Every week throughout the season, we’ll provide some video highlights of the SEC’s top commits.


Brian Robinson, RB, 4-star Alabama commit (Tuscaloosa, Ala.)

Yet another top running back has chosen Alabama as Robinson becomes third back to join a loaded 2017 Crimson Tide backfield.

Robinson may not be the bruiser Heisman favorite Derrick Henry is at 6-foot-3, 242-pounds, but with 447 rushing yards in a single-game earlier this year, setting a school record, there’s no doubt this kid can run.

With or without Robinson, the Tide will have no problem running the football in 2017. But with him look out, Bama looks more and more dangerous each week. Just look at the highlights of his 447-yard day.

Trevon Diggs, WR, 4-star Alabama commit (Rockville, Md.)

Continuing their domination of the SEC this week, the Tide signed another top recruit, albeit this one being a bit more of a surprise, Maryland product WR Trevon Diggs. Just about everybody had the wide receiver going to Maryland, just like older brother Stefon Diggs, but it looks like Diggs picked tradition over family.


Alabama is a long way from Maryland, but you can’t fault the talented wideout for choosing his school based on merit rather than familiar pressures. Though Maryland is in the Big 10 now, the football program just doesn’t have the pull to it that Bama does. Boy what a week for Alabama football.

At 6-foot, 183-pounds Diggs is the No. 6 Athlete of the 2016 class and after watching his brother tear up the NFL as a fifth-round pick, he’ll be a welcomed addition in Tuscalooa.

Javon Wims, WR, 4-star Georgia commit (Jacksonville, Fla.)

Though the Bulldogs struggles continue on the field  (a 27-3 win over Kentucky should get them back in the right direction) it has been in on the recruiting circuit that the university continues to shine.

“The main reason I committed to Georgia was not only being a fan, but I had a good relationship with [wide receiver] coach Bryan McClendon,” Wims told DawgNation this week. “I like what Georgia has done with its previous receivers, like most recently A.J. Green. I just like the way the program sets up with the that they have coming in, too. That’s Jacob Eason.”

The only question left for the wideout is who the coach will be in Athens when he arrives after another down year for 15-year head coach Mark Richt.

“I really hope everything works out and coach Mark Richt will be there next season,” he said. “I hope the staff will be fine and that would pretty much solidify my decision, but for now Georgia is where I am going.”

Georgia might want to think about keeping Richt around because they can’t afford to lose this 6-foot-4 receiver for next season.

John Franklin III, QB, JUCO transfer Auburn commit (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.)

After joining Florida State in 2013, Franklin played in only three games for the Seminoles before leaving after QB Everett Golson transferred to the university. Now at East Mississippi Community College, Franklin again received an offer from the SEC school, Auburn. He accepted the offer earlier this week.

“They say they’re missing a run game at the quarterback position and that’s what they think I can bring,” Franklin told AL.com. “At least with Cam Newton and Nick Marshall, that’s what they’re missing at the position and I feel like I’d be a great fit in their offense.”

The Tigers have just 117 rushing yards from their quarterbacks through nine games this season.

Kellen Diesch, OL, 4-star Texas A&M commit (Trophy Club, Texas)

And finally, after a tough loss to Auburn, at least the Aggies got a bit of good news on the recruiting trail as they signed 4-star OL Kellen Diesch to help shore up an A&M offensive line that ranks tied for seventh in the SEC for sacks given up with 16.


The 6-foot-7, 270-pound tackle picked the Aggies over SEC schools Florida and Tennessee as well as a number of other top football programs.
