The Alabama Crimson Tide have reclaimed their usual status as the top recruiting team in the SEC West. Jimbo Fisher and the Texas A&M Aggies held the recruiting title last offseason.
However, reality has been harsh for the Aggies. Texas A&M failed to make a bowl game in 2022 and ended up having more than 20 players enter the transfer portal following the end of the regular season.
Texas A&M still has a lot of talent, but the Aggies were not ready to make the College Football Playoff last season.
Ole Miss (15 commits, No. 27 class) Man is it tough recruiting in the SEC West. The lowest recruiting rank in the division is No. 27.
Mississippi State (27 commits, No. 25 class) The Mississippi State Bulldogs went for quantity with the class of 2023. The Bulldogs focused less on the transfer portal and more on developing their own players.
Mississippi State signed only four four-star recruits to go with 22 three-star recruits.
Arkansas (20 commits, No. 22 class) Sam Pittman and Arkansas look to have an improved season in 2023. The Razorbacks added eight four-star recruits and 12 three-stars.
Arkansas (20 commits, No. 22 class) Arkansas signed the top two in-state recruits in the 2023 recruiting cycle.
