NEW: Follow on facebook -

They’re older, they’re wiser … and they’ve been humbled a bit. On Wednesday, junior college players can begin signing national letters of intent with BCS schools–and the SEC has a bumper crop of them planning to come aboard.

The SEC, as of Tuesday, will have 32 junior college transfers coming to the ranks next year. These guys aren’t ready to redshirt or sit for a few years, they’re seasoned and ready to play. Here’s a look at what kind of bumper crop of JUCO players is coming to the SEC, and what they’re ranked in the 247Sports.com composite ranking–which averages all of the recruiting services’ rankings.

Auburn has the No. 1 JUCO player in the nation in D’haquille Wiliams, and for the record, Tennessee has three of the national top 10 JUCO prospects and four of the top 20.

  1. I think everyone has to agree that Mississippi has the best juco football in the country. Every year juco teams are loaded with SEC talent. No other state comes close to having the kind of talent in the juco ranks like Mississippi. Did I mention East Mississippi won the Juco National Title this year?

    Hopefully Jeremy Liggins doesn’t announce a commitment to LSU in the middle of the square again. I still may never forgive him for that.

    • I completely agree, that was just wrong. I’m wondering were he will play when he gets to Ole Miss? I just can’t see him playing QB. Maybe TE or DE?
