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. 25 – Eric Swinney, RB, 5-10/190
COMMITTED TO: Ole Miss.
HOMETOWN/SCHOOL: Sandy Creek (Tyrone, GA).
NAT. RANKING: No. 100 overall prospect in America.
NAT. POS. RANKING: No. 11 running back in America.
THE SKINNY: As a junior, Swinney rushed for 1,149 yards and 22 touchdowns for Sandy Creek HS. He also is a good receiver out of the backfield, catching just 11 passes but going 325 yards for 4 TDs. He is from Tyrone (Ga.), and in March did list Georgia as one of his favorites, but there is quite the logjam at his position and his activities this spring indicated it likely would come down to three SEC schools (Auburn, Tennessee, Ole Miss) and not the Bulldogs.
