Here’s how much the SEC has dominated recruiting over the past decade
during the 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship Game at University of Phoenix Stadium on January 11, 2016 in Glendale, Arizona.

The SEC has dominated the college football world in the past 10 years, winning almost every title ever since Florida won the 2006 BCS national championship. Well, that success has led to the SEC dominating another facet of college football: recruiting.

The ESPN 300 is a ranking that ESPN has every year that shows the highest rated recruits in each recruiting cycle. According to the SEC Network, the SEC has been absolutely dominating everyone else at capturing those recruits over the past decade.

USC and Texas — the two teams to last play in a BCS title game or Playoff final four that didn’t involve the SEC — are also on the list. But otherwise, the sheer domination by the SEC is impressive. The only team that might not be impressed is Georgia, who is the only team in the Top 6 to have not won a title since 2000. In face, every other SEC team has won at least two over that time frame.

It’s probably only a matter of time before Ohio State catches up to the others on the list, but for now, it is still the SEC’s reign on top.
