Spring practice is well underway for each SEC school. And each school has at least had their first scrimmage.

Each year, certain players catch the attention of media and fans alike based either on practice film that is released to the public, or by the media that are able to attend and report what they saw.

Fans are clamoring for any insight into each team with the season being months away in the middle of “talking season,” as former Florida Gators coach Steve Spurrier coined it.

Here is my list of top players to watch for in 2024 that are emerging in spring practice

OL, James Brockermeyer (Alabama)

Brockermeyer is going into his fourth season in Tuscaloosa and has been a reserve for the first three. However, under new head coach Kalen DeBoer Brockermeyer has reportedly made great strides in the spring for the Tide. And despite transfer center Parker Brailsford following DeBoer over from Washington, Brockermeyer has more than held serve and could be a strong candidate for starting center in 2024 for the Crimson Tide.

WR, Kobe Prentice (Alabama)

According to an article by www.si.com ‘s Mathey Gibson, Prentice is thriving in the Crimson Tide’s new offensive scheme under head coach, Kalen Deboer..

In his article, Gibson shares that wide receivers coach, Jamarcus Shepard has been making tremendous progress. Shepard stated of Prentice, “I would tell y’all that young man has led the room.”

QB, Ty Simpson (Alabama)

While Jalen Milroe projects to undoubtedly begin the season as the starting quarterback for the Crimson Tide, Simpson has made significant strides so far in his third year on campus.

During Alabama’s second scrimmage of the season, Simpson threw two touchdown passes; one to Kobe Prentice who was mentioned earlier in the article.
