SEC leads the nation in football recruiting — by a long shot

While Vanderbilt fans are rejoicing in what's shaping up to be a stellar recruiting class, they should also realize that every other team in the SEC is reloading, too.

In fact, a whopping nine SEC teams rank in the Top 25 in recruiting, according to The Big 12 and Big 10 tied for second with four teams in the Top 25.

Here's where SEC teams stand:
1. LSU
4. Alabama
7. Georgia
10. Florida
12. South Carolina
15. Tennessee
16. Arkansas
22. Miss State
24. Auburn
41. Kentucky
48. Ole Miss
66. Vanderbilt

So we rank 66th out of 119 teams. Wish our offense had ranked 66 last season. By my count, we're ahead of only eight BCS-conference teams: UConn, Purdue, K-State, Louisville, Iowa State, Washington, Washington State and Syracuse.
