Here are the top five SEC commitments for 2016

No. 1 – Greg Little, Allen (Texas), OL

SEC SCHOOL: Committed to Texas A&M.
NATIONAL RANK: No. 1 overall prospect in nation.
THE SKINNY: Little just picked the Aggies in the past week, and he will join his high school quarterback–2015 five-star prospect Kyler Murray–in College Station in 2016.

No. 2 – Patrick Hudson, Silsbee (Texas), OL

SEC SCHOOL: Committed to Texas A&M.
NATIONAL RANK: No. 25 overall prospect in nation.
THE SKINNY: Obviously the Aggies are off to a nice start in the offensive line department, with the No. 1 overall prospect in the nation in Little, and another outstanding product in Hudson. The rich just keep getting richer in College Station.

No. 3 – DeKaylin Metcalf, Oxford (Miss.), WR

SEC SCHOOL: Committed to Ole Miss.
NATIONAL RANK: No. 31 overall prospect in nation.
THE SKINNY: Metcalf has been on board for a long time and he’s going to be playing for his hometown team. This is an extremely talented wide receiver and the best player in the state of Mississippi for 2016.

No. 4 – Stephen Sullivan, Donaldsonville (La.), WR

SEC SCHOOL: Committed to LSU.
NATIONAL RANK: No. 54 overall prospect in nation.
THE SKINNY: Sullivan is a 6-foot-6 wide receiver. He’ll be paired up with Franks (see below) to create a future passing tandem that will make LSU fans stand and cheer. This is a nice start to the class.

No. 5 – Feleipe Franks, Crawfordville (Fla.), QB

SEC SCHOOL: Committed to LSU.
NATIONAL RANK: No. 55 overall prospect in nation.
THE SKINNY: Franks is the No. 1 dual threat quarterback in the nation for his class and was coveted by several SEC schools and nearby Florida State. He is 6-foot-5, 205 pounds and can make all the plays and is very coachable, his prep coach Scott Klees tells SDS.
