Signing Day 2013: Where The SEC’s Talent Came From

mrsec stat analysis newAlready today we’ve shown you the level of overall talent production from each of the 11 states in the SEC’s geographic footprint.  From 3-star prospects to 5-star recruits to the percentage of tip-top talent in each state that decided to stay close to home, you already know which SEC states had the most big fish to catch in 2013.

But where, specifically, did all of the SEC’s new talent come from?  Inside and outside the SEC footprint?  All degrees of prospects?  High schoolers and jucos?

The chart below shows you where each school went for its talent.  And over the next day we’ll break this information down further and provide analysis for all 14 SEC schools.  But first, here’s an overall snapshot of where SEC recruiters went shopping for their groceries this year (in alphabetical order):

Observations

*  The 14 SEC schools snagged prospects from 29 different states in 2013.

*  The only states not represented on the list were: Alaska, Connecticut, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

*  Of the 348 players signing with SEC schools Wednesday (or Thursday in Alex Collins’ case), 270 came from within the geographic footprint of the Southeastern Conference.  The league’s 14 programs went outside SEC states for just 78 recruits.  That’s a whopping 77.5% of all incoming SEC players who were recruited and signed from within the league’s borders.

*  The non-SEC states most often raided for talent: California produced 14, Kansas 11 (counting junior college signees), Virginia 10, and North Carolina nine.

*  Every SEC school but Texas A&M signed at least one prospect from Florida.

*  Every SEC school but Texas A&M signed at least one prospect from Georgia.

*  Texas A&M had more in-state signees than any other SEC program, inking 22 players from the Lone Star State.

*  The table below shows which SEC states produced the most SEC signees — high school or juco, 2-stars, 3-stars, 4-stars, and 5-stars — this week.  Florida has added two players since signing day and both were in-state signees, pushing the Sunshine State past the Peach State for the first time in several years:

 

  SEC State   SEC Signees
  Florida   58
  Georgia   57
  Texas   36
  Mississippi   28
  Alabama   24
  Louisiana   20
  Tennessee   19
  Missouri   11
  Arkansas   8
  S. Carolina   7
  Kentucky   4

12 of the top 25 classes are from the SEC, next closest is ACC and PAC with 4 of the top 25.  The SEC wins another national championship.

 @John at MrSEC  @OtownGator 4 and 5 stars, Florida 52-Georgia 24.  Just being a smart-ass (expansion), but should the SEC protect Florida now?

"Every SEC school but Texas A&M signed at least one prospect from Georgia."

 

!! --> JaQuay Williams, a four-star prep WR, was the No. 1 prospect from Georgia in 2012.

You can hold your exclamation points.  JaQuay Williams was at Fork Union Military Academy in Virginia this year... which means he counts as a Virginia recruit.  I think we made it clear above that we're looking at where teams went this year to recruit or re-recruit this year's signees.

Kentucky also did not sign anyone from Georgia ..which was surprising given recent history.  Bigger surprise was we got the 2nd most recruits from Florida !!

Per capita, Arkansas produces as many SEC players as Florida. The outliers are Mississippi and Georgia, which produce more (many more in the case of MS) recruits per capita than other SEC states. Arkansas is by far the least populous (2.9 million) state in the SEC. I don't know what is Kentucky's excuse.

    Our business has been mentioned on a blog in a negative way and I am not sure how I can get the anonymous blogger to remove the post.. I’ve emailed her but have had no response. What are my options and what should my next step be?.
