Uncommitted countdown: Best 30 SEC targets available- No. 20 WR Christian Kirk


SDS will count down the 30 biggest SEC targets still available around the country–these are the players SDS thinks realistically will end up signing with SEC schools. Obviously there are players with SEC offers out west and up north, but if it looks like they aren’t seriously considering the SEC, we didn’t include them in this series.

Here’s a day-by-day ‘month of June’ look at the top 30 realistic SEC targets left in the country, ranking them from No. 30 down to No. 1 on June 30th.

No. 20 – Christian Kirk, WR, Scottsdale (Ariz.), 5-11/195

SEC OFFERS: Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Georgia, Missouri, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Vanderbilt.
NAT. RANKING: No. 39 overall prospect in America.
NAT. POS. RANKING: No. 5 wide receiver in America.
KIRK TELLS SDS: “Don’t be surprised if I do (end up in the SEC) because I love the SEC. I believe it’s arguably the best conference in college football and I want to compete against the best … Coaches like my versatility and speed, that I’m physical and what I can do offensively.”
THE SKINNY: Kirk–the No. 1 prospect in Arizona–recently named a top 10 of Stanford, Auburn, Tennessee, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Georgia, Texas A&M, Arizona State, USC and UCLA, but the schools aren’t in any kind of order. He is from Pac-12 territory, so there’s always the chance he could go that route–and there seems to be some interest in playing for Ohio State. However, this shifty target could also end up in the Aggies’ awesome offensive attack–and let’s face it, 2014 Aggies QB signee Kyle Allen was from Scottsdale (Ariz.) too.
SDS PREDICTION: Texas A&M trumps the west coast teams and Ohio State.

Editor’s note: For this particular series, Saturday Down South’s order for ‘likely SEC recruits’ is determined using the 247Sports.com industry composite ranking (as of June 1st ranking).
