Top prospects in the state of Alabama were spread across SEC campuses over the weekend getting a closer look at schools they are considering in their recruiting process. The best from the Yellowhammer State give their reactions from visits to Tennessee, Arkansas, Auburn, Mississippi State, and Ole Miss.

Beaman has continued stockpiling offers throughout the fall with Florida, Kentucky, and Arkansas being the latest. The rising three-star prospect made the trip up to Knoxville over the weekend to check out the Vols.

ON HIS TENNESSEE VISIT: "It went great. The fans and the energy was crazy! I was the first player who Coach (Josh) Heupel and (Rodney) Gardener shook hands and hugged when they came down the tunnel."

Flowers, a three-star quarterback out of Baker (Ala.), has already taken a visit to Alabama earlier this season. This past weekend he got another look at an SEC contender in Arkansas, where he had an extended stay.

ON HIS ARKANSAS VISIT: "I really liked that they made sure i was taken care of all three days I was in town. Basketball game on Friday, gameday visit on Saturday, and they had me up for another visit on Sunday. I like the offense and KJ (Jefferson) will be a senior next year. I graduate next December, so it’s a place a quarterback can come in and compete right away."

Lewis has been busy with visits so far this fall, having checked out Tennessee and Alabama. He made his second gameday visit to Auburn over the weekend to see the Tigers big win over Texas A&M.

ON WHAT STOOD OUT AT AUBURN: "Getting a chance to talk to Coach (Zac) Ethridge. Coach Cadillac (Williams) has brought excitement back to Auburn program. What I like about them is the opportunity to play early."

A return trip to Auburn highlighted Coleman's weekend as the Tigers remain one of the standout schools in his recruiting process. Seeing the atmosphere surrounding a big Auburn win was special for the three-star prospect.

ON HIS AUBURN VISIT: "I really liked that Coach (Carnell) Williams got his first win as interim head coach at home in front of the ones that supports him the most. What an amazing feeling it must have been for him, the entire coaching staff, players and the Auburn community. That was a huge win for them and it showed the program can move and is moving in the right direction and I love the direction the program is going. I really enjoyed my time there and the fan base is just amazing."

Harris is definitely no stranger to attending a game at Auburn. This past weekend marked the third Tigers' game the three-star has attended. He was also on The Plains for the Penn State and Missouri games.

ON HIS AUBURN VISIT: "The crowd was insane. The atmosphere was crazy."

Kirkpatrick already has an offer from South Carolina on his resume, but plenty of other SEC schools are showing interest as well. The three-star was at Mississippi State over the weekend to check out the Bulldogs.

ON HIS MISS. STATE TRIP: "One thing that stood out about Mississippi State is the cowbells and and the atmosphere."

Grady is already one of the top-rated prospects in the nation in the 2025 class. He was at Ole Miss over the weekend, who just extended an offer to the four-star prospect earlier this month.

ON HIS OLE MISS TRIP: "What stood out to me the most was the atmosphere and I liked the fans were very hype."

Harper checked out Kentucky, Auburn, and Alabama earlier this fall. The three-star took the trip to Oxford over the weekend to get a closer look at the Rebels.

ON HIS OLE MISS VISIT: "The atmosphere was amazing. I could tell that the fans really love Ole Miss. It was a great experience. I can tell that they run a great program down there in Hotty Toddy."
