Only a little over two months ago, two of SEC Football’s top teams were headlining college football’s top stage when Georgia defeated Alabama to win the 2021 CFP National Championship. Fast forward to today, and SEC Football’s 14 teams are all set to begin spring practice in the coming days, or have already begun.

With this, it means that we start to receive a small preview of the upcoming 2022 SEC Football season, as well as receive the first official look at some of the offseason’s transfers practicing with their new teams.

However, it also provides the first look at each teams freshman early-enrollees, some of which could play key roles in 2022. Here are 14 of those names (one from each team) to watch for as we enter spring practice across SEC Football. (All rankings courtesy of the 247Sports Composite)

14 SEC Football early-enrollees to watch for during 2022 spring practice

LB Jihaad Campbell – Alabama Crimson Tide

While a majority of the attention may be on Ty Simpson, a five-star quarterback who enrolled in Tuscaloosa back in December to practice with the team in anticipation of January’s CFP, as well as a few others such as speedy wide receiver Aaron Anderson, Campbell is the name to watch.

Also a five-star prospect, Campbell is a former Clemson commit who de-committed and signed with the Crimson Tide back in mid-December, giving Alabama two five-star edge rushers alongside in-state product Jeremiah Alexander. The IMG Academy (FL) product however could potentially play either outside or inside linebacker with the Crimson Tide next season, and could find his way onto the field very-early due to his versatility and athleticism.

OT E’Marion Harris – Arkansas Razorbacks

When the Razorbacks take the field this spring, there will not be many early-enrollees more-intriguing than Harris, one of the top overall players from the state of Arkansas during the 2022 recruiting cycle.

A four-star offensive tackle from Joe T. Robinson High School in Little Rock, AR, Harris has the potential to make an impact in Fayetteville early in the year, and comes to Arkansas at 6-foot-7 and 370 pounds where the freshman could see time at tackle. While he might not start immediately for the Razorbacks, Harris is undoubtedly a name to watch for this spring.
