The SEC is the premier conference in college football. However, many non-SEC schools still have still scored top commitments for 2014 recruiting. Not every high school player wants to play in the SEC, although it seems that way.
Several non-SEC schools have convinced elite prospects to commit to their programs over becoming just another player in the talented conference. While the SEC will still land some of the best recruits in the country, several of the nation's best players are headed elsewhere.
An ACC program beat out several SEC schools for a pair of elite recruits. A quarterback who plays in the South will throw passes for a non-SEC program in the South, plus a pair of great running backs are also on this list.
