Where did top corner recruits Patrick Surtain and Tyson Campbell go?
The SEC lands the two superstar DBs.
Tyson Campbell is the prototype.
The 6-2, 175-pounder from American Heritage in Miami was in the mix for the Hurricanes, and Alabama was right there, but in the end, he put on the Georgia had to add to the already fantastic class.
The Bulldogs need to replace a few key parts, and now they have their lockdown corner for the next few years, if he starts right away.
But Patrick Surtain Jr. was the big man in the corner class.
The son of the former NFL star of the same name, the 6-2, 192 pounder is really long, really sound, and really fast. He erases one half of the field, and has the skills to lock down on any No. 1 receiver.
And he broke LSU’s heart.
It looked like he’d be a lock for the Tigers all along, and Auburn and Clemson were right there, but in the end, he pulled off a bit of a shocker by going with Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide.
And now the two top SEC teams from last year loaded up with the two star corners.
The big loser? Miami.
These were two playmakers in Mark Richt’s backyard, and he wasn’t able to put a fence around the area and keep them home.
And the SEC has two NFL prospects to keep an eye on for the next few years. It’s a rich get richer moment for the Dawgs and Crimson Tide, and they both will be involved right away.
