A quick look at the Top 5 classes in the ACC.

Top Five in the ACC
Team Comment
Virginia This just might be the Cavaliers' best class ever, and a memory that'll live forever in Virginia fans' minds is the hour of 3 p.m. ET on Monday before Signing Day when Kai Parham, Ahmad Brooks and Michael Johnson all committed.
FSU As is their custom, the Seminoles moved up quickly the last couple of days before Signing Day to finish in the national Top 10.
Clemson The Tigers took a back seat to all the hoopla surrounding rival South Carolina's class, but they've quietly put together an impressive group of signees.
North Carolina State DB A.J. Davis is the big name, but N.C. State has done an excellent job in-state and in Florida and Georgia to bring in a very respectable class.
Maryland The Terrapins kept the majority of the top in-state prospects this year and also did a good job in Florida and Georgia. However, a big surprise came when they landed potential All-American DB JoJo Walker from Texas.
