There weren’t a lot of big visitors around the SEC this weekend -- mainly due to several neutral site games -- but that didn’t slow down the league’s recruiting news. From three ESPN 300 recruits who made commitments to Auburn losing a legacy commit, here is the top news from around the Southeastern Conference.
Biggest commit: Arkansas had a huge Saturday. The Razorbacks not only defeated UTEP 48-13, but also added a commitment from the top prospect Bret Beliema has landed while in Fayetteville. Five-star defensive end McTelvin Agim, an Arkansas native, committed to the Razorbacks on Saturday afternoon. The 6-foot-3, 268-pound defensive linemen is the ninth-ranked prospect in the ESPN 300 and he becomes the 14th commit for the Razorbacks, three of which are in the ESPN 300.
I am officially ending my recruitment and committing to The University of Arkansas🏈. Not time just yet for me to leave this state. #WPS 🐗🐗

In addition to Agim’s commitment to Arkansas, defensive end Marlon Davidson committed to Auburn and running back Elijah Holyfield, son of boxing legend Evander Holyfield, committed to Georgia. Davidson, the sixth-ranked defensive end and 37th-ranked prospect overall in the country, becomes the fifth ESPN 300 prospect to commit to Auburn. Holyfield, meanwhile, is the 181st-ranked player in the ESPN 300 and becomes the 17th commitment for the Bulldogs, nine of which are ranked in the top 300 players in the country.

Biggest visit: There weren’t a ton of top visits because of several neutral site games, but Florida, surprisingly, hosted a few top-ranked visitors for its game against New Mexico State. The Gators played host to three ESPN 300 wide receivers including Miami commit Sam Bruce and uncommitted prospects Nate Craig-Myers and Freddie Swain. After the Gators racked up 379 passing yards and completed at least two passes to six different wide receivers, the trio of talented wide outs appeared to be impressed with what they saw from the new Florida offense.
ESPN Junior 300 quarterback Jake Allen, a Florida commit, tweeted a picture of himself and Bruce, who was decked out in Florida gear.
