The 2025 recruiting cycle is in full swing.

The summer is always a busy time, with many prospects taking official visits during June. Independence Day weekend is also a popular time for recruits to announce their college commitment. With the 4th of July now in the rearview mirror, it’s a good time to take stock of where all 16 SEC programs currently stand in the 2025 recruiting rankings.

As of publication, the SEC has 5 classes in the top 10 and 10 classes in the top 25 of the national rankings. All but 2 programs (Florida and Vanderbilt) are ranked inside the top 50.

Here’s a snapshot of each SEC team’s 2025 recruiting class as of July 9:

Note: All rankings referenced are via the latest 247Sports Composite update. 

Alabama

  • National ranking: 2nd
  • Total commits: 20
  • Top-ranked commit: 5-star CB Dijon Lee | No. 22 overall | No. 4 CB

Alabama currently has the nation’s No. 2 class, trailing only Ohio State atop the overall leaderboard. The Tide’s class boasts a trio of 5-star prospects, including quarterback Keelon Russell. Alabama also currently has commitments from 10 recruits who are in the 247Sports Composite top-150 for this class.

Georgia

  • National ranking: 3rd
  • Total commits: 19
  • Top-ranked commit: 5-star TE Elyiss Williams | No. 20 overall | No. 1 TE

Given what Georgia’s offense did for Brock Bowers over the past couple of seasons, it should be no surprise to see the nation’s top-ranked tight end committed to the Bulldogs. UGA has a total of 2 5-star prospects committed so far in this class, but more could be added in the coming weeks and months before signing day.

LSU

  • National ranking: 6th
  • Total commits: 15
  • Top-ranked commit: 5-star QB Bryce Underwood | No. 1 overall | No. 1 QB

LSU’s class is headlined by the No. 1 overall prospect in Bryce Underwood. The Tigers have recruited very well this cycle, particularly on the defensive side of the ball. The hiring of new defensive line coach Bo Davis has already resulted in multiple blue-chip D-lineman committing this summer. With only 15 commits in the fold, there’s still plenty of room to grow for the Tigers.

Texas A&M

  • National ranking: 7th
  • Total commits: 18
  • Top-ranked commit: 4-star QB Husan Longstreet | No. 31 overall | No. 5 QB

Texas A&M isn’t having too many issues on the recruiting trail with Mike Elko at the helm. Texas A&M was a recruiting monster under Jimbo Fisher, but if it’s able to still bring in top-10 classes with Elko’s development staff in place, the Aggies should be even more competitive in the SEC longterm. Husan Longstreet has a chance to end the cycle as a 5-star recruit. Overall, Texas A&M has commits from 4 top-100 prospects in the Composite.

Oklahoma

  • National ranking: 8th
  • Total commits: 21
  • Top-ranked commit: 4-star WR Cortez Mills | No. 85 overall | No. 13 WR

Oklahoma is looking to put together a top-10 recruiting class after finishing just outside of that range last cycle. The Sooners have missed out on some high-profile targets this summer, but they’re still in pretty good shape entering the last few weeks of July.

Auburn

  • National ranking: 12th
  • Total commits: 16
  • Top-ranked commit: 4-star safety Eric Winters | No. 66 overall | No. 7 S

Auburn has continued to recruit well under head coach Hugh Freeze. That’s been especially true on the defensive side of the ball. As of publication, 5 of Auburn’s top 6 commits (per Composite rankings) play on defense. Auburn does not yet have a quarterback committed in this class, so that could be something to watch out for in the coming months.

Missouri

  • National ranking: 13th
  • Total commits: 16
  • Top-ranked commit: 4-star QB Matt Zollers | No. 38 overall | No. 7 QB

Mizzou has carried its offseason momentum into the class of 2025. The Tigers are just outside of the top-10 despite having just 16 commits so far in this class. Mizzou’s most-recent recruiting victory came when it landed 4-star offensive lineman Lamont Rogers over the likes of Texas and Oklahoma.

Tennessee

  • National ranking: 15th
  • Total commits: 16
  • Top-ranked commit: 4-star QB George MacIntyre | No. 36 overall | No. 6 QB

Like Missouri, Tennessee has a fringe top-10 class with just 16 commits in the fold thus far. George MacIntrye could end up as a Composite 5-star prospect in this cycle (and already is a 5-star by 247Sports’ individual rankings). The strength of Tennessee’s class so far is on the defensive line, as the Vols have a trio of blue-chip DL prospects who have already committed.

Kentucky

  • National ranking: 19th
  • Total commits: 17
  • Top-ranked commit: 4-star RB Marquise Davis | No. 151 overall player | No. 10 RB

Kentucky already has 7 commits from blue-chip prospects in this class. The Wildcats appear to be on their way to a second consecutive top-25 high school recruiting class.

Texas

  • National ranking: 22nd
  • Total commits: 13
  • Top-ranked commit: 4-star edge Lance Jackson | No. 43 overall player | No. 5 edge

Texas’ progress in the class of 2025 has been a bit slow, especially since they’re coming off of their best season in more than a decade. The Longhorns lost out on Lamont Rogers to Mizzou and 5-star receiver Dakorien Moore to Oregon earlier this month — both big blows on the recruiting trail. Still, Texas has plenty of time to rebound over the coming months and could still potentially end up with a top 10 class.

Arkansas

  • National ranking: 29th
  • Total commits: 16
  • Top-ranked commit: 4-star linebacker Tavion Wallace | No. 56 overall player | No. 6 LB

Despite the hot seat concerns regarding head coach Sam Pittman, Arkansas is off to a decent start in the class of 2025. The Razorbacks have 3 blue-chip commitments already, including a potential early contributor in Tavion Wallace. Arkansas also has a commitment from in-state QB prospect Grayson Wilson.

South Carolina

  • National ranking: 35th
  • Total commits: 16
  • Top-ranked commit: 4-star edge Jaquavious Dodd | No. 266 overall player | No. 20 edge

South Carolina put together a top-25 high school class last cycle and will be hoping to do so again in 2025. With only 16 commits, the Gamecocks still have plenty of room to add blue-chip prospects and get to that goal. Seven of South Carolina’s 17 commits so far are in-state prospects.

Mississippi State

  • National ranking: 39th
  • Total commits: 17
  • Top-ranked commit: 4-star athlete KaMario Taylor | No. 188 overall player | No. 16 ATH

Mississippi State is doing good work on the trail so far under Jeff Lebby. All 3 of the Bulldogs’ highest-ranked commits are in-star prospects, with KaMario Taylor headlining that group. Listed as an athlete, Taylor is expected to play quarterback for the Bulldogs.

Ole Miss

  • National ranking: 44th
  • Total commits: 12
  • Top-ranked commit: 4-star athlete Jarcoby Hopson | No. 202 overall player | No. 23 ATH

Lane Kiffin and his staff have done a tremendous job of bringing talent to Oxford in recent cycles, but a lot of that work gets done in the transfer portal. The Rebels’ class has just 12 commits so far, with 6 of them being 4-star talents. Expect Ole Miss to add some more blue-chip recruits before signing day, but a lot of Ole Miss’ additions next offseason will certainly come via the transfer portal.

Florida

  • National ranking: 67th
  • Total commits: 8
  • Top-ranked commit: 4-star edge Jalen Wiggins | No. 83 overall player | No. 9 edge

Florida is struggling on the recruiting trail right now. With Billy Napier firmly on the hot seat entering the 2024 season, it’s not too surprising to see the Gators have some difficulty in the 2025 cycle. Florida does have commits from 5 blue-chip prospects, so there is some quality here — but the Gators need more quantity before signing day. Regardless of whether or not Napier is still in charge after December, Florida could be looking at a portal-heavy recruiting class for the 2025 cycle.

Vanderbilt

  • National ranking: 68th
  • Total commits: 9
  • Top-ranked commit: 4-star safety Carson Lawrence | No. 366 overall player | No. 31 S

Vanderbilt took a step back in 2023, finishing the year with a 2-10 record and an 0-8 record in the SEC play. The Commodores are 2-22 in SEC play during the Clark Lea era. Two of Lea’s previous three classes squeaked into the top-50, but getting there this cycle may be a difficult task.
