|ESPN.com: ACC||[Print without images]|
Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich
The watch is over. The ESPNU 150 for the Class of 2010 has been revealed, and half of the teams in the ACC -- Clemson, Miami, NC State, Florida State, UNC and Duke (yes, Duke) -- will be future homes to some of them.
Duke is one of the programs that has made significant strides in its recruiting in a short period of time. Take for example the Blue Devils' latest commit, Laken Tomlinson, who turned down Ohio State for Duke. He had 24 scholarship offers. They don't have to be in the ESPNU 150 list to make a difference. But hey, the Blue Devils snagged one of them, too.
FSU is leading the way with three ESPNU 150 commits so far, and it's no surprise considering the bulk of the talent is in their backyard.
The state of Florida was the biggest producer of this talent, and the SEC currently leads all conferences with the most ESPNU 150 commits. (Yes, there is some correlation there. You get the best players, you tend to win more games.) J.C. Shurburtt broke this all down for you in his Coast-to-Coast notes.
Here's how the ACC has fared so far with ESPNU 150 commits:
Clemson -- No. 27 Martavis Bryant, WR (T.L. Hanna HS S.C.); No. 122 Garry Peters, ATH, (Heritage HS Ga.)
Miami -- No. 49, Todd Chandler, DT (Miami Northwestern); No. 101, Louis Nix, DT, (Raines HS Fla.)
NC State -- No. 60 Robert Crisp, OT, (Cedar Ridge HS N.C.)
FSU -- No. 88, Corey Miller, DE, (James Byrnes HS S.C.); No. 110, Telvin Smith, OLB, (Lowndes HS Ga.); No. 135, Darious Cummings, DT, (Astronaut HS, Fla.)
UNC -- No. 118, James Hurst, OT, (Plainfield HS Ind.)
Duke -- No. 123, Aramide Olaniyan, OLB, (Woodberry Forest School, Va.)
