As expected, the weekend was a busy one for SEC schools looking to do some last-minute shopping before the national signing day holiday.
Vanderbilt and Mississippi State were clearly the busiest. The Commodores came into the weekend with only nine commitments, thanks to the late coaching switch. With only seven commitments still remaining from the original 20 that James Franklin had on board, new coach Derek Mason has added eight kids in a matter of days. Six of them came over the weekend.
The biggest 2014 pickup for any SEC school was junior college DB Tee Shepard to Mississippi State. Shepard was a Notre Dame recruit coming out of high school in California.
Alabama quietly added two junior four-star commitments.
