Grading the recruiting classes: ACC

With 16 ESPN 300 commits, FSU topped not only the ACC but also the country. Here's how the rest of the conference graded out after signing day.

Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich has approached coach Bobby Petrino about a contract extension. During a news conference to announce plans to expand Papa John's Cardinal Stadium to 65,000 seats, Jurich said he has been impressed with what Petrino has done in two years back with the Cards. Petrino has gone 17-9 over the last two seasons in his second stint with the team.

Luginbill: 2016's high-risk/high-reward recruits

Some recruits' talent comes with a certain amount of risk. That doesn't mean the rewards won't be there for Florida State's Malik Henry, Louisville's Jawon Pass and these prospects.

Top 5 performers at Senior Bowl practices: WR Braxton Miller (Ohio State), QB Carson Wentz (North Dakota State), DT Sheldon Rankins (Louisville), LB Reggie Ragland (Alabama), CB Jalen Mills (LSU). This group checked off plenty of boxes on the scouting report and made some money in Mobile.

Louisville DT Sheldon Rankins (6-foot-2, 304 pounds) tore up one-on-one pass rush drills at Senior Bowl practice today. He brings a quick first step off the ball, counter moves and straight power at the point of attack. Rankins is a true first-round talent. Beast.

Ranking the ACC conference schedules

NC State appears to have the roughest slate to navigate in the conference, while Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech couldn't ask for much better.

Cards host Florida State on Sept. 17

The ACC has released its 2016 schedule. In addition to a home date with FSU, two other games involving Louisville could impact the College Football Playoff:

  • Saturday, Oct. 1 at Clemson
  • Thurs. or Sat., Nov. 17/19 at Houston

Jared Shanker ESPN Staff Writer 

Better keep an eye on the ACC during October from start to finish. Clemson at Florida State on Oct. 29 headlines the league slate, but the month begins with Coastal champ North Carolina visiting FSU and Clemson hosting up-and-comer Louisville. The hype for that Oct. 29 game will be muted if either trips up four weeks earlier.

Jackson is the leader Louisville needs

By the end of last season we finally got a taste for what Lamar Jackson is capable of. Jackson showed some serious star power on his feet and with his arm in 2015. Rising stars (Insider)

Fields found home with Cardinals

Devonte Fields' unorthodox path from TCU to a juco to Louisville led to an incredible 2015. While his skills as an edge-rusher are highly valued in the NFL, Fields decided to return for a final year to try for an ACC title one last time. Top players returning in 2016 (Insider)
