ESPN RecruitingNation has signing day covered. Follow ESPNU’s coverage, chat with analysts and get breaking news on our Signing Day Live page beginning at 7:30 a.m. ET through 7 p.m. ET. For more on what to expect on signing day, check out the SEC conference breakdown Insider.

Bold Prediction for the SEC:

Ole Miss' class will eventually be ranked in the top five nationally with the addition of No. 1 overall prospect Robert Nkemdiche from Loganville (Ga.) Grayson and possibly ESPN 150 prospects Chris Jones from Houston (Miss.) High and Antonio Conner from Batesville (Miss.) South Panola.

SEC East

Florida
Biggest need: Florida wants immediate help at defensive tackle. Jarran Reed from Scooba (Miss.) East should be able to provide that if he decides to sign with the Gators on national signing day.
Biggest recruit: The Gators have two five-star commitments: cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III from Tampa (Fla.) Wharton and running back Kelvin Taylor from Belle Glade (Fla.) Glades. No other school in the country can say that.

Georgia
Biggest need: The Bulldogs would like to pick up another top offensive lineman. They looked destined to land Laremy Tunsil from Lake City (Fla.), but the competition has heated up for him lately.
Biggest recruit: With 12 ESPN 300 commitments, Georgia has plenty of star power. However, it's impossible to overvalue the commitment of Brice Ramsey from Kingsland (Ga.) Camden, a quarterback the Bulldogs can build around.

The central theme with University of Georgia recruiting will always be to close the borders in the Peach State. But last week, the Bulldogs went cross-country to try and land one of the best on the West Coast.

Georgia had already extended six offers to defensive linemen for the 2013 class, five of which are to in-state prospects. Head coach, recruiting coordinator and defensive line coach Rodney Garner extended his latest offer to Eddie Vanderdoes (Auburn, Calif./Placer). After talking to the ESPNU Watch List selection, it became apparent why Garner hopes to reel in the Golden State standout.

“I only spoke to Coach Garner once, and when I called him that is when he offered me,” Vanderdoes said. “He said he saw my highlight tape and that he really loves the way I play the game. He said with his coaching he could keep making me better, and I could be one of those guys like Richard Seymour that he develops for the NFL, so I thought that was really cool.”
