The SEC Grabbed Players From 23 States Last Signing Day

Wednesday figures to be a wild day around MrSEC Headquarters.  Obviously, we’ll keep you up to date on how all 12 schools’ classes are coming together as the day progresses.  We’ll also give you a good state by state look at the geographic battles being waged between SEC rivals.

On that front, we thought it would be interesting to go back to last signing day and examine where the league’s talent came from.

In 2010, a grand total of 305 players signed with SEC programs.  Those 305 players came from 23 different states.  Here was the breakdown by state last February:

A few interesting notes on last year’s class:

* Georgia provided the SEC with more players last year than Florida.  Of course, with Miami, Florida State, South Florida, UCF, FAU and FIU in the Sunshine State, it might not be as easy to raid Florida for players as it used to be.

* Mississippi and Alabama both produced more SEC-caliber talent last year than Louisiana.  The Pelican State should bounce back nicely this year with an improved crop of players.

* More than 60% of SEC signees came from four states: Georgia, Florida, Mississippi and Alabama.

* SEC schools grabbed more prospects out of Texas (15) than they did Tennessee (12), Arkansas (8) or Kentucky (4).

* California (9) produced more SEC signees than did either Arkansas or Kentucky.

* Kentucky produced fewer signees than Ohio, North Carolina and Oklahoma.  (They produced five apiece as compared to the Commonwealth’s four.)

* Be sure to bang around here on signing day.  Here’s guessing there’ll be a crash or too, but just keep hittin’ that refresh button.  Our servers will be smoking by day’s end.
