Over the last month, SDS has been counting down the top 25 players in the SEC for 2013. And I’m sure you all had some qualms about the ranking, but that’s what makes the SEC so great – everyone is passionate about their team and their team’s players.

It’s always interesting to see how the best SEC players ranked as recruits. Five former three-stars made the cut, along with Denzel Nkemdiche, who went unranked according to Rivals.com.
MSU’s Gabe Jackson, Georgia’s Keith Marshall, Florida’s Marcus Roberson and Vanderbilt’s Andre Hal were the first four out, and I included them on the chart below. Jeremy Hill did not make the ranking because of his suspension. All five are worthy to be in the top 25, and we’ll see how the season plays out for each:
|1||Jadeveon Clowney||DE||South Carolina||*****|
|2||Johnny Manziel||QB||Texas A&M||***|
|10||Jake Matthews||OT||Texas A&M||****|
|17||Mike Evans||WR||Texas A&M||***|
|19||Denzel Nkemdiche||LB||Ole Miss||NR|
|22||Donte Moncrief||WR||Ole Miss||****|
|Gabe Jackson||OG||Miss State||***|
