Uncommitted countdown: Best 30 SEC targets available- No. 27 OL Matthew Burrell


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. 27 – Matthew Burrell, OL, Woodbridge (Va.), 6-6/290

SEC OFFERS: Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, LSU, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Tennessee.
NAT. RANKING: No. 67 overall prospect in America.
NAT. POS. RANKING: No. 7 offensive tackle in America.
THE SKINNY: OK, so it’ll be tough for an SEC school to wrench him loose from a closer power like Ohio State, but you can be sure the SEC powers are trying hard. Georgia, South Carolina and Alabama were all on campus in May, and a flurry of offers have come his way in recent months. Virginia native or not, this is a kid SEC schools covet–greatly.
SDS PREDICTION: If SEC bound, we’ll go with Alabama or Florida.

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).
