An overall look at how the 14 schools in the Southeastern Conference fared Wednesday on Signing Day.

___

EAST DIVISION

FLORIDA

National rankings (Rivals 7; Scout 10).

Best in class: Jalen Tabor, CB, Washington, D.C. Already enrolled in school, Tabor is a significant addition since starting CBs Loucheiz Purifoy and Marcus Roberson left school early for the NFL.

Best of the rest: David Sharpe, OL, Jacksonville, Fla. Sharpe should help fill the team’s biggest need.

Late addition: Treon Harris, QB, Miami. Coach Will Muschamp convinced Harris to switch from Florida State to Florida, prying a gifted athlete away from the defending national champion.

One that got away: Adoree’ Jackson, ATH, Gardena, Calif. A budding track star, Jackson probably would have given Florida a top-five class. But he chose USC over Florida, LSU and UCLA.

NOTE: Muschamp finds it amusing to see other staffs celebrate signing day. “They film these staff rooms and the staffs all cheer when they get the (guy),” he said. “Most of the time, you know. You know if you’re getting them and you know if you’re not. If you haven’t talked to them in 48 hours, you’re not getting them. So that’s an indicator. If you’re on the phone that morning with mom and dad and brother and uncle, you’re probably going to sign them. But still, you never know. It’s always a little stressful, a little anxious.”

GEORGIA

National rankings (Rivals 8; Scout 12).

Best in class: DE Lorenzo Carter, RB Sony Michel

Best of the rest: Chubb, TE Jeb Blazevich, DT Lamont Gaillard, WR Isaiah McKenzie, QB Jacob Park.

Late addition: Georgia made a successful late run to sign McKenzie, who attends the same high school as Michel. McKenzie had Virginia Tech, Florida and Mississippi on his list of finalists. Also, West Hall tight end Hunter Atkinson picked Georgia over Cincinnati, where he had committed.
