While there are some negatives for enrolling early, recruits do stand to gain a lot of experience in a short time by arriving in time for the spring.
All recruits want to make an impact immediately, but the ones who have the best chance are the ones who enroll early. Several recruits in the 2014 class have already enrolled in a college or are scheduled to do so.
Alabama may be getting its starting left tackle among a group of midyear enrollees, while Auburn has a receiver who should help right away. Plus, Tennessee has a pair of studs who should make an impact this spring.
