Auburn tops the list, just slightly ahead of Texas A&M, largely because the Tigers signed two quality signal-callers - Zeke Pike and Jonathan Wallace. Although both are three-star prospects, Pike was a U.S. Army All-American and many believe given his frame and natural ability he has a high upside.
The Aggies counter with Matt Davis, a Rivals250 prospect and the highest-rated quarterback heading to the SEC. Kentucky and Tennessee each grabbed four-star quarterbacks in Patrick Towles and Nathan Peterman, respectively. Peterman ranked eighth nationally among pro-style signal callers; Towles was No. 9.
Missouri got the biggest prize but Tennessee had the biggest and best class. All four Volunteer receiver signees are four-star prospects. Two incoming Vols - Drae Bowles and Jason Croom - are members of the Rivals250. Bowles also was an Army All-American.
Florida and Auburn each did extremely well at tight end, separating themselves a good bit from the pack in the SEC primarily because both signed two players at the position. Florida locked down Kent Taylor, the country's No. 1 tight end, and Colin Thompson, a four-star blocking specialist and Under Armour All-American.
No. 2 tight end recruit Ricky Parks, among the most athletic players in the class, is headed to Auburn. So is 6-foot-7 standout Darrion Hutcherson, a player with a very high upside.
Alabama landed five defensive tackles, an extremely high number. From the group, two earned four-star status. Both of those players - Korren Kirven and Dalvin Tomlinson -- announced for the Tide on signing day. Another Alabama defensive tackle signee, Alphonse Taylor, once was committed to Florida State.
Nobody in the country did better at end than Florida.
By the time the Gators were finished, they had signed five ends, two of whom are five-star prospects. Jonathan Bullard, an Army All-American is the country's No. 1 strongside end. Dante Fowler Jr., also a five-star recruit, is No. 3 among weekside ends.
Georgia also did very well at this spot, inking three four-star prospects, the headliner being Rivals100 recruit Jordan Jenkins. Arkansas signed seven ends, and each is a three-star recruit. The best of the group arguably is Darius Philon, a one-time Alabama verbal.
On the back end of the defense, Alabama and Florida were the SEC's biggest winners. The Tide rolled with four signees, including five-star recruit Landon Collins, a safety, and two four-star kids in Geno Smith and Travell Dixon, a standout junior college player.
Of the top 10 players listed at athlete nationally, Alabama landed two of them. They are Eddie Williams, who checks in at No. 1, and Cyrus Jones at No. 6. Both players expect to start their college careers at receiver, but are versatile enough to play defense. Williams, in particular, looks great in the secondary.
Josh Harvey-Clemons was a five-star pickup for Georgia. He'll start out at outside linebacker, but could see time at receiver. If he has trouble gaining weight in college, he easily could move to the secondary.
One of Mississippi State's top signees, Will Redmond, is likely to play either corner or safety, and should also be a factor on special teams.
