Grading ACC teams on signing day
By Andrea Adelson
The final ESPN RecruitingNation class rankings and grades have been handed out.
So how did the ACC do?
First, the class rankings . Florida State made it into the top 10 after a big Wednesday, picking up three ESPN 150 players. The Noles ranked No. 9. Clemson also moved up two spots after inking ESPN 150 players Mackensie Alexander and Tyrone Crowder on signing day to finish at No. 13.
Here are the other ranked schools in the top 40:
No. 19 Virginia Tech
No. 20 North Carolina
No. 21 Miami
N0. 34 Virginia
Very good to see five ACC teams finish in the top 25. In fact, the ACC ranked behind only the SEC (10) with the number of teams in the top 25. The Big Ten (four), Pac-12 (three) and Big 12 (two) were next.
As for the class grades, our experts handed out two A's: Florida State got one; Clemson got an A-minus. Eight schools ended up with either C-plus, C or C-minus grades.
