In the SEC, it’s never too early to think about next year.
Winning championships is nice and all, but the true objective is to step into dynasty territory. To do that requires excellence not only on the field during the fall, but also throughout the year on the recruiting trail.
The push for even heralded 5-star prospects to commit—and stick with their commitments—earlier means waiting until January is often far too late.
Landing a big commitment early can potentially pay tremendous dividends for the remainder of the recruiting class as well.
When the prospect carries enough clout and is solid enough in his pledge, he can become an extra recruiter—with no real regulations.
Today we take a look at each team in the SEC and determine who the “dream” prospect to land might be.
To do so, we weigh a number of considerations, including in-state rank, positional need, competition for the prospect and overall splash.
