SEC recruiting class grades
Kentucky, Florida, LSU, Arkansas earn high marks for 2013 recruiting
The SEC was the dominant league in recruiting during the early signing period. The conference crushed its counterparts in terms of top-10 and top-25 signings, and it wasn't just Kentucky. Florida signed a pair of top-10 players, Arkansas' two additions are highly rated, and LSU landed its biggest recruit in years with the nation's No. 15 prospect.
This is quite the collection of hardwood talent for a league known as a football powerhouse. Compared to the other BCS conferences, you'd have to grade the SEC out as the top dog this fall. It didn't sign the most ESPN 100 players, but the depth is outstanding, and it's elite at the top with seven signees in the top 15.
With the early signing period having ended last Wednesday, it's a good time to take stock of how all the SEC teams have fared so far in 2013 recruiting. Think of it like midterms, with the spring signing period representing final exams.
We're giving the SEC an overall recruiting grade of A, and below are team-by-team grades for all of the conference's 2013 recruiting classes after the early signing period. Make sure to also check out our updated class rankings to see how the SEC's top classes stack up against the nation's best.
