ESPN National College Football reporter Joe Schad unveiled his spring Top 25 via Twitter on Friday morning, and seven SEC schools make the cut, with three appearing in the top 10 spots.

Alabama, the defending national champion, enters April as his No. 1 overall team. LSU follows at No. 4, Tennessee nearly rounds out the top 10 at No. 9, and then Ole Miss (11) Georgia (13), Florida (16), and Texas A&M (22) finish things off for the conference.

Following the conclusion of the 2015 season, only five SEC teams finished inside the AP Top 25 Poll: Alabama (1), Ole Miss (10), LSU (16), Tennessee (22), and Florida (25).
