All 10 of the Big 12’s teams and 10 of the SEC’s 14 member institutions will participate in this year’s event.
This will be the fifth year that a bye in the league schedule for participating teams was created to accommodate the single-day format. The four SEC teams not participating will play each other in conference games the same day.
Kentucky (3), Georgia (5), Florida (12), Alabama (17) and Auburn (21) each have recruiting classes that rank among the top 25 of ESPN’s RecruitingNation Class Rankings. Eighteen of ESPN’s Top 100 recruits signed with SEC schools, including 11 of the top 50 players.
