The SEC has produced a number of outstanding wide receivers in recent years. In fact, the 2020 NFL Draft saw Jerry Jeudy, Henry Ruggs III and Justin Jefferson drafted in the first round.

Recently, Caleb Burton III — a 5-star player and the top receiver in the 2022 recruiting class — cut his list of preferred schools down to 12.

As you can see below, the native of Del Valle, Texas, has 5 SEC programs — Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia and LSU — in his top 12:

Those 5 programs will compete with Ohio State, Texas, Oklahoma, Oregon, Stanford, Clemson and USC for Burton’s services.

Per the 247Sports composite rankings, Burton is the No. 10 overall player in the 2022 class and the No. 3 overall recruit from the state of Texas.
