According to composite rankings from 247Sports, the SEC has four of the nation’s eight most talented teams. The rankings were updated Thursday morning with Alabama taking a firm grasp on the top spot.
The Crimson Tide’s current roster boasts an incredible 18 5-stars and 50 4-stars. Ohio State, USC, Georgia and Florida State round out the top five.
No. 6 LSU and No. 8 Auburn give the SEC half of the top eight teams on the list. The Big 10 comes in second in this regard with two teams: No. 2 Ohio State and No. 7 Michigan.
While every other conference is represented in the top five, the Big 12 doesn’t make an appearance until Texas at No. 13.
Other SEC teams listed are No. 12 Tennessee, No. 15 Texas A&M, No. 17 Ole Miss, No. 18 Florida, No. 22 Arkansas, No. 24 Mississippi State, No. 27 South Carolina, No. 31 Kentucky, No. 42 Missouri and No. 46 Vanderbilt.
Having all 14 teams in the top 50 most talented programs is an accomplishment by itself and it shows the true depth of the SEC.
