Jabari Smith named 2020-21 MaxPreps Georgia High School Basketball Player of the Year
Each year since 2006, MaxPreps has recognized outstanding performers in high school basketball. America's source for high school sports continues the tradition to close out the 2020-21 season by naming the top player in each state. Selections are based on team success and individual excellence, in addition to local and state accolades.

Jabari Smith of Sandy Creek (Tyrone) is the 2020-21 MaxPreps Georgia High School Basketball Player of the Year. The 6-foot-10, 210-pound senior helped the Patriots go 28-5 en route to the Class AAA state championship game.

Smith averaged 23.4 points, 9.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 2.5 blocks per contest while shooting 56 percent from the field. He finished with over 1,900 career points.

In Sandy Creek's 57-49 state championship loss to Cross Creek, Smith tallied 19 points, 17 rebounds and four blocks.

Signed with Auburn, Smith is regarded as the No. 5 prospect in the Class of 2021 overall according to 247Sports. Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, North Carolina, Mississippi and Tennessee were among other college basketball programs to extend offers.

Each state's MaxPreps Player of the Year will be considered for inclusion in the MaxPreps All-America Team, which is scheduled to be released April 13.

High school softball: Top 50 players from the Class of 2021
Jordyn Bahl is one of five Top 50 high school softball players from the Class of 2021 who will play for Patty Gasso and Oklahoma next spring.

Coming off a brilliant prep career at Papillion-LaVista (Papillion, Neb.), the top-rated Bahl finished with three state championships, including back-to-back Class A state titles. She was virtually unhittable in the circle, finishing with a flawless 54-0 record. The future Sooner had 978 strikeouts with a paltry 0.65 ERA in 523 innings pitched. She was special with a bat as well, hitting a career .504 with 58 home runs.

The Washington Huskies have signed the Nos. 2 and 3 players in the Class of 2021 — Kinsey Fiedler of Lee's Summit North (Lee's Summit, Mo.) and Rylee Holtorf of O'Connor (Phoenix). Fiedler was recently named Missouri's Player of the Year by the Examiner after hitting a state best 17 home runs while Holtorf is playing this spring. The senior infielder had six home runs before the season was cancelled in 2020 and helped the Eagles to a 6A state title in 2019.

Below are the Top 50 softball players from the Class of 2021. The list was formed using high school accomplishments, statistics provided to MaxPreps, postseason local awards, rankings services including FloSoftball, Extra Inning Softball, and Softball America.

High School baseball: St. Mary Prep moves to No. 2 in OFFICIAL Top 25 as losses shuffle rankings - OFFICIAL
High School baseball: St. Mary Prep moves to No. 2 in MaxPreps Top 25 as losses shuffle rankings
Multiple losses by Top 10 teams and continued undefeated play by St. Mary Prep (Orchard Lake, Mich.) and Friendswood (Texas) resulted in a huge shakeup in this week's MaxPreps Top 25 high school baseball rankings.

Previous No. 2 Jesuit (Tampa, Fla.), No. 3 Madison Central (Madison, Miss.), and No. 4 Stoneman Douglas (Parkland, Fla.) all lost last week with No. 5 IMG Academy getting the win over Jesuit. No. 6 Barbe also won while previous No. 10 Calvary Christian Academy lost and was dropped from the rankings.

Meanwhile, St. Mary Prep continued to rack up impressive win after impressive win, extending its win streak to 39 and season mark to 19-0. Friendswood also won a pair of games to move to  23-0. Since IMG Academy has ended its season, St. Mary Prep and Friendswood jump ahead of IMG Academy and Barbe. IMG Academy can still move up with losses by Buford, St. Mary Prep and Friendswood.

Six new teams enter the rankings this week. They include Utah's best Pleasant Grove, Columbus North, the top team in Indiana and Rocky Mountain, the top team in Idaho. Parkview Baptist has the best overall record in Louisiana, and Buchanan, the top team in Central California. Roff, a small school in Oklahoma, joins at No. 25. While Roff comes in No. 2 in the MaxPreps computer state rankings, it actually has a win over the No. 1 team, Deer Creek (Edmond).

Dropped out: Calvary Christian Academy (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.), Seymour (Tenn.), Fort Zumwalt West (O'Fallon, Mo.), Hewitt-Trussville (Trussville, Ala.), Trinity (Louisville, Ky.), Vero Beach (Vero Beach, Fla.).

Game of the Week: IMG Academy 4, Jesuit 2. In a game that could determine the top team in Florida, IMG Academy edged Jesuit thanks to three RBI by Drake Varnado. IMG Academy does not play in the postseason while Jesuit begins postseason play this week in defense of its state championship from 2019.

Player of the Week: Ike Irish, St. Mary Prep. Irish hit three home runs last week to help the Eaglets move up to the No. 2 spot in the rankings.

Recruit Watch: Cooper Kinney, Baylor. One of the top infielder prospects in the nation, Kinney had a big week for the Red Raiders with four doubles and three home runs.

Game to Watch: Baylor vs. Farragut. The Red Raiders and Admirals battle for the top spot in Tennessee this weekend. The two teams play in different divisions in the state playoffs and won't be able to determine state supremacy in the postseason. Baylor is coming off a disappointing loss to Parkview (Lilburn, Ga.), but stays in the rankings due to its matchup with No. 8 Farragut and what a possible win over the Admirals might mean with regards to the rankings.

Streaks: St. Mary Prep (Orchard Lake, Mich.) moved past Webster (Wis.) for the longest active win streak in the nation at 39. The Eaglets won 20 in a row to finish the 2019 season, did not play in 2020, and have won 19 in a row to start the 2021 season. Webster has a 37-game active win streak.
