ACC: Tony Logan
Spotlight: Wide receivers.
2011 summary: This was a group that had too many drops to count, and two suspended players in Ronnie Tyler and Quintin McCree. While switching between quarterbacks Danny O'Brien and C.J. Brown, Maryland had one of the worst passing offenses in the ACC. Kevin Dorsey was excellent through the first quarter of the season, but struggled, was injured, and his production dropped off after missing two games. He led the team with 573 yards and three touchdowns on 45 catches. Kerry Boykins had 37 catches for 430 yards.
The skinny: Hello, Stefon Diggs. This is the anticipated position for Maryland’s top recruit, who will join the team this summer. Tony Logan has graduated and Adrian Coxson, a redshirt freshman, has transferred to Stony Brook. Outside of Dorsey and Boykins, the rest of the receiving corps owns a combined 13 receptions for 102 yards. The Terps still have Marcus Leak, who caught eight passes for 61 yards and a score against Florida State, but he was then held without a catch against BC and didn’t play in the final four games. Devin Burns, a sophomore, is a former quarterback who has one catch for 17 yards. Tyrek Cheeseboro, who suffered a torn ACL on special teams last season, also returns. Regardless of who Maryland's quarterback is for 2012, the Terps will need their receivers to help him out more.

1. Virginia Tech: With Jarrett Boykin and Coale returning, the Hokies’ passing game has a chance to flourish this fall. Boykin, Coale and Dyrell Roberts were the team’s top three receivers last year for the second straight season, combining for 113 catches, 1,882 yards and 11 touchdowns. Add to that Marcus Davis, D.J. Coles, E.L. Smiling -- it’s a bottomless cup of depth and talent.
2. Duke: Conner Vernon has 128 catches in his first two collegiate seasons and Donovan Varner ranked fourth in the ACC in pass receptions (60) and seventh in yardage (736). Their combined 274 receptions are the most of any active duo in the ACC. They are the top two returning leaders in catches per game, and Vernon is the ACC’s returning leader in receiving yards per game. The Blue Devils also have sophomore Brandon Braxton (14 catches), who could make a name for himself as the third option this year.
3. Florida State: Every Seminole who caught a pass last season returns. Bert Reed, Taiwan Easterling and Rodney Smith return with a combined 50 career starts. Reed ranks second among all returning ACC receivers with 141 career receptions. Willie Haulstead had 38 catches last season, Smith had 31, and there’s plenty of rising talent like Christian Green.
4. North Carolina: Like Florida State, North Carolina returns all of its receivers, including two who redshirted last season. Dwight Jones, who had 946 yards and 62 receptions, leads the group, but Erik Highsmith (25 catches, 348 yards and three touchdowns) must be accounted for as well. Defenses also can’t forget about Jheranie Boyd, who is a deep threat.
5. Miami: The Canes will miss the production of Leonard Hankerson, but they don’t have to if one or two of the other players show more consistency. Travis Benjamin has big-play capabilities and averaged 17.3 yards on his 43 catches last season. There is no shortage of other options with LaRon Byrd, Aldarius Johnson, Tommy Streeter, Allen Hurns and Kendal Thompkins. Which one will rise to the occasion?
6. Clemson: It was the DeAndre Hopkins show last season, and he should again highlight the Tigers’ passing game. As a true freshman, Hopkins had 52 catches, the most by a first-year player in school history. Jaron Brown returns with 10 career starts, and the Tigers also have Marquan Jones (21 catches) and Bryce McNeal (19).
7. Maryland: The Terps have to replace their top two receivers from a year ago in Torrey Smith and Adrian Cannon, and no clear frontrunners emerged this spring. Quintin McCree leads all returners with 16 catches, followed by Kevin Dorsey (15), Ronnie Tyler (13), Kerry Boykins (10), and Tony Logan.
8. Boston College: True freshman Bobby Swigert led the Eagles last year with 39 catches and four touchdowns in five starts. The Eagles are hoping to get a significant boost from the return of Colin Larmond Jr., who missed all of last season with a knee injury, but the young group should be better regardless because of the experience gained last season.
9. Virginia: The Cavaliers will miss Dontrelle Inman, who averaged 16 yards per catch on 51 receptions, but returning starter Kris Burd finished fifth in the ACC last season in pass receptions (58). The group will also get a boost from the return of Tim Smith, who missed almost all of last season with an injury, and Matt Snyder (30 catches) and Ray Keys (three catches).
10. NC State: NC State has to replace its top two receivers from a year ago, and T.J. Graham is the team’s leading returning receiver with 25 catches. Steven Howard, Jay Smith and Quintin Payton all have experience, and redshirt freshman Bryan Underwood, Tobias Palmer and Everett Proctor have also been competing for playing time.
11. Wake Forest: Chris Givens (35 catches, 13.7 average), Michael Campanaro (10 catches) and Danny Dembry are the lead candidates to start, but the Deacs are missing a spark like Kenny Moore (2007) and D.J. Boldin (2008) provided. There were too many dropped passes in the spring game, so this group has some work to do in summer camp.
12. Georgia Tech: Yes, Georgia Tech throws the ball, just not often enough or efficiently enough to be anywhere but last place on this list. Stephen Hill led the Jackets last year with 15 catches for 291 yards and three touchdowns. He should show progress this fall now that there’s no pressure on him to be the next Demaryius Thomas. If he doesn’t show more consistency, the Jackets could turn to Daniel McKayhan, Tyler Melton or Jeremy Moore.
Using ESPN.com’s recruiting database, I took a look back at my 2010 all-conference team to see how each player fared in his respective recruiting class. Some players have flourished at other positions. Only five of the players were ranked among the ESPNU 150, and five were either unranked or joined the team as a walk-on.
Here’s a look back at the recruiting rankings for the ACC’s top players in 2010:
QB: Tyrod Taylor, Virginia Tech:No. 16 player in ESPNU 150, No. 3 overall quarterback in the 2007 class

RB: Anthony Allen, Georgia Tech: No. 73 running back in Louisville’s class of 2007
WR Leonard Hankerson, Miami: No. 61 wide receiver in 2007 class
WR Torrey Smith, Maryland: No. 54 wide receiver in 2007 class
TE George Bryan, NC State: No. 16 tight end, class of 2007

PR: Tony Logan, Maryland: No. 21 quarterback in 2007 class
KR: David Wilson, Virginia Tech: No. 40 in ESPNU 150 Class of 2009, No. 5 running back
Honestly, the biggest internal debate was over the kicker, a battle between Virginia Tech’s Chris Hazley and Duke’s Will Snyderwine. The coaches voted Snyderwine an All-America selection, and that was hard to ignore, as was the fact that he is the master of the onside kick, and hit four that Duke retained. Duke isn’t the most athletic team, but because of Snyderwine’s ability to put the ball in a 3-yard square, the Blue Devils were right there with everyone else in kickoff coverage (No. 3 behind division champs Florida State and Virginia Tech). The frustrating part of compiling this team is that there is always a deserving player left off -- always. There’s no question, though, that everyone on this year’s ESPN.com All-ACC team deserves it.

Maryland will be wearing specially-designed uniforms as part of their partnership with the Wounded Warrior Project, a non-profit organization that provides programs and services for injured services members and their families. Three servicemen wounded in action will be honored Saturday night.
One aspect of this game that might be overshadowed is the impact of special teams, especially in the return game. Maryland's Tony Logan leads the ACC in punt returns, Torrey Smith is dangerous on kickoff returns, and FSU's Greg Reid is an electric returner.
Tony Logan helped out with a nice punt return that landed the Terps at midfield en route to their scoring drive. O'Brien converted a fourth-and-7 and a fouth-and-1 on that drive. Maryland can win this game if O'Brien continues to manage the offense like this.
- Duke place-kicker Will Snyderwine, a former walk-on, has now connected on 87.5 percent (28-of-32) of his career attempts to rank first in Duke history while standing fourth among active NCAA kickers. He has made all 41 of his career PAT attempts, marking the sixth-longest streak in school history. Through six games, Snyderwine ranks first in the ACC in field goal percentage (.917), second in field goals per game (1.83) and third in overall points per game (8.3).
- Only Duke, North Carolina and Florida State have red zone conversion percentages of over 90 percent. The Blue Devils and Tar Heels are the only schools who have failed to score less than three times inside the 20-yard line.
- Virginia turned the ball over five times against North Carolina -- all via interceptions. The last time UVa was intercepted five times in a game was in 1981 against then-No. 9 UNC -- the last time the Tar Heels won in Charlottesville prior to Saturday. The Cavaliers have five interceptions in the red zone this year.
- Fourteen different players have scored touchdowns for the Wolfpack this season, the third-highest in the nation. Four players have scored four times each, while nine have scored two or more touchdowns. Wide receivers (6), halfbacks (3), fullbacks (1), tight ends (1), defensive backs (2) and a quarterback (1) have been responsible for the Wolfpack’s 31 touchdowns this season. In 25 of the 57 years since the ACC was formed, NC State has scored less touchdowns for the season than the Pack has already scored in seven games in 2010. Here’s a look at the national leaders in number of players scoring touchdowns: 1. Stanford (16), 2. Oregon (15) 3. NC State (14), Boise State (14), Fresno State, (14), Utah (14).
- Only 12 Wake Forest players have ever had a run of 76 or more yards from scrimmage during their careers, and four are currently on the roster. Josh Adams ran 83 yards for a touchdown against Florida State in 2007, Brandon Pendergrass had a 76-yard score against Boston College in 2009, Devon Brown went 85 yards for a touchdown against Presbyterian in the 2010 season-opener, and Josh Harris put his name in the record book with an 87-yard touchdown run against Virginia Tech on Oct. 16.
- Carolina is outscoring its opponents 83-32 in the second half this season. The Tar Heels have outscored their opponents in four of six games, including second-half shutouts vs. LSU (14-0) and Virginia (17-0). Carolina allowed just three second-half points to both Rutgers and ECU.
- Maryland's Tony Logan is one of only five FBS players in the past eight years to return two punts of at least 80 yards for touchdowns in the same season. He is joined by Quinton Jones of Boise State (2005), DeSean Jackson of Cal (2006), Javier Arenas of Alabama (2008) and LaVon Brazill of Ohio (2009). In ACC history there have been only two occurrences of back-to-back games with 80-plus yard punt returns for touchdowns. Logan did it this season (85 yards vs. FIU, 9/25; 84 yards vs. Duke, 10/2) and Willie Reid of Florida State was the first league player to perform the feat (83 vs. Virginia Tech in the ACC championship game on 12/3/05; 87 vs. Penn State in the Orange Bowl on 1/3/06).
- Georgia Tech has played Clemson more frequently than any other opponent except Georgia (104 meetings), Auburn (92) and Duke (77). The past three meetings have been decided by a combined 12 points In his three seasons at Georgia Tech, Paul Johnson has compiled a record of 11-2 in games decided by five points or less.
- One of the most unusual statistical occurrences in Clemson history took place during Clemson’s 33-12 victory over Georgia Tech in 1987 at Clemson. Clemson entered the game with a streak of 999 consecutive combined punt returns and kickoff returns without a touchdown dating to 1970. Then, on the 1000th return, Donnell Woolford raced 78 yards with a punt return for a touchdown. Then, later in the game, Joe Henderson returned a kickoff return 95 yards for a touchdown. It is one of just two games in Clemson history that the Tigers have returned a punt return for a touchdown and a kickoff return for a touchdown . The other took place in 2009 when Clemson defeated Middle Tennessee State.
- Virginia Tech has scored more than 40 or more points in three straight games for the first time since 2005.
- Miami senior running back Damien Berry enters the game against UNC having recorded three straight 100-yard rushing games after tallying 111 yards on 25 carries against Duke. Berry is one of just five players in school history to record three straight 100-yard rushing games, joining Willis McGahee, Edgerrin James, Clinton Portis and Frank Gore as the only five players to accomplish the feat at Miami. Not bad company.
- The ACC has already tied a season record with 15 scoring plays each of 80 or more yards. The ACC has recorded the 15 plays this year in just 59 games. It took 104 games to set the record last year.
- BC junior tight end Lars Anderson has a popular name in the Boston area. The Boston Red Sox have a first baseman named Lars Anderson who played 12 games this year. He made his MLB debut on Sept. 6. There is also a Larz Anderson Park four miles away in Brookline. BC’s national champion men’s ice hockey team occasionally practices outside at the rink located at the park. The Eagles’ Anderson has caught six passes for 55 yards this year.
Wake Forest was two points away from making me look smart. Miami was light years. So it goes. After a 4-2 record last week, my overall record stands at 39-12. That’s a 76.4 winning percentage. Forget that. I’m aiming for Joe Paterno’s age (83).
Here’s to a better week:
Virginia Tech 38, Wake Forest 17: The Deacs have had trouble with mobile quarterbacks, and won’t be able to contain Tyrod Taylor or the Hokies’ running game. Wake’s rushing defense is No. 101 in the country, allowing just under 200 yards per game, and the Hokies are averaging 211 on the ground.
Florida State 31, Boston College 14: Once again, BC’s defense will make a play that gives the offense a short field, but the Eagles will again come up short under center. Chase Rettig has been able to practice this week, but the Seminoles, who lead the nation in sacks for the third straight weeks, will have the edge up front and pressure the rookie.
Clemson 38, Maryland 10: Tigers’ running back Andre Ellington will have a big day, and the Clemson defense will expose Maryland’s issues at quarterback. The Tigers will have to contain Tony Logan on punt returns -- he’s had two for more than 80 yards for touchdowns in the past two games -- and force the Terps into uncharacteristic turnovers.
NC State 35, East Carolina 28: It should have the feeling of a rivalry game and could turn into a shootout, but NC State easily has the better defense. Both teams rank among the top 13 in the nation in scoring offense, but the Pirates are ranked 114th in total defense, allowing 457 yards per game.
UNC 17, Virginia 14: Running back Johnny White will be the difference, again helping out in the passing game, and UNC will break its streak of 14 straight losses in Charlottesville. The Tar Heels’ defense is coming together and will have the advantage up front as Virginia is tweaking its rotation on the offensive line.
Georgia Tech 35, Middle Tennessee 14: Middle Tennessee is 2-3 in the Sun Belt and has one of the worst rushing defenses in the country. That’s one weakness you can’t afford against Paul Johnson’s spread option offense, which has the No. 3 rushing offense in the country at 328 yards per game.
Miami 38, Duke 27: Consider this a trap game for the Canes, as Duke has had a bye week to heal and prepare and will have home-field advantage. The Blue Devils aren’t good enough defensively, though, to stop Miami’s speed or its explosive kicking game. The Canes will pull away late.
Repeat: Maryland has won four games. That's twice as many as it did last year and two wins shy of bowl eligibility. Rejoice, Maryland fans, rejoice. Just don't get too carried away -- Maryland didn't exactly dominate the Blue Devils. Instead, the Terps had to climb out of a 9-0 hole and were outgained in total yards (399-294). Still, it's progress, and Maryland is heading in the right direction. Tony Logan continues to impress in the return game and Maryland is even better when everything is clicking for Danny O'Brien and Torrey Smith is healthy. The competition is only going to get tougher with a road trip to Clemson looming, but if there's one team in the ACC Maryland has figured out how to beat (somehow), it's Clemson.
- NC State linebacker Nate Irving gives his take on his performance against Georgia Tech in the school newspaper, Technician.
- Georgia Tech receiver Tyler Melton has become more comfortable with his role in the offense.
- BC defensive end Alex Albright is praying he has no more injuries.
- It's time for UNC coach Butch Davis to be fired or leave writes Caulton Tudor.
- Defensive tackle Marvin Austin hasn't given up on playing this year.
- NC State will be happy to have offensive coordinator Dana Bible back on the sidelines this time around against the Hokies.
- Virginia Tech defensive end Chris Drager is a "tough nut." He's from the 'Burgh, what do yins expect?
- FSU defensive end Brandon Jenkins has worked his way into the spotlight.
- Clemson quarterback Kyle Parker is already a millionaire. No wonder he's not stressing this year.
- Maryland's Tony Logan is trying to follow in his good friend Kyle Wilson's footsteps.
- Wake Forest will go with Ted Stachitas at quarterback against Georgia Tech.
- David Glenn talked with Duke coach David Cutcliffe.
- Miami has special packages prepared for Seantrel Henderson against Clemson.
- Virginia defensive backs Ras-I Dowling and Rodney McLeod both "look fine" and will play against FSU.

The weekly injury reports have all come in (some come in much later than others, which is why I wait until Friday mornings to do this). If you don't see 'em, they weren't sent. Maryland will miss Bruce Campbell again, Duke has a handful of key players who could miss the game at Kansas, including Vince Oghobaasse, Virginia is likely to be without Vic Hall, and Boston College will be without defensive tackle Damik Scafe. Not good news for any of those teams. It looks like UNC might -- might -- get Jonathan Cooper back on the offensive line. That would be a huge help.
