Add Ole Miss, which has recruited fine as NCAA sanctions have started to shift to the rearview, and the SEC has a preposterous 11 of the top 23 classes. And Bama’ s recruiting success has somehow not come at the expense of LSU, which has so far swept the best players in Louisiana after years of

With February’s National Signing Day now pretty well in the books, what seemed obvious after December’s Early Signing Period is now final. The SEC just had the best recruiting year for a conference in the history of recruiting rankings.

The SEC did something that’s never happened in the internet rankings era: finish with teams in four of the top five spots on the 247Sports Composite class rankings. That represents a slight falloff from December, when SEC teams had the top four all to themselves. Texas has since jumped up to No. 3, but the SEC’s success is still unprecedented.

Black History Month: Meet the man who created it

Black History Month: Meet the man who created it February marks Black History Month, a federally recognized, nationwide celebration that calls on all Americans to reflect on the significant roles that African-Americans have played in shaping US history. But how did this celebration come to be -- and why does it happen in February? require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); The man behind the holiday Carter G. Woodson, considered a pioneer in the study of African-American history, is given much of the credit for Black History Month.

The modern period has been a period of significant development in the fields of science, politics, warfare, and technology. The concept of the modern world as distinct from an ancient or medieval world rests on a sense that the modern world is not just another era in history , but rather the result

But, at least in recruiting evaluators’ eyes, the Ohio State class has quality, just not quantity. Recruiting is fairly static. The usual suspects round out the top five slots in the class rankings pretty much every year , and this year The SEC ’ s building the best recruiting year in modern history .

The SEC is now always the conference that comes closest to overloading the top of the rankings. But nobody’s ever done anything like this.

The conference has Alabama at No. 1, Georgia at No. 2, Texas A&M at No. 4, and LSU at No. 5. Compare that to the most dominant showings in previous years:

  • In 2004, the ACC had two of the top three classes.
  • In 2005, the top five all came from different conferences.
  • In 2006, the SEC had the No. 2 and 3 classes.
  • In 2007, the top three all came from different conferences.
  • In 2008, the top four all came from different conferences.
  • In 2009, the SEC had three of the top four, with No. 2 USC interrupting.
  • In 2010, the top three all came from different conferences.
  • In 2011, the top four all came from different conferences.
  • In 2012, the SEC had two of the top three.
  • In 2013, the SEC had two of the top three.
  • In 2014, the SEC had the top two and No. 5.
  • In 2015, the SEC had two of the top four.
  • In 2016, the SEC again had the top two and Nos. 5. and 6.
  • In 2017, the SEC had two of the top three.
  • In 2018, the SEC had two of the top five.

In ‘09, when LSU was No. 1 and Bama and Georgia followed in the 3-4 spots, the SEC had what you could call the most dominant recruiting year ever by a conference. It’s not a coincidence that the SEC won the next four national titles after that.

Florida scores major recruiting victory by flipping 4-star pass rusher from Alabama

Florida scores major recruiting victory by flipping 4-star pass rusher from Alabama In just his second season at Florida, Dan Mullen is closing in on a top 10 recruiting class. The first major news of National Signing Day — other than Miami’s Aussie punter — came out of the SEC. Khris Bogle, a four-star defensive end from Fort Lauderdale, flipped his commitment from Alabama to Florida in a major boon for Dan Mullen and the Gators. Bogle, ranked No. 66 overall in the class of 2019 by Rivals, verbally committed to Alabama during the All-American Bowl last month, but opted to stay in-state rather than sign with the Crimson Tide. And not only is it a loss for Alabama, it’s a loss for Miami, too.

Green has exceptional length at cornerback, and pairs it with good feet for his size. He’ s one of the 10 best And it’ s not just the skill positions. Keondre Coburn, a four-star defensive tackle from Houston Westfield is favoring the Longhorns. The SEC ’ s building the best recruiting year in modern history .

It just had a positive energy to it, I was 10 then but I could feel that the world was the best place to live in and lots of good stuff happened to me like graduating middle school with This year has been great for me so far, except for February 14th when there was a shooting less than 15 miles from where I live.

But there’s no analog to a conference sweeping the top four spots. If the SEC pulls it off this year, it will be an incomparable infusion of talent.

The top of a conference’s class is what matters most, because that’s where national championships are won.

Titles are reserved for programs that sign more blue-chip recruits than non-, and only 13 teams in the whole country met that threshold in 2018, including all four Playoff teams.

The SEC has seven teams above that cut right now for 2019, including three — A&M, Florida, and Tennessee — whose 2018 rosters left them just below the Blue-Chip Ratio line. The Vols got there by signing a five-star tackle, Darnell Wright, and four-star linebacker, Henry To’oto’o, in the last hour or so of the February NSD.

But the conference also has incredible recruiting depth.

Arkansas, which just won two freaking games, somehow has a top-25 class. So does Ole Miss, transitioning out of NCAA sanctions with a strong finish. South Carolina’s ahead of both of them, just inside the top 20 at No. 19.

Here’s How New College Football Coaches Did in Their First Recruiting Cycle

Here’s How New College Football Coaches Did in Their First Recruiting Cycle New Ohio State Head Coach Ryan Day assembled the No. 15 recruiting class in the country for 2019, which is by far the highest-rated class of the 26 FBS schools that hired a new coach this offseason, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings as of 5 p.m. ET on National Signing Day. 

They had the first known recruiters and faced many of the same challenges we have today. But laws imposed by the Roman Senate made this task more complicated. A citizen could not just be Best Practices. For a long time, all hiring for the army was directed from Rome at the direction of the

The Ducks have developed players quite well , and have had great success with quarterbacks. The Tigers had a rough first year in the SEC , but had a great bounce-back year , playing in the SEC Championship. Can Missouri begin to bring in a higher level of recruit thanks to that newfound

Thirteen of 14 teams finished in the top 36. The last of those is Mizzou, which just got hit with an NCAA bowl ban. Every team in the conference except Vanderbilt (at No. 56 nationally) is at least pulling its weight.

The top of the conference’s recruiting is unprecedented on its own. Rolling it in with the depth gives it an even more convincing case as the best.

The SEC always has a talent advantage. That’s natural when two of the clear top four recruiting states are in the heart of a league’s footprint, fellow top-four state Texas is now partly an SEC state, and other talent-rich states like Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, and the Carolinas are there, too.

But 2019 is a perfect storm. Bama’s signed a dominant class and has seen recent success with young players translate to the trail. Georgia’s become the closest thing to the Tide. Jimbo Fisher’s won the state of Texas back for A&M this year, one recruiting cycle after Tom Herman’s Longhorns dominated. And Bama’s recruiting success has generally not come at the expense of LSU, which swept the best players in Louisiana with two exceptions.

It’s already known that the SEC collects more talent than its peers. The gap’s only widening.
