16U Power Rankings: Week 5: May 9, 2012

SCAN still at No. 1

Last week it was Real Deal and Bob Gibbons, while next week it's the Next Level Showcase in Dallas. This week, however, was relatively quiet. While that means there wasn't much movement, it also means that those who did choose to play were able to push past some teams who chose to stay home.
