SEC Wins Another Title, Dominates National Signing Day

Videos by OutKick

It’s not quite noon and according to Rivals the SEC has the 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 10, and 12th best recruiting classes in the nation. That’s seven of the top 12 classes in the nation. Not to be outdone, 247 Sports has the SEC with the 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 9 and 11 classes in the nation. That’s an even better seven of the top 11 classes in the nation.

That’s downright insane.

But I guess that’s what you come to expect when today’s current signing classes were in the fifth grade the last time the SEC didn’t win the national title.

Seriously, the fifth grade.

As if that wasn’t enough Rivals had the SEC with 12 of the top 26 classes in the nation — 12! — and 247 Sports had the conference with 11 of the top 26 classes in the country.

I mean, that dominance is flat-out staggering.

Surveying all four of the major recruiting services — Rivals, 247Sports, Scout, and ESPN — here’s the consensus top 14 classes in the SEC:

1. Alabama

2. Florida

3. Ole Miss

4. LSU

5. Texas A&M

6. Auburn

7. Georgia

8. South Carolina

9. Vanderbilt

10. Mississippi State

11. Tennesseee 

12. Arkansas

13. Kentucky

14. Missouri


I’ll write more on signing day later, but in the meantime, here are the consensus SEC class rankings, they aren’t going to change very much from here.

The sobering thought for the rest of college football? This is the best collection of talent the SEC schools have ever signed. Meaning the gap between the SEC and the rest of college footbal isn’t shrinking, it’s widening.
