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

Welcome to Ole Miss Week. Red Cup Rebellion has been coping through this season as best they can (WARNING: The previous link goes to a page that currently features 2 photos of Ed Orgeron and one of the Tulane football team. How it remains functional is beyond my understanding of how the internet works)

Short set this morning as we’ve got a press lunch today.

I realize that many of you didn’t see the game, so here’s some highlights from the Geaux Zone. We’ll have the full replay up with the press conference notes later today.

(TigerVision now ranks behind JP and just ahead of the COX 4 HS Game of the Week in visual quality)

Rosetta at the Advoc was pleased with the effort, and Klienpeter at the Times-Pic liked the defensive intensity.

NCAA president and former LSU Chancellor Mark Emmert was in the building on Saturday and spoke on a variety of subjects. He was in attendance to celebrate the completion of one of the main parts of the old Flagship agenda, building a sizable endowment (now at $753 million).

BCS remained the same (LSU @ #5) and the window for chaos gets a little bit smaller.

It’s SCar-Auburn for the SEC title game, which Geaux Show listeners may remember means I lost my bet with Marvin and now have to shave off my beard. I predict i’m not going to enjoy the experience. Marvin being right, I mean.

15th-ranked Volleyball split the road games this weekend with a loss at Kentucky, while the Women’s basketball team came up short in the season opener on the road at Northwestern (not the one in Natchitoches)

Here’s a great story about former Tiger Leonard Marshall who will be a first-time HS football coach next year in NJ.
