Georgia and Tennessee are building national championship rosters

BY foxsports • August 18, 2015

The days of the SEC West ruling over the SEC East may soon be over as Tennessee and Georgia appear to be stacking their rosters with the talent to challenge not only every team in their conference, but rivaling any team in the nation according to 247Sports.

The accumulation of talent begins at quarterback for both schools. Georgia currently has commits from 2016 five-star quarterback Jacob Eason and potential 2017 five-star quarterback Baily Hockman. While Tennessee landed two elite quarterbacks in 2015 in Sheriron Jones and Quinten Dormady, have a commitment from potential 2016 All-American Jarrett Guarantano and are considered among the favorites to land 2017's top overall prospect, quarterback Hunter Johnson. 

The near future of quarterback recruiting between to the two schools could get interesting as top 2018 quarterback prospect Trevor Lawrence lives in Georgia but is believed to be a Tennessee lean. 

In addition to the quarterbacks, both schools have recently reeled in elite defensive linemen to their programs. Georgia's 2015 haul included Trent Thompson, Jonathan Ledbetter, Natrez Patrick and D'Andre Walker while the Volunteers countered with Kahlil McKenzie, Kyle Phillips, Shy Tuttle, Andrew Butcher and Darrell Taylor. 

Both schools are currently vying for the signatures of several elite 2016 prospects including: defensive lineman Derrick Brown, defensive back Nigel Warrior, athlete Mecole Hardman, receiver Kyle Davis and running back Elijah Holyfield. 

These are the names to know in the future, as both programs have the makings to become the next great dynasty in college football. As long as they keep their recruiting momentum moving forward, the East could quickly turn into a two-team race with the victor playing in Atlanta for the SEC title and likely playoff spot on an annual basis.
