SEC Recruiting Update

We're now just under a week out from National Signing Day, so let's take a look at where all the teams are at present.

First up, here is how each school is doing in the overall rankings. The figures in parenthesis are the change from last week's update. As a reminder, Rivals only publishes its top 50 and ESPN only publishes its top 25.

Team Rivals Scout 247 ESPN
Alabama 1 (-) 1 (-) 1 (-) 1 (-)
Arkansas 29 (+2) 13 (+2) 22 (+1) -
Auburn 20 (-2) 21 (-4) 20 (-3) 15 (+1)
Florida 4 (-) 5 (-) 5 (-) 4 (-)
Georgia 21 (-4) 17 (+1) 11 (-) 5 (-)
Kentucky - 34 (-4) 49 (-4) -
LSU 15 (-3) 7 (+5) 12 (+1) 16 (-3)
Mississippi 41 (+1) 59 (-3) 48 (-6) -
Miss State 30 (+4) 18 (+1) 24 (+2) -
Missouri 49 (-2) 38 (-3) 36 (-1) -
South Carolina 13 (-2) 9 (-) 13 (-1) 14 (+1)
Tennessee 11 (+2) 19 (+4) 16 (-1) 20 (-)
Texas A&M 10 (-1) 12 (-6) 10 (-) 12 (-3)
Vanderbilt 25 (-) 32 (+1) 41 (+3) 23 (-)

Because the different sites have their different ways of calculating things, there are a lot of conflicting results. Georgia fell four spots in Rivals while remaining about even in the others. LSU jumped five spots in Scout's rankings while losing ground in Rivals and ESPN.

All of the services have Arkansas and Mississippi State moving up, while Auburn, Missouri, and Ole Miss slid in most or all the rankings. There aren't a lot of big moves as many of the players who are going to commit before signing day have done so, while most of the rest are going to wait until the big day to announce.

Here is the same table for average rank. Average rank is not available for ESPN's rankings.

Team Rivals Scout 247
Alabama 6 (-) 7 (-) 1 (-)
Arkansas 31 (-) 21 (-) 20 (+4)
Auburn 8 (-) 9 (-) 11 (-3)
Florida 4 (-1) 4 (-1) 5 (-2)
Georgia 18 (-) 10 (-) 10 (+1)
Kentucky - 48 (-) 45 (+2)
LSU 14 (-1) 12 (+2) 9 (+1)
Mississippi 26 (+1) 37 (-) 35 (-)
Miss State 38 (+2) 22 (+3) 32 (+2)
Missouri 34 (-) 26 (+4) 27 (+1)
South Carolina 22 (-) 19 (-) 17 (+1)
Tennessee 20 (+1) 20 (-) 22 (-)
Texas A&M 15 (+1) 17 (-1) 13 (-1)
Vanderbilt 24 (+1) 33 (+1) 40 (-2)

There is a lot less movement in this one as we're dealing with averages instead of raw numbers. I don't understand how some of these results come about though. Scout has Missouri falling three spots in the overall rankings while rising four spots in the average rankings. The only change for them in the last week was them flipping a three-star safety away from Houston. Mississippi State is up across the board in all the rankings after only adding a single three-star linebacker. It just goes to show how jumbled up teams are in the middle of the rankings.

The only thing that all of the services seem to agree upon is that Alabama and Florida are among the very best in the country and Kentucky has the worst class in the conference. Even Scout, which is the only service not to have UK last among SEC teams in the overall rankings, has the Wildcats' class last in the league in average rank.
