No. of 247Sports Top 25 recruiting classes: Nine
Top Class: Alabama
This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone, as the SEC is the top recruiting conference in America. Alabama has the No. 1 class in the country due to boasting a talented 19-man class that has 15 4-star prospects.
Texas A&M has a class ranked No. 2 nationally that can rival the Crimson Tide's group. With 18 total commitments, head coach Kevin Sumlin must be particularly proud he has two 5-star recruits headed to College Station.
Next is Auburn and South Carolina, sitting No. 5 and No. 6, respectively. The Tigers have 17 commitments, while the Gamecocks have 20. Tennessee has the same amount of pledges as the team in Columbia, and the Volunteers are ranked No. 7.
LSU isn't far behind with a 13-man class that is ranked No. 10, plus Georgia has a class of 13 commitments that checks in at No. 13. The surprise of the conference has to be Mississippi State, as the Bulldogs have 18 commitments and the nation's No. 14 class.
Finally, there's Florida and its group of 10 pledges at No. 21. It also should be mentioned that Kentucky is No. 26 with 12 commitments.
