead list of Top 10 players from Southern California rivals Mater Dei, St. John Bosco - OFFICIAL
High school football: DJ Uiagalelei, JT Daniels lead list of Top 10 players from Southern California rivals Mater Dei, St. John Bosco
Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.) and St. John Bosco (Bellflower, Calif.) hasn't just become the best high school football rivalry in California but has emerged as one of the best in the entire country. The Monarchs have finished ranked inside the Top 10 national rankings the last four years while the Braves have done it in five straight seasons.

The next man up at Clemson, DJ Uiagalelei, led St. John Bosco to a 2019 MaxPreps National Championship after leading the Braves to a wild 39-34 win over the Monarchs in the CIF Southern Section Division 1 title game. Bosco knocked off De La Salle (Concord) two weeks later in the CIF Open Division championship to win the school's third state title since 2013.

Two years prior, JT Daniels led the Monarchs to a wire-to-wire finish as the No. 1 team in high school football and they never trailed in any game en route to a perfect 15-0 season.

These two programs have produced some of the best talent in the country and especially as of late.

Alabama's Tommy Brown, Oregon's Jaylin Davies, former UCLA tight end Thomas Duarte, Oregon's Mase Funa, Michigan's Darion Green-Warren, former USC star Khaled Holmes, UCLA's Mike Martinez, Washington's Myles Murao, Oklahoma's Chris Murray, California's Nikko Remigio and USC's Solomon Tuliaupupu are just some of the notable former Mater Dei Monarchs who were left off the Top 10 alumni list.

Former California defensive back Traveon Beck, Washington's Terrell Bynum, Clemson's Beaux Collins, former Colorado star Shay Fields, Boise State's George Holani, Oregon's Kris Hutson, Washington's Trent McDuffie, former NFL cornerback Leon McFadden, Stanford's Drake Metcalf, former Notre Dame and UConn linebacker D.J. Morgan and UCLA's JonJon Vaughns are some of the former St. John Bosco Braves that just missed the cut.

The following is the top 10 alumni (in alphabetical order) from the two schools in a lead-up to Saturday's 7 p.m. showdown at Santa Ana Stadium.

It's no secret that California, Florida and Texas are high school baseball power states.

But our breakdown of MLB Draft first round picks over the past decade validate that to a stunning degree. Those three states have produced 189 first round picks since 2010.

Throw in Georgia's 39 selections and that means four states have accounted for over half of baseball's 450 first round picks over the past 10 years.

2021 NFL Draft: High school football powerhouse IMG Academy projected to have seven players selected - OFFICIAL
2021 NFL Draft: High school football powerhouse IMG Academy projected to have seven players selected
During the 2020 NFL Draft, national high school football power IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) became the first prep program since 2014 to have four players selected. The Ascenders could potentially double that in 2021, according to Ryan Wilson of CBS Sports.


All but Newsome played together during the 2016 season when the Ascenders went 11-0 and had notable wins over Centennial (Corona, Calif.), Grayson (Loganville, Ga.), Long Beach Poly (Long Beach, Calif.), St. Frances Academy (Baltimore) and St. John's (Washington, D.C.). They finished the year ranked No. 3 in the MaxPreps Top 25.

Cisco and Newsome were part of IMG's 2017 team that went 9-0 and finished ranked No. 2 in the MaxPreps Top 25.

Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond is one of seven former IMG Academy players who could hear their name called this weekend as part of the NFL Draft.
No less impressive is American Heritage (Plantation, Fla.), which has five players going in Wilson's mock draft. The Patriots' potential draft haul is led by Patrick Surtain II, who Wilson predicts will go No. 9 to the Denver Broncos. Joining Surtain are Tyson Campbell, Khalil Herbert, Anthony Schwartz and Marco Wilson.

Campbell, Surtain and Wilson gave the Patriots the best secondary in the country during the 2016 season and led Heritage to a 14-0 record, Class 5A state title and a spot at No. 10 in the final MaxPreps Top 25.

The following season, Campbell, Schwartz and Surtain led American Heritage to its second consecutive 5A state championship and a spot at No. 4 in the final MaxPreps Top 25 after going 14-0.

St. Thomas Aquinas (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) has had more players selected than any other high school over the last 20 years with 23 taken and Wilson's mock draft predicts there will be four more in the 2021 draft — Trevon Grimes, Elijah Moore, Josh Palmer and Asante Samuel Jr.

All four played together during the 2016 season when Aquinas went 13-2 and finished the year ranked No. 6 after winning the 7A state title.

Episcopal (Bellaire, Texas) has three players slated to be taken led by Jaylen Waddle — slotted to go sixth overall by the Miami Dolphins. Walker Little and Marvin Wilson are expected to also hear their names called. Little and Wilson were part of the Class of 2017 while Waddle was a year behind them and they went 9-2 during the 2016 season.
