SEC’s early enrollment up to 63 prospects, Tennessee leads with 15

NEW: Follow on facebook -

Now that junior college national signing day is behind us, it’s a good time to take a look at how many of these commitments will be on SEC campuses in January. The early graduates from junior college and even from high school can get there in time to participate in weightlifting, training and spring practice–as well as all of the summer workouts and basic acclimation to college life.

In all, 63 SEC recruits plan to be on campus early in January 2014–that’s out of about 300 or so current commitments to the SEC for the class of 2014. For the record, eight quarterback recruits plan to be on campus earlier–which is a trend for the position. Also, Tennessee leads the league with 15 of the early enrollees, which will help the Vols accommodate the oversized class of 33 commitments it has. In certain situations, early enrollees can be counted against last year’s class–which will assist the Vols in shoehorning this huge group in.

  1. Brian, I think you might be missing some Missouri early enrollees, one example would be the juco secondary coming in. Correct me if I’m wrong, but If I remember right or Rock M Nation had a lot more on their complete list.

    Can you follow this story up with what’s happened to the 2012-2013 early enrollees and how they are doing. Specific example would be Eddie Printz and Trent Hosick at Missouri. I keep expecting Missouri to press release that Hosick has decided to compete for more than one starting job. This young man is a transformer super-hero, big, strong, and quick enough to win the state wrestling championship, but skilled enough to handle and throw as a quarterback, then add his field reading skills where he followed blockers about as smartly as I’ve ever seen a high school kid read with perfect timing !!!! What happened to all those early commits last year? How many started? How many red-shirted? How many have new roles starting now or in spring practice?

  2. Also you are missing Tennessee commit Emmanuel Moseley from North Carolina.
