SEC football recruiting roundup (August 21, 2016)

NCAA Football: SEC Media Day Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

As the season is approaching, commits seem to be downsizing. This past week, only three SEC schools received commits. Here’s what went down.



Jordyn Peters (3* 2017 S, Muscle Shoals, AL)

South Carolina

Hamsah Nasirildeen (4* 2017 S, Concord, NC)

MJ Webb (4* 2017 SDE, Madison, GA)


Ty Chandler (4* 2017 RB, Nashville, TN)

Who made a splash?

South Carolina and Tennessee made the biggest of splashes this past week as a combined three four-star players were acquired by the two programs with the Gamecocks holding claim to two of them in Hamsah Nasirildeen and MJ Webb. Will Muschamp is doing a stout job on the recruiting trail and it’s begun to show. The Gamecocks have the No. 16 recruiting class in the country in the 2017 class and No. 8 in the SEC at this juncture.

The Vols meanwhile got a big boost with Ty Chandler as he’s just the fourth four-star player in Butch Jones’ 2017 class with a slew of three stars filling up the chart. Chandler is an outstanding talent from in-state, calling Nashville home, and is the Vols’ second-best recruit so far in the 2017 class behind safety Maleik Gray of LaVergne.
