If you paid attention to the 2013 recruiting class, you would know that the SEC raked in top recruit after top recruit. There is a truckload of talent heading to the conference that already runs college football and a lot of the elite players will be playing on the defensive side of the ball.
Players could see the field from day one due to a position opening, lack of depth at a certain position or the fact that a particular recruit is just so good it is impossible to keep him off the field. In many cases, it is a combination of all three, and the coaching staff has no choice but to throw the young man into the lion’s den and see how he does.
It is amazing to think that these players were playing at your local high school just a few months ago, and will now be playing against some of the top competition in college football the next year.
With many guys to choose from, here are a handful of SEC recruits that will take the field immediately as true freshmen.
