SEC early enrollees ready to get a head start on the competition


Several SEC teams welcomed new additions from the 2013 recruiting class as early enrollees.

Getting a head start on the incoming competition is getting more and more popular with each and every year. Two early enrollee standouts who come to mind are Alabama running back TJ Yeldon and wide receiver Amari Cooper, and both had an extra spring to get their feet wet and more comfortable in the offense. And it showed on the Tide’s title run in 2013, as both were so key to winning an SEC Championship and national championship.
