An SEC program has had the No. 1 recruiting class every year since 2009, according to 247Sports. This year is no different. Alabama is on top of the 247Sports recruiting rankings, and three other SEC programs are ranked in the Top 10.
Many non-SEC fans complain about the attention and hype about the league. But if they want the SEC recruiting monopoly to end, a non-SEC program will need to ascend to the top of the rankings.
A pair of Big Ten programs are on pace to collect enough talent to do just that. The ACC also has two teams that do not fear the SEC and are recruiting with the confidence and success they have had in the past.
