Overview:  The SEC has had a strong fall, with six teams among our top twenty-five and three others with two-man starts that could also join that elite group this fall with an addition or two.  Florida heads the pack with another top five class, while Alabama, Mississippi State, Auburn, LSU, and Arkansas join them in the top twenty-five nationally.  It was a solid conference class that adds newcomers who can help at almost every school in the SEC.
