If the SEC took the slightest of breathers last year in recruiting, the league that's won seven straight national titles and four of the last seven Heisman Trophies found a new gear and pushed the pedal to the floorboard.
The big four in college football's dominant conference — Alabama, Florida, LSU and Georgia — all signed big, top 10 classes packed with speed and size. This is no big surprise. It's the SEC teams just beneath the big four, and the depth they're creating, that's impressive in 2013.
