‘Twas a busy weekend in SEC recruiting.
First off, former stud Alabama running back signee and current junior college prospect Alvin Kamara joined three other high school prospects in joining Tennessee’s 2015 class and bumping the Vols to the No. 7 recruiting class in the nation. The new quartet gives the Vols 17 commitments and bumped the Vols up six spots in the national rankings to the No. 7 spot. Also joining the Vols were Buford High School teammates Quay Picou, a defensive tackle, and linebacker Austin Smith–as well as Murfreesboro (Tenn.) TE Kyle Oliver. All three high school prospects are three-star prospects, with Picou being the highest rated of the three.
Kamara is the No. 3 rated overall junior college prospect in the nation and the No. 2 running back behind Jovon Robinson, who has already chosen Auburn.
Also over the weekend, Rawleigh Williams III became the 16th class of 2015 prospect to decommit from an SEC school when he changed his mind and became Arkansas’ 10th commitment for 2015. The Razorbacks are now rated No. 20 in the national ratings, and Williams is considered a three-star prospect
Williams is from Dallas, and plays against good competition. In a three-year prep career he already has rushed for 2,200 yards and 25 TDs and undoubtedly will add to that this year, and he’s also proven he can catch the ball out of the backfield, so he could be one of those multi-dimensional weapons on offense. Williams is solidly built and has a physical running style, but he also has above average speed. He did battle some injury problems as a junior.
