Each Wednesday, ESPN RecruitingNation updates its national class rankings and its conference rankings.

The top class in the SEC is also the top class in the nation. Alabama leads a conference where 13 of the 14 members have classes ranked in the top 40 nationally. Tennessee, which recently added a verbal from in-state ESPN 300 DE Derek Barnett, joins Georgia in the top five of the national rankings. Those two are second and third in the SEC. As a conference, the SEC has more than 80 ESPN 300 prospects committed to its member programs.

1. Alabama, 21 commits: The Crimson Tide sit atop the RecruitingNation class rankings with a class that features 15 ESPN 300 prospects, including most recent commitment Ronnie Clark (Calera, Ala./Calera), the No. 96 overall prospect. Alabama remains in the hunt for several five-star prospects, including No. 1 overall Leonard Fournette (New Orleans/Saint Augustine) and No. 9 Marlon Humphrey (Hoover, Ala./Hoover).
