Best ClassBilly Kennedy and his staff at Texas A&M have put together their best recruiting class to date. The Aggies 2015 recruiting class consists of three players ranked from No. 25 to No. 32 – Tyler Davis, Elijah Thomas and D.J. Hogg. Plus another unranked four-star in scoring guard Admon Gilder. With the addition of Davis and Thomas, the Aggies have a very talented and strong frontcourt headed their direction. Both check in at 6-foot-9 and over 250-pounds and while both have size, their games differ a great deal.
1. Texas A&M|
14. South Carolina
Other WinnersFor most it would be a surprise to see Auburn near the top of the SEC recruiting class rankings, but for those that are familiar with Bruce Pearl it’s not that all that startling. Pearl was a dynamic recruiter at Tennessee and just as he did when he was a Volunteer, Pearl has established himself in the South, reeling in Scout.com’s No. 58 player and Georgia native Danjel Purifoy. He also plucked Maryland transfer Trayvon Reed out of the area and the same AAU program. But there’s more. The Auburn Tigers are expected to also sign No. 61 Horace Spencer, four-star California guard New Williams and Junior College standout T.J. Dunans. This a program building class Pearl and his staff. Billy Donovan and Florida have the SEC’s third best recruiting class heading into signing day. KeVaughn Allen and Noah Dickerson are both ranked in Scout.com’s top 75 and are their best incoming recruits. But Kevarius Hayes and Keith Stone, both three-star recruits, are talents and will help the Gators. LSU, who holds a pledge from Scout.com’s No. 2 recruit Ben Simmons, and Vanderbilt’s four-man recruiting class check in at No. 4 and No. 5 respectively in the conference rankings. Since John Calipari has arrived at Kentucky he’s not only sit atop the SEC conference rankings, but also the national rankings. At this time, the Wildcats hold just one commitment -- No. 61 Charles Matthews. As usual, Kentucky is involved with the nation’s elite and it would be a safe assumption that they’ll finish at No. 1 in the SEC rankings when the dust settles.
