Best of the visits: SEC

There weren’t many big games around the SEC on Saturday but there were some key visitors. Some prospects attended the games while others watched on television and used social media as a platform to share their experiences. Here's a look at some of the top social media posts from the weekend:

Mississippi State wide receiver commit Farrod Green sent out a very cryptic tweet in regards to Ole Miss linebacker commit Leo Lewis. The ESPN 300 linebacker has been to Ole Miss and Mississippi State several times over the last few months and looks to be torn between the two schools. He visited MSU for its 51-0 win over Vanderbilt.
One of the more interesting visits of the weekend was five-star defensive end CeCe Jefferson visiting Florida despite not knowing who the head coach will be for the Gators next year. He posted several pictures, including one of himself with Florida defensive line coach Brad Lawing, a fan also tweeted a photo of Jefferson posing with other fans. ESPN 300 offensive tackle Jalen Merrick sent out probably the funniest tweet of the weekend. Merrick sent out a photo of himself posed with Arkansas head coach Bret Beliema with the coach wearing a wig to imitate Merrick's hair style. Merrick took an official visit to Arkansas this weekend. ESPN 300 linebacker Darrin Kirkland Jr. visited Tennessee this weekend and tweeted a photo of himself wearing a Tennessee jersey. Junior linebacker prospect Toron Morten tweeted about his experience at Georgia for an unofficial visit this weekend. Georgia beat Charleston Southern 55-9. Morten was also joined by Louisville linebacker commit Amonte Caban, who also posted with Morten for a photo. Junior defensive end Julian Okwara visited South Carolina for its 37-12 win over South Alabama. Okwara also has offers from Boston College and NC State.

From Alabama's big 25-20 win over Mississippi State on Saturday afternoon to Georgia’s dominating 34-7 win over Auburn, there were some incredible games for recruits to watch this weekend. Some prospects attended the games while others watched on television and used social media as a platform to share their experiences. Here's a look at some of the top social media posts from the weekend:

Five-star defensive end CeCe Jefferson took an official visit to Alabama this weekend. The No. 9-ranked player in the nation has Alabama as one of his top schools and posed for a picture with Alabama head coach Nick Saban before the game on Saturday.
The 18th-ranked prospect in the ESPN Junior 300, Rashard Lawrence, a Monroe, Louisiana, native, also posed for a picture during his trip to Alabama. An Alabama fan posted a photo of himself with five-star quarterback commit Blake Barnett after Alabama's big win. Florida offensive line commit Brandon Sandifer tweeted this photo of himself and two other Florida commits Tyler Jordan and George Brown Jr., who all visited the Gators Saturday. Alabama commit Ronnie Harrison visited Georgia this weekend and found an unusual connection with head coach Mark Richt's wife. The two posed for a picture on Saturday. ESPN Junior 300 cornerback Chad Clay posted a picture from the Georgia sideline at the game on Saturday night. Another junior cornerback, Malek Young, also visited Georgia for the exciting game against Auburn and posed for a photo on the sideline. Arkansas commit C.J. O'Grady posted a photo of fellow Arkansas commit Will Gragg before Arkansas's first SEC win under head coach Brett Beliema. Junior cornerback Ikenna Okeke posted a photo of himself with Tennessee linebacker A.J. Johnson.

There are once again some big games around the SEC this weekend. The Auburn at Ole Miss game looks to be loaded with big-time visitors. Mississippi State is trying to capitalize on its success by bringing in several recruits for its game against Arkansas and Vanderbilt is hoping to build some momentum against Old Dominion. The Florida-Georgia game will be watched by many recruits but because its a neutral site game both teams have agreed not to allow visitors for the game. Here’s a closer look at some of the top visitors in the SEC this weekend.
