ESPN.com colleague Mark Schlabach has tweaked his Way-Too-Early Top 25 for the 2014 season to reflect the recent signing classes, and Alabama moved up to No. 2 behind Florida State.
The Crimson Tide signed the nation's top-ranked class, according to ESPN's RecruitingNation. It's the third straight year that Nick Saban has reeled in the No. 1 class in the country. Seven of the top 10 classes nationally belong to SEC schools.
Schlabach also has Auburn at No. 6 and Georgia at No. 8 in his revised Top 25.
The other SEC schools to make the Top 25 are South Carolina at No. 12, LSU at No. 13, Texas A&M at No. 15 and Florida at No. 23. All seven of the SEC schools in Schlabach's latest Top 25 signed top 20 classes nationally.
