Four SEC programs add commitments Monday


Georgia, Arkansas, Tennessee and LSU all welcomed new family members on Monday in a frenzy of commitments that provided six new SEC recruits in all.

Arkansas was the busiest, landing three Miami products in one day. In fact, that makes four south Florida commitments for the Razorbacks since the weekend began, and five total. Having former Miami head coach Randy Shannon on staff has obviously helped. All three of Monday’s pickups are of the three-star variety, but sometimes the talent around Miami and Fort Lauderdale gets a tad bit lost in a sea of ability. It is one of the talent-rich areas in the country, where third-team all-county players end up starting in the SEC.

The three additions at Arkansas on Monday were DE Anthony Brown (6-4/235) out of Miami Killian, WR Cornelius Floyd (6-1/190) out of Miami Gulliver Prep and WR Kendrick Edwards (6-6/205) out of Miami Norland.

Tennessee and LSU both landed four-star prospects when prized all-purpose back Derrell Scott chose Tennessee over South Carolina and 2015 DB Kevin Henry became part of the LSU class of current high school juniors. Georgia added three-star DB Dominick Sanders just days before his planned official visit to Athens.

Just another typical day the week before national signing day–lots of activity.

  • Brian, what are your thoughts on Sanders? He’s a 3-star across the board, but I’ve heard he shows some pretty impressive athleticism and has dominated games in which other 4-star or higher players are also playing.

    • Hey Dawg … good to see you on here again. Definitely seems to be a bit overlooked, and one of those classic latecomers. I can tell you from writing the stories up how many of these 3 star kids end up being high draft picks in the NFL. This kid could be another one of those, as you point out. Notice his “ratings” bumped up after he added the Auburn and Georgia visits to his schedule.

      • I hadn’t noticed the bump, but I’ve had to temper my recruiting addiction as of late due to work picking up. Speaking of the bump, though, I know some of these recruiting sites would have us think a prospect’s offers and visits don’t impact his rating, but it is awful coincidental when, for example, a kid gets a Bama offer and then jumps from a 2 to a 4 star seemingly overnight. But, like you said, at the end of the day, the stars don’t matter and they certainly don’t guarantee anything one way or the other.
