Alabama leading SEC recruiting race

The ESPN recruiting rankings were updated earlier this week, with Alabama checking in at No. 3 to lead all SEC teams.

Texas was No. 1 and Florida State No. 2 nationally.

On Thursday, the ESPNU 150 player rankings will be updated, which will probably shake up the team rankings some.

But right now, there are four SEC teams in the top 10. After Alabama at No. 3, Florida is No. 4, LSU No. 7 and Georgia No. 8.

Auburn, fresh off its first national championship since 1957, is No. 11. Arkansas is No. 18, Tennessee No. 23, South Carolina No. 24 and Ole Miss No. 25.

Among the five "On the cusp" teams are Kentucky and Mississippi State.
