SEC team-by-team recruiting update, Texas A&M still No. 1 team in the country

USATSI_7220485_154511880_lowres

Texas A&M has paced the SEC and the country for some time now, dating back to earlier in the year. The Aggies’ brand is in full swing, and they are developing a stronghold on the fertile state of Texas. Will they become a perennial power?

But the two hottest teams in the country right now are Alabama and – wait for it – Kentucky. Alabama is Alabama, but what Mark Stoops is doing at Kentucky is phenomenal. Of 17 commitments, eight of them hail from Ohio, the same state the Stoops’ brothers call home. And it’s not just three-star prospects. Stoops is going after the big boys, and with the SEC brand at their back, the Wildcats are doing some serious damage. Are the Wildcats this year’s Ole Miss? February is still eight months away.

Alabama picked up the nation’s top pro-style QB David Cornwell from Norman, Oklahoma. The five-star Cornwell will fit perfectly into Alabama’s offensive system. I guess Nick Saban won’t sign a top dual-threat quarterback after all.

The SEC currently has eight of the top 15 classes in the country, along with three of the top five.

Here’s how the SEC stacks up against each other.
