Below are the top 25 rankings for each class, based on the final 2013 computer Maxwell Ratings but with each team placed in its 2014 classification.
It appears that the top three classes will get a little stronger, while AAA and AA will get a little weaker. Class A should be about the same.
The highest class picked up AAAAA runner-up Tucker and Region 5-AAAAA champion North Paulding without losing any Top 10 teams. Maxwell rates Tucker as only the No. 11 team, but the computer ratings were skeptical two years ago about Lovejoy, the 2011 AAAA runner-up that moved to the highest class and was runner-up again.
2. North Gwinnett
3. Collins Hill
4. Colquitt County
6. Camden County
10. Mill Creek
11. Tucker (AAAAA)
12. Peachtree Ridge
15. North Cobb
17. North Paulding (AAAAA)
23. Tift County
