SEC Football News on Saturday Down South

Two more five-star SEC targets to choose early next week

NEW: Follow on facebook -

By this time next week, five-star uncommitteds Raekwon McMillan and Clifton Garrett will be off the board–and there’s a chance SEC schools could land both of them.

Both are stud linebackers–Garrett’s listed as the best outside linebacker in the country, and McMillan is the top inside LB.

McMillan, who is a Georgia native, is slated to announce on Monday–with Ohio State considered a slight leader, but Alabama also is in the mix to land him (as is Clemson). He visited all three and Auburn in the past two months. Garrett, an Illinois native, is a little bit more solid to the SEC–despite not being from the region. Garrett will announce on Tuesday, and LSU is the heavy favorite to land his services–but Ole Miss, Tennessee and Florida also got official visits from him.

Garrett’s announcement could be the first of several monster five-star announcements that go LSU’s way in the next few weeks. A slew of uncommitted studs are planning to announce at the Under Armour Game on Jan. 2–it seems almost scripted what will happen that day. LSU will likely come away very happy.

  1. Garrett is an absolute stud and he’s just what LSU needs to make a NC run the next couple of years. I hope he picks LSU! Between Garrett, Ed Paris, Battle, Godchaux and a few of these uncommitted guys (Fournette and Dupre et al) LSU could land an unreal class. Geaux Tigers!

    • Yeah Bayou … I think the only real question is … will LSU gather enough steam to push into the national No. 1 spot ahead of Bama. I think Bama would have to whiff on some key kids down the stretch though. If they get Raekwon and Tabor, along with a lock like Humphrey, it may be tough for LSU to pass Bama. But we’ll see.

    • Garret is ALL VOL!!!!

  2. Come be a “VOL FOR LIFE”! You’ll look great in Orange!
