Welcome to the sixth edition of the 2018 High School Power Rankings, presented by Universe Point cleats! The rankings can be permanently found on our Youth Rankings page.
The rankings will continue to be updated during the course of the spring. The rankings will eventually be used to determine invitations to the 2018 High School National Invite; currently, we plan to use the rankings published next week as the final rankings before final bids are sent out (many bids have been and will be sent out on a rolling basis).
