RecruitingNation links: SEC edition


From David Ching: Georgia wasn’t sure what it had when it signed James DeLoach 13 months ago. Now after a solid performance in 2012 and a strong spring thus far, the Bulldogs might have found their starting strongside linebacker.


From Michael DiRoccoInsider: The Gators opened spring practice up to the world over the weekend and among the observations was that a few players have emerged as potential stars in 2013.


From Gary LaneyInsider: With the Tigers having to replace their entire defensive line, it gives some talented but inexperienced players a chance to shine.

More from LaneyInsider: By landing WR recruit Tony Upchurch, the Tigers nabbed their seventh commit for the 2014 class, and their third from Texas.


From Sam Khan Jr.: After an 11-win season, the Aggies have new expectations going into 2013.


From Alex Scarborough: Alabama opens up spring practice with a bad taste in its mouth. Nick Saban and the Tide are trying to push past an uncharacteristically tumultuous offseason.

From Greg OstendorfInsider: The opening of spring practice in Tuscaloosa brought with it visits from some high-profile recruits, including several of the best from Louisiana.
