SEC Football Daily: February 20

SEC-Football-Georgia-Bulldogs

1.  Florida received a commitment from the son of former NFL running back and Gator great Fred Taylor over the weekend. Kelvin Taylor committed to Florida at Junior Day in Gainesville, over Alabama. Taylor has said he will enroll early at Florida next January to get a head start on spring football for next season. [al.com]

2. In addition to Taylor, Florida received another five commitments from the class for 2013. Including Taylor, Florida hauled in an impressive six commitments on Junior Day. I’m not sure another team has had such an outstanding day in the recruiting ranks. [Gainesville Sun]

3. Auburn offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler is only in the beginning stages of evaluating his players so he can decide which offensive scheme will suit his team. He will continue to evaluate the team and personnel through spring, then the Tigers will get an idea of what offense will best fit their players’ talent. [al.com]

4. Auburn hired former Georgia defensive coordinator Willie Martinez. Martinez will coach the defensive backs for the Tigers under new defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder. [ESPN]

5. Is the Florida-Tennessee matchup in jeopardy of losing the CBS primetime game next season? The Alabama-Arkansas game falls on the same Saturday as the Vols-Gators game next season during the third week of SEC football. The Florida-Tennessee game is the only game CBS has showed on that date for 16 years. [Times Free Press]

6. UGA is not the only school dealing with domestic violence charges. Recently, Bulldogs’ defensive back Sanders Commings was arrested for domestic violence, and Mark Richt has suspended him for the first two games of the season next year. However, Florida tight end AC Leonard was recently arrested for the same charge. ¬†We’ll see what Will Muschamp decides to do. [AJC]

7. Like Florida, Texas A&M received four commitments from the class of 2013 over the weekend at the Aggies’ Junior Day. The headliner of the commitments is offensive lineman Ishmael Wilson, one of the top linemen in the state of Texas. [CBS Sports]
