The SEC has five teams in the 2012 preseason polls, and three of those same five teams are in the top 10 of ESPN's latest recruiting rankings.
The rich just keep getting richer.
USC is No. 1 overall in ESPN's recruiting rankings for the 2013 class. Florida is No. 2 with Alabama checking in at No. 4, Auburn No. 6, Georgia No. 9 and LSU No. 10.
Nine SEC teams are currently ranked in the top 25 of ESPN's recruiting rankings, and it's always important to remember that these are only commitments. Nothing counts until that first Wednesday in February.
But rounding out the SEC schools in the top 25 are Texas A&M at No. 13, South Carolina No. 15, Vanderbilt No. 20 and Ole Miss No. 21.
Texas A&M already has 27 commitments for the 2013 class. Georgia is close behind with 26.
Florida has the most ESPN 150 prospects committed with eight, while Alabama has seven ESPN 150 prospects committed.
