Grading the SEC signing classes

The grades are in for all 14 SEC signing classes, and according to the ESPN Recruiting team, nobody received worse than a B-.

Not bad, but not surprising, either.

All 14 of the SEC schools were ranked among the top 40 classes nationally, led by No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Florida. In fact, seven of the top 11 classes belonged to SEC schools. Ole Miss was No. 5, LSU No. 7, Texas A&M No. 8, Georgia No. 10 and Auburn No. 11.

Alabama has now had a top 3 class nationally for six straight years. The last time the Crimson Tide weren't ranked in the top 3 was 2007, Nick Saban's first class. The Crimson Tide were ranked No. 17 that year.
