The SEC is home to the best athletes in college football. The players in the conference play at a different speed than those in the Big 12, Pac-12, Big Ten and ACC.
The conference dominates the recruiting rankings each February, and its programs field the most talented teams in the country. The 2014 recruiting cycle will help continue the SEC's dominant recruiting tradition, as several elite recruits are locks to join the conference.
A big left tackle prospect will be playing in the SEC West. A pair of great prospects from Alabama will be choosing between the Iron Bowl schools. Also, a linebacker from Illinois will spurn the Big Ten for an SEC program.
