Updated class rankings

6/28/2012

The ACC has remained status quo in the latest recruiting rankings, which were released today.

The conference still has a top-10 class, thanks to No. 9-ranked Florida State. The Noles are followed by No. 12 Clemson, No. 17 Virginia Tech, No. 18 Miami and No. 19 North Carolina. Here's a quick hit on each class:

No. 9 Florida State

Commits: 13

ESPN 150: 6

ESPN 300: 7

Top prospect: RB Ryan Green

Notable: Seven of the 13 commitments are projected defenders, but the offensive line has also been a priority.

No. 12 Clemson

Commits: 11

ESPN150: 4

ESPN 300: 4

Top prospect: DE Robert Nkemdiche

Notable: Clemson's focus has been depth on the defensive line, and Nkemdiche, the No. 1 player in the ESPN 150, has already drawn comparisons to former DE Da'Quan Bowers.

No. 17 Virginia Tech

Commits: 12

ESPN150: 1

ESPN 300: 4

Top prospect: OLB Holland Fisher

Notable: All but two of the Hokies' current commitments are from the state of Virginia, and the staff has focused on athletes and linebackers.

No. 18 Miami

Commits: 8

ESPN150: 4

ESPN 300: 5

Top prospect: QB Kevin Olsen

Notable: Family ties will be noted in this class, as Olsen is the younger brother of former Hurricanes and current Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen, and three-star athlete Ray Lewis III is following in the footsteps of his father, Baltimore Ravens star Ray Lewis.

No. 19 North Carolina

Commits: 10

ESPN150: 1

ESPN 300: 3

Top prospect: CB Brian Walker

Notable: First-year coach Larry Fedora is trying to build his program with in-state players, and so far it's working, as seven members of the class are from North Carolina.
