ACC Football: Coastal Division Recruiting Rankings
With National Signing Day having come and gone, how do the ACC Coastal teams classes stack up against each other?
National Signing Day came in with a Bang and left accordingly.
So with all the fanfare done and gone, how did each ACC Coastal team do?
Well, I am glad you asked. The following is a ranking of each team’s recruiting class. This is not a power ranking, that won’t come out until before the start of the season. It is just a ranking of how each school did.
Using ESPN’s player rankings as a guide, I assigned points per star. I also gave additional points for being in the Top 300 overall, top 10, 5, or first at each position. I then divided that final number by the number of recruits to get a final score.
So without further ado, your 2017 ACC Coastal Recruiting Rankings.
Team # 7
Team # 6
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
Team # 5
Team # 4
Virginia Tech Hokies
Team # 3
Duke Blue Devils
Team # 2
North Carolina Tar Heels
Team # 1
In case you were wondering how the whole ACC ranked out, here they are (Coastal teams are in bold):
1. Florida State Seminoles
2. Clemson Tigers
3. Miami Hurricanes
4. North Carolina Tar Heels
5. Louisville Cardinals
6. Duke Blue Devils
7. Virginia Tech Hokies
8. Pittsburgh Panthers
9. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
10. Syracuse Orange
11. Virginia Cavaliers
12. NC State Wolfpack
13. Wake Forest Demon Deacons
14. Boston College Eagles
Overall the ACC did very well. All 14 schools made ESPN’s top 75, eight their top 40, and five in their top 25. This is a great sign after the conference beat the SEC in the national title game.
If this trend continues hopefully one day people will be talking about the ACC not only as basketball’s best, but football’s and maybe even the NCAA’s overall best conference.
