This weekend, SEC fans, if you tune in or log in—depending on if it’s TV or livestream—you can see several of the SEC’s top commitments or potential recruits in action. It is state championship time, and Georgia’s title games are in full swing, and there are SEC recruits abound.
Probably the biggest eyecatcher is Norcross, Georgia’s Lorenzo Carter–a five-star D-lineman with most of the SEC after him. He’ll be on TV and livestream Saturday at 8:30 p.m.
NOTE: All times mentioned are Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). Check your local listings for the regional channels.
