Allen up to No. 2, fast-rising DeSoto at No. 5 in composite national football rankings
Allen is up to No. 2 and DeSoto has risen to No. 5 in MaxPreps' composite national football rankings, which are a combination of the MaxPreps' rankings, PrepNation, USA Today, Rivals and MaxPreps computer rankings. (I hate computer rankings, because they can sometimes be ridiculous, but they're included here).
Here's the breakdown for the Texas teams:
2. Allen Average rank: 3 MaxPreps Xcellent 25: 2 PrepNation: 2 USA Today: 2 Rivals: 2 MaxPreps Computer: 7
5. DeSoto Average rank: 9.8 MaxPreps Xcellent 25: 6 PrepNation: 16 USA Today: 15 Rivals: 3 MaxPreps Computer: 9
12. Katy Average rank: 14.6 MaxPreps Xcellent 25: 8 PrepNation: 7 USA Today: 5 Rivals: 13 MaxPreps Computer: NR
Coppell is the only other Texas school in one of the national rankings. The Cowboys are No. 10 in the MaxPreps Xcellent 25.
Here are the complete rankings.
