College football recruiting: Top recruits visiting SEC schools

Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

The South is the most talented region, and it will be a big recruiting weekend for many of the SEC's top schools.

Georgia at Tennessee

This is Tennessee's first big recruiting weekend. The Volunteers will attempt to pull the upset in front of a number of top recruits.

Tennessee is getting their first chances to impress Josh Malone, a top receiver from Gallatin (Tenn.) Station Camp High School. Malone is a four-star recruit who could play immediately for the Volunteers. The Volunteers will also look to impress O'Fallon (Ill.)'s Dewayne Hendrix, a very impressive four-star defensive end.

Havelock (N.C.)'s Derrell Scott, a four-star running back, will also be making an appearance. Tennessee will be looking to showcase its need for a dynamic back like Scott.

Tennessee is putting together one of the better recruiting classes in the country as head coach Butch Jones tries to restore the Vols on Rocky Top.

Arkansas at Florida

The Gators finally have a night game in the Swamp and are taking advantage of it with some major recruiting visitors.

Lorenzo Featherston, of Greensboro (N.C.) Page High School, is a four-star defensive end who has explosive skills off the edge. Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure's Bryce Dixon, one of the top tight ends in the country, will be on his official visit to Gainesville. David Sharpe, after first saying that he would visit Florida State this weekend, will also be in Gainesville according to multiple sources. Sharpe is from Jacksonville (Fla.) Providence High School.

Florida still has a strong chance to finish with a top-five recruiting class.

Ole Miss at Auburn

Auburn will have a chance to go 4-1 on this young season and take another step on the path to bowl eligibility. The crowd should be strong: sitting among them will be Tucker (Ga.) defensive tackle Elisha Shaw, a four-star, and Auburn (Ala.) four-star linebacker Rashaan Evans.

Auburn is doing an excellent recruiting job under new head coach Gus Malzahn.

Maryland at Florida State

Florida State's big visit weekend will be in a few weeks when the Seminoles host the Miami Hurricanes. One big uncommitted prospect visiting this weekend is four-star athlete Montae Nicholson, of Monroeville (Pa.) Gateway High School. Nicholson can play receiver, corner and safety. Most believe he is a battle between Penn State and Pitt.

TCU at Oklahoma

Wescott Eberts has more on the big recruiting weekend at Oklahoma.

Kentucky at South Carolina

Dexter Wideman, a Florida State commit on the defensive line, seems like a prime candidate to flip to the in-state Gamecocks. Out of Saluda (SC), he'll be taking yet another visit to Columbia.
