Uncommitted countdown: Best 30 SEC targets available- No. 14 Tim Settle, DT


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. 14 – Tim Settle, DT, Manassas (Va.), 6-3/320

SEC OFFERS: Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Kentucky, LSU, Mississippi State, Mizzou, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas A&M.
NAT. RANKING: No. 26 overall prospect in America.
NAT. POS. RANKING: No. 5 defensive tackle in America.
THE SKINNY: There have been some comparisons with Da’Shawn Hand, a native Virginian who signed in February with Alabama–one of Settle’s top schools. But Settle has made it be known that Tennessee leads for his services right now. Though he’s from Virginia, he seems to be looking southward for potential schools.
SETTLE TELLS SDS: “I could see myself in the SEC. To be successful, you have to get taught by the best. I know there are a lot of great coaches in the SEC. It seems like there has always been an SEC team in the national championship, they’re so dominant. They’re the top conference in the NCAA, they’re destructive. I heard somebody say that there are three leagues in the NFL–the NFC, the AFC and the SEC. I’ve heard that a lot. It’s a dominant force of crazy.”
SDS PREDICTION: Tennessee. Settle said it himself–the Vols lead.
