Recruiting the SEC - Three Months to Go

With just under three months left until signing day (February 5, 2003), we
take a look at how Ole Miss and fellow SEC team schools are coming along with
their potential classes.
The early leaders in class quality are Alabama, LSU and Georgia. The trio have put together
likely top 10 classes in the nation and have multiple top ten performers committed.
South Carolina and Arkansas follow close behind and are setting themselves up
for a run towards having top 15 classes. Auburn, Florida, Kentucky, Mississippi State,
Ole Miss, and Vanderbilt are showing potential while Tennessee still has
a lot of work to do.
Here's the breakdown by team in alphabetical order.
