Poll: Biggest impact of the 2013 signees
By Chris Low
We've seen the class rankings and which teams supposedly scored the biggest on signing day.
Now, it's time to predict who of the 2013 signees will have the biggest impact next season in the SEC.
Yes, it's a bit of a crapshoot at this point, but all fans are wondering who of the newcomers might be able to make the biggest difference in 2013.
We'll let you make the call in our SportsNation poll.
We've come up with five choices, and I'm sure there are a few names you think should be on there that aren't.
Even so, all five of the choices listed were highly recruited players who should be in a position to help their teams right away.
None of the five we've selected were early enrollees and already on campus, so that means we'll have to wait until preseason practice to see them in action.
Ole Miss defensive end Robert Nkemdiche, Auburn defensive end Carl Lawson and Florida cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III were the top three prospects in the country, according to ESPN's rankings. Arkansas running back Alex Collins was No. 57 on the ESPN 150 list and Texas A&M receiver Ricky Seals-Jones No. 61. At their respective positions, they were all top-10 players nationally.
So go ahead and cast your votes, and we'll take a look at the results later this week.
