With 7 months to go before national signing day, SDS will spend the month of July counting down the best current commitments in the SEC.
Here’s a day-by-day ‘month of July’ look at the top 31 players who are already committed to SEC schools, counting them down from No. 31 down to No. 1 on July 31st.
No. 28 – Chauncey Rivers, DE/TE, 6-3/250
COMMITTED TO: Georgia.
HOMETOWN/SCHOOL: Stephenson (Stone Mountain, GA).
NAT. RANKING: No. 115 overall prospect in America.
NAT. POS. RANKING: No. 9 weakside defensive end in America.
THE SKINNY: Rivers, a former South Carolina commitment, is a guy who could play a couple of different positions at the next level–defensive end and tight end being his best spots. He’s compact for a big guy and has good speed (4.65 seconds in the 40-yard dash). He’s very, very quick–and not surprisingly several other schools (Notre Dame? LSU?) are still trying to sway him to come to their program.
