ACC recruiting scorecard

Signing day is approaching quickly. It’s a good time to check in and see where the teams in the ACC stand with their 2013 recruiting classes. (Pittsburgh and Syracuse don’t officially join until July).

BOSTON COLLEGE

Current commitments: 15

Spotlight: Quarterback Tim Boyle: The 6-foot-3, 205-pound pocket passer from Middletown, Conn., “may be flying under the radar a bit for programs that are looking for a pro-style passer,” according to ESPN.com’s scouting report. He also received offers from UConn, Pitt, Syracuse and Florida.

ESPN150 commitments: 0

ESPN300 commitments: 0

CLEMSON

Current commitments: 15

Spotlight: OLB Dorian O’Daniel: He is rated No. 6 at his position, and No. 75 overall in the ESPN150. According to ESPN.com’s scouting report, O’Daniel is “tall, well-built and has great playing strength, but lacks ideal bulk at this time.”

ESPN150 commitments: 4

ESPN300 commitments: 2

DUKE

Current commitments: 18

Spotlight: C Austin Davis: He is the highest-graded player in Duke’s 2013 class and is rated the No. 6 center in the country in his class. According to ESPN Recruiting’s analysis, “this guy is a tough, physical blocker with a nasty finishing attitude.”

ESPN150 commitments: 0

ESPN300 commitments: 0

FLORIDA STATE

Current commitments: 18

Spotlight: DE DeMarcus Walker: He is No. 4 at his position, and No. 35 overall in the ESPN150. His recent flip from Alabama to Florida State -- after the Crimson Tide just won a national title -- was a stunner, and he will enroll at FSU on Wednesday. Walker is now FSU's highest-rated recruit in the 2013 class.

ESPN150 commitments: 6

ESPN300 commitments: 5

GEORGIA TECH

Current commitments: 15

Spotlight: OT Shamire Devine: Paul Johnson’s offense line was a strength this year, and Devine can help that trend continue. The East Point, Ga., native is ranked No. 38 at his position.

ESPN150 commitments: 0

ESPN300 commitments: 0

MARYLAND

Current commitments: 19

Spotlight: QB Shane Cockerille: You can never have too many signal-callers in College Park, and this one could be a steal for the Terps. Cockerille is a dual-threat QB from the Gilman School in Baltimore, Md., and he is rated No. 16 at his position.

ESPN150 commitments: 0

ESPN300 commitments: 0

MIAMI

Current commitments: 13

Spotlight: QB Kevin Olsen: He is rated the No. 5 pocket passer in the country by ESPN Recruiting, and is the No. 65 overall prospect in the ESPN150. He has a rich family pedigree, but is looking to etch his own path.

NORTH CAROLINA

Current commitments: 19

Spotlight: CB Brian Walker: At 5-foot-11, 180 pounds, Walker is rated the No. 15 cornerback in the country, and he was also offered scholarships from Auburn and South Carolina, among others. Prior to his junior year, Walker recorded a 4.65-second 40-yard dash and 30.4-inch vertical.

NC STATE

Current commitments: 16

Spotlight: WR Kyrin Priester: He was at the Wolfpack’s upset win of then-No. 3 Florida State and committed the following day. Priester, a former Georgia commit, was close to decommitting after coach Tom O’Brien was fired.

ESPN150 commitments: 0

ESPN300 commitments: 1

VIRGINIA

Current commitments: 18

Spotlight: RB Taquan Mizzell: Nice job by UVa assistant Chip West on luring Mizzell to Charlottesville. He is the Hoos’ only ESPN150 commitment, and he is ranked No. 10 in the country at his position and No. 85 overall in the ESPN150. He is a strong all-purpose player and should be able to contribute immediately.

ESPN150 commitments: 1

ESPN300 commitments: 0

VIRGINIA TECH

Current commitments: 20

Spotlight: CB Kendall Fuller: He is the No. 4 cornerback in his class and No. 14 player overall in the ESPN150. All three of his brothers played at Virginia Tech, but Fuller was strongly considering Clemson, too. He is a versatile athlete who can make plays in both man and zone schemes.

WAKE FOREST

Current commitments: 19

Spotlight: OLB Lance Virgile: He is the Deacs’ highest-rated player, and he was also recruited by Louisville, West Virginia and NC State. Virgile is a four-star recruit from St. Thomas Aquinas in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. According to the ESPN scouting report, “Virgile is very effective defending against the run and pass and his playing strength and speed allow him to make plays all over the field.”
