Aggies up four spots in recruiting rankings
By Edward Aschoff
If you put a lot of stock in recruiting rankings, the future really does look pretty bright for Kevin Sumlin in College Station, Texas.
With the addition of Ricky Seals-Jones, the top prospect in the state of Texas and the No. 13 overall player on the ESPN 150 list, the Aggies moved from 10th to sixth in ESPN's 2013 class rankings . Texas A&M now has 34 total verbal commitments in its 2013 class, including six ESPN 150 members and nine ESPN 300 members.
The Aggies aren't the only SEC team cleaning up in the class rankings. Florida continued to hold the top spot in the rankings, with its 24 commitments. Ten of those verbals are ESPN 150 members and 14 of them are ESPN 300 members. Alabama is steady at No. 4 with its 19 verbal commitments and nine ESPN 150 members.
LSU (No. 9) and Georgia (No. 10) both fell one spot in the rankings, but round out the top 10 for the SEC.
The SEC has eight teams within the top 25 of the class rankings. Auburn sits at 12th, South Carolina is 16th, Vanderbilt is 17th and Ole Miss is 21st.
Twelve SEC teams round out the top 40 of the class rankings, with Mississippi State coming in at 27th, Tennessee at 28th, Missouri at 34th and Arkansas at 38th.
