Think Florida, Texas or California produce the most college football talent in the nation? You’d be right.
But when it comes to SEC talent–there’s a clear No. 1 state: Georgia. Yes, the Peach State has produced 10 more SEC commitments than the next state on the list, Florida. This number includes all classes, all current commitments.
So here’s a look at the top 10 SEC talent producing states, and also how many SEC teams have plucked talent from that state. Interestingly, Georgia feeds 12 SEC programs. The only two not on that list? Texas A&M somewhat understandably … and (scratch your head now) Florida. The Gators don’t have any Peach State talent committed to the program, which is really an anomaly. The next best state, Florida, was feeding 13 programs until Ravian Pierce and Arkansas parted ways this week. Now, the Razorbacks and Texas A&M are the only two programs with no Sunshine State talent.
Here’s a look at the top 10 states:
|STATE||SEC COMMITS||SEC SCHOOLS REPRESENTED|
|9. South Carolina||13||5|
Other SEC states: Arkansas (8), Kentucky (3).
Notable: North Carolina (4), California (3), New York (2), Pennsylvania (2), Minnesota (1), Wyoming (1).
