Video: Preseason Top 25 Rankings
Our experts pick IMG Academy No. 1 to start the season.
Head coach: Roger Harriott
15-0, No. 3 national ranking
DL | 6-2.5 | 255 | Sr.
The 2021 Florida commit racked up 8.5 sacks in 2019.
DL | 6-4 | 235 | Sr.
The 4-star edge rusher had 15 sacks and 18 tackles for loss during his junior season at American Heritage (Plantation, Fla.).
LB | 6-1 | 210 | Sr.
Committed to Michigan in May and was a standout linebacker for Cardinal Newman (West Palm Beach, Fla.) the last three years.
QB | 6-1 | 180 | Jr.
Accounted for 37 touchdowns (25 passing, 12 rushing) as a sophomore and expect an even better junior campaign.
CB | 5-10 | 165 | Sr.
The 2021 Michigan commit had six interceptions as a junior.
Aquinas had games lined up against No. 8 Duncanville (Texas) and
McEachern (Powder Springs, Ga.) but they got canceled because of the
coronavirus pandemic. They still have not released its schedule yet.
The Raiders won their first state title since 2016 last season and are favorites to repeat in 2020. They added some big-time transfers and return a lot of talent so expect them to be heavily in the mix to finish this year at No. 1. St. Thomas Aquinas has won at least 10 games every year during the MaxPreps era (since 2004) and has gone 67-8 since Roger Harriott took over as head coach before the 2015 season.
