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. 23 – Derrius Guice, RB, 5-11/220
COMMITTED TO: LSU.
HOMETOWN/SCHOOL: Baton Rouge, LA (Catholic).
NAT. RANKING: No. 95 overall prospect in America.
NAT. POS. RANKING: No. 9 running back in America.
THE SKINNY: Alabama made a run at Guice too, but there was little doubt he would eventually end up with Tigers. That’s exactly what happened late this spring, but his behavior–how many times he was on LSU’s campus being a Baton Rouge native–made it a no brainer that he’d end up a Tiger. This is a big-time power back with good maneuverability. As has been pointed out many times before, this isn’t a kid who needs to get on campus and hit the weights–he’s already quite stout.
