SEC Weekly Recruiting Roundup: Texas A&M Lands Another Wide Receiver
Every Wednesday here at The SEC Blog, we will update you on the latest commits, news and rumors in the recruiting world.
Texas A&M kept up its momentum with the commitment of Kyrion Parker, a 3-star wide receiver who had previously been committed to LSU. Parker is a 6'3", 195-pounder that 247Sports.com ranks as the No. 53 wide receiver in the country.
Outside linebacker/athlete Larenz Bryant pledged to play for head coach Steve Spurrier and the South Carolina Gamecocks in 2013. Bryant is a 4-star linebacker from Charlotte, N.C., and is ranked as the top player in the state of North Carolina according to 247Sports.com. He will be a big asset Lorenzo Ward's defense once he steps on campus.
James Franklin is on a roll, folks. The Vanderbilt Commodores stayed hot on the recruiting trail this week with the commitment of 6'4", 220-pound defensive end Landon Stokes. Stokes chose the 'Dores over SEC offers from Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Missouri.
5'11", 170-pound cornerback Donovan Sheffield for the Class of 2015. Sheffield is a Nashville local, and is the first commitment for the Commodores in the Class of 2015.
Tennessee got some offensive line help with the commitment of 6'10", 297-pound offensive tackle Dan Skipper from Arvada, Colo. He's rated as a 3-star prospect by 247Sports.com, and still has plenty of room to grow into his frame.
Kentucky added a player for the Class of 2013 this week, when 6'4", 296-pound Ramsey Meyers pledged to Joker Phillips and the Wildcats. Meyers is unranked by 247Sports.com and chose the Cats over offers from UCF and Georgia State.
Joining Meyers in the Bluegrass state will be kicker Austin MacGinnis. MacGinnis is a native of Wedowee, Ala., and Kentucky was his only Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) scholarship offer at the time of his commitment.
Mississippi State's door remained open this week, and wide receiver Scott Austin walked right through. The 6'4", 185-pounder from Biloxi, Miss., is rated as the No. 10 player in the state of Mississippi. The Bulldogs have commitments from five of the top 10 in-state players in 2013.
