SEC recruiting storylines

5/15/2012

A look at five recruiting storylines from the SEC worth watching following spring football.

Can anyone keep up with Alabama?

It's fair to say that no one has recruited as well as Alabama since Nick Saban's arrival in Tuscaloosa. Alabama has finished no worse than in the top three since 2008, including having the nation's top class last year.

So it's hardly a shock that the Crimson Tide are once again off to a great start. Six of their 11 commitments are ESPN 150 members, including the nation's top linebacker prospect, Reuben Foster (Auburn, Ala./Auburn), who is No. 2 overall in the rankings; O.J. Howard (Prattville, Ala./Autauga Academy), who is No. 43 overall and the No. 2 tight end; and running backs Altee Tenpenny (North Little Rock, Ark./North Little Rock), who is No. 54 overall and the No. 5 RB, and Tyren Jones (Marietta, Ga./Walton), who is No. 76 and the No. 7 RB.
