The SEC just dominated National Signing Day 2014

National Signing Day is always an exciting time for college football fans across the nation.

But when you are a fan of a team from the Southeastern Conference we assume this is taken to another level.

Because, as the final few members of the 2014 recruiting class send in their signatures, the SEC has come out on top by a clear margin once again.

Here is how their dominance can be broken down into numbers:

The conference recruited 45 out of the top 100 nationally ranked prospects - the Big Ten with 16 commits for their schools were the closest competitors.

This trend transfers to five-star recruits; SEC (17), Big Ten (3), ACC (6), PAC 12 (1), Big 12 (1), other (1).

And when fans come to take stock of the days activities and check the top 10 recruiting classes of 2014 they will find SEC teams throughout the list - with 7 of the top ten schools representing the conference.

Only Florida State, Ohio State, and USC play their football outside of the SEC.

Of course when you have the likes of recruiting powerhouses like Alabama, LSU, and Georgia in your area it will always help when it comes to creating these statistics but the depth of the conference is truly frightening.

With the Seminoles having broken the conference's stranglehold on the national championship with their BCS victory in January it certainly looks like the SEC will be back in force come the 2014 season.

Here is the top 10 recruiting classes in full:

1 - Alabama

2 - LSU

3 - Ohio State

4 - Florida State

5 - Texas A&M

6 - Georgia

7 - Tennessee

8 - Auburn

9 - Florida

10 - USC

Which school's 2014 class are you most impressed with?
