When all was said and done, the nation’s most dominant conference on the field also dominated on National Signing Day. It was frustrating for Urban Meyer to watch over at Ohio State, but the proof, as they say, is in the pudding.
The 14-team league signed a grand total of 349 student-athletes. Of those, a whopping 111 of them were members of the ESPN300. Fifty-eight were named to the elite ESPN150. Yes, for those of you wondering, more than one-third of all of the nation’s top recruits are headed to the SEC.
There are 152 three-star prospects, an insane 175 four-stars and six more five-stars — that’s a lot of talent.
So what do you think? Who is going to make the most immediate impact on their team as a true freshman? Is it going to a star cornerback lining up in the Orange and Blue? Or what about any one of the top recruits Ole Miss brought to Oxford? Nick Saban always brings in some of the nation’s best recruits, will any newly minted members of the Tide roll hard as a frosh?
