Now that we know officially which underclassmen have entered the NFL draft, let’s take a look at those SEC teams losing the most starters. If a player opened the 2012 season as a starter and only played two or three games before being lost for the season due to an injury or suspension, he wasn’t counted. An example would be LSU offensive tackle Chris Faulk. We’ll start in the West and look at the East later today. Texas A&M is losing the most full-time/regular starters in the West with 13 and Ole Miss the least with seven.
BOL: A look at where Alabama targets are visiting this weekend Most of Alabama's top remaining targets have concluded their official visits. A few who will take final visits this weekend before National Signing Day on Wednesday, February 6th.
Eddie Vanderdoes, five-star defensive tackle from Placer High School in Calif., will visit Alabama this weekend. Vanderdoes is a top priority for the Tide coaching staff. There is always a chance once a prospect visits and time to sway especially with signing day next week.
Dee Liner, four-star defensive tackle from Muscle Shoals High School in Ala., has hinted about an out-of-state visit for a while. He was visited by Georgia head coach Mark Richt on Thursday. Liner will visit Athens this weekend. He will have taken only two of his five official visits (Alabama/UGA). He will announce a decision on signing day.
Reuben Foster, five-star linebacker from Auburn High School in Ala., will take his final official visit this weekend to Auburn. Foster is set to announce his decision Monday night between Alabama, Auburn and Georgia.
Jarran Reed, three-star defensive tackle from East Mississippi Community College in Scooba, Miss., is scheduled to visit Ole Miss. Reed remains committed to the Rebels at this time. Alabama is considered a serious threat. He is also considering Florida. Alabama head coach Nick Saban visited Reed on Thursday night. It's very possible the visit to Oxford will not take place.
Montravius Adams, five-star defensive tackle from Dooly County High School in Vienna, Ga., will visit Auburn. Adams has taken official visits to Alabama, Clemson, Georgia and Florida. Some think Clemson is out of the equation, and Adams will stay in the SEC. Most predict Georgia. Auburn can make a big impact this weekend.
Jaynard Bostwick, four-star defensive tackle from West Centennial High School in Port St. Lucie, Fla., is visiting Florida. He named Alabama, Florida and Miami the final three. Most assume Miami is the team to beat. Florida has made a late push.
Prospects who will not take visits this weekend:
Alvin Kamara, four-star running back from Norcross High School in Ga. (Alabama/UGA)
Laremy Tunsil, five-star offensive tackle from Columbia High School in Lake City, Fla. (UGA/Alabama/Ole Miss)
Vonn Bell, five-star safety from Ridgeland High School in Rossville, Ga. (Tennessee/Ohio State/Alabama)
A'Shawn Robinson, five-star defensive tackle from Arlington Heights High School in Fort Worth, Texas (Texas/Alabama)
Antonio Conner, four-star safety from South Panola High School in Batesville, Miss. (Ole Miss/Alabama)
Henry Poggi, four-star defensive tackle from Gilman School in Baltimore, Md. (Michigan/Alabama)
Alabama football may be adopting a new focus, and it's starting to show in Nick Saban 's recruiting. While the team has made defense a priority in the past, it looks like there's a new focus on offense for 2013..
