Uncommitted countdown: Best 30 SEC targets available- No. 2 Josh Sweat, DE

NCAA Football: Under Armour-All America Football

SDS will count down the 30 biggest SEC targets still available around the country–these are the players SDS thinks realistically could 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. 2 – Josh Sweat, DE, Chesapeake (Va.), 6-5/240

SEC OFFERS: Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas A&M.
NAT. RANKING: No. 2 overall prospect in America.
NAT. POS. RANKING: No. 1 weakside defensive end in America.
THE SKINNY: Sweat played on the same high school team as big-time recruit Andrew Brown last year, and both dominated. Sweat finished with 22 sacks and 31 tackles for loss on the season. He has all kinds of schools after him, namely in-state Virginia Tech, national champion Florida State and his leading SEC school would be Tennessee. Seeing Sweat end up in the SEC may be a longshot, but there’s a chance.
SDS PREDICTION: If he goes SEC, we’ll run with Tennessee.

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).
