Findlay Prep’s boys basketball team was ranked No. 1 in USA Today’s preseason top 25, which was released on Friday.
The Pilots went 29-3 last season and were fourth in the final USA Today rankings.
Finlday Prep returns just four players from last year’s team, but the Pilots have added several high-profile players, including guard Carlos Johnson, who has committed to UNLV.
Guard Skylar Mays (Louisiana State) and forward Tristan Clark (Baylor) are two other newcomers that already have committed to Division I schools.
Findlay Prep opens its season Friday against Impact Academy.
