Seven recruits have been scooped up by five different teams in the SEC since Tuesday. Let’s corral them all up here.


The Hogs picked up 3-star defensive end John Mincey on Tuesday.

The Homerville, Georgia native announced his commitment while taking an unofficial visit to Fayetteville, choosing the Razorbacks over Georgia among others. Mincey is ranked 99th in the state of Georgia, 43rd at his position and 999th overall in America. His commitment gives Arkansas 11 for 2018 so far, as their class ranks 41st in the nation and 10th among their SEC brethren.


The Tigers reeled in three-star safety Jamien Sherwood of Jensen Beach, Florida on Tuesday to give them their 11th commit of 2018 as well.

Their class is now 31st in the country and ninth in the SEC with the addition of Sherwood, who is listed 396th overall among all recruits, 32nd at his position and 63rd in The Sunshine State. Sherwood, who committed while on an unofficial visit to Auburn’s campus, also boasted offers from Miami and LSU among others.


Mizzou added to their already long list of commits they’ve reeled off in the past few days with two more on Wednesday. There was just one, but another was added while composing this post.

The Tigers added a pair of three-stars in offensive tackle Mike Ruth and outside linebacker La’Dedric Jackson.

Jackson hails from Montgomery, Alabama and is the 35th-ranked recruit from the state. Ruth, meanwhile, is a native of Coppell, Texas and is 137th overall in the football-rich Lone Star State. Mizzou now has 12 hard commits for 2018 and their class now ranks 12th in the SEC and 47th in the country with their new additions in tow.

Update: Welp. Mizzou got another. Let’s welcome in Tyrus Wheat.

Wheat is a native of Amite, Louisiana. The 6-foot-2, 194-pound safety is listed as a three-star recruit on 247Sports Composite and ranks 86th among all Louisiana recruits. Prior to committing, Tulane and Texas State were among those who were in on the class of 2018 defensive back.


Dan Mullen and the Bulldogs pulled in the best recruit of the bunch, landing three-star running back Fabian Franklin.

The Hattiesburg native is the third-ranked recruit in the state of Mississippi, only trailing fellow State commit and four-star wide receiver Malik Heath of Jackson and Heath’s high school teammate, three-star defensive end James Williams. Franklin is also ranked 18th among all running backs in his class and is the 371st overall recruit in America in 2018.

Franklin held offers from TCU, Michigan and LSU, among others.


The Gamecocks got in on the fun as well on Wednesday, as they learned that defensive end Kingsley Enagbare decided to commit.

Enagbare hails from Atlanta and attends Hapeville Charter High School. The 6-foot-4, 257-pound defensive end plays on the strong side and is listed as the 52nd ranked player in the state of Georgia. Nationally, he’s ranked 508th in the country and is in the Top 25 at his position, listed at 21st among all SDEs.

Enagbare boastd offers from Penn State Nittany Lions, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and Ole Miss Rebels among others prior to his commitment on Wednesday.

South Carolina’s recruiting class swelled up to 29th in the nation and eighth in the SEC with the addition of their newest commit.
