College football coaches have an added element to their jobs that their professional colleagues do not have to worry about. Hours poured over the Xs and Os of a football game and practice are not enough. Neither is watching days upon days worth of film, or making sure their players hit the weight room. The press always wants a piece of absolutely everyone, and if they are feisty enough, they will get it.

However, there is something else, a wrinkle added to the daily grind of the life of a head football coach at the collegiate level: Recruiting.

On Wednesday, Feb. 6, all of the hours calling, texting, tweeting, and visiting high school seniors finally comes to an end. ESPNU will be broadcasting an entire day’s worth of elite recruits on National Signing Day.

Thus, with only one more day remaining in the helter-skelter universe of college recruiting, we take stock of where each and every team in the SEC sits — and where they could be standing come this time tomorrow.
