The SEC had a rough day in terms of jumping the gun. Sure, the conference got plenty of recruits on national signing day. However, there were a few mistakes made online by schools.

Auburn and Alabama battled for Rashaan Evans, whom 247Sports lists as a 5-star linebacker. When national signing day arrived, the Tigers were apparently confident the star recruit would pick them.

Both Tigers teams learned a valuable lesson on this day.
