The SEC’s Recruiting Dominance in 2016 is Staggering
One of college football's biggest days of the offseason wrapped up on Wednesday with the culmination of National Signing Day. While many people were talking about Michigan and Florida State, the Southeastern Conference dominated the day.
Three of the four major recruiting services ranked the Alabama signing class No. 1 in the country while more than half of the conference finished in the top 20. We know where every team ended up in the rankings, but just how much deeper were the classes in the SEC?
The SEC Network shared a graphic on Thursday that shows the clear gap that separates the nation's strongest conference with everyone else.
The Big 10 and ACC, which pulled in the second and third-most ESPN 300 signees, can't even combine classes to match the number of top players headed to the SEC.
It's clear that the SEC - despite the wishes of many college football fans around the nation - is restocking rather than regressing.
