Final 2017-18 Super 25 ranking: 2
The Sharks fell in the GEICO Nationals title game to Montverde Academy last season, but return a core that can put them in position to avenge that loss.
Vernon Carey Jr. (26 ppg., 10 rpg, 4.2 bpg.), who is ranked No. 2 overall in the Chosen 25 for 2019, and Scottie Barnes (21.3 ppg., 9.7 rpg at GEICO Nationals) who is ranked No. 6 overall in the Chosen 25 for 2020, give the Sharks the two most versatile forwards in the country, regardless of class, making them a matchup nightmare for most teams.
Logan Alters, a Cal commit, David Perez and Roger McFarland anchor the backcourt and brothers Jace and Jett Howard will contribute from the wing.
Barnes and Carey have enough quality pieces around them to get it done this season.
