Saturday's Notre Dame-Florida State game was the prime-time attraction in college football this weekend, and plenty of recruits were on hand to see the Seminoles hold on for victory. Here's a look at some of the best social media posts from ACC recruiting this weekend.
Notre Dame at Florida State
The Seminoles played host to the best visitor list in college football over the weekend, and quite possibly the best of the season to date. Among the truly elite group of visitors were top cornerback prospects Kendall Sheffield and Tarvarus McFadden.
ESPN 300 No. 44 McFadden is set to announce between Florida State and Georgia on Oct. 31, and he tweeted that the Seminoles were showing the love Saturday.
ESPN 300 No. 158 Neville Gallimore tweeted shortly after landing in Tallahassee Saturday.

Gallimore made an official visit to Oklahoma Sept. 12 prior to this weekend at Florida State. Ohio State is also in line for an official visit Nov. 28, as is Florida and possibly Oregon.
Florida State four-star commitment Calvin Brewton was on his official visit this weekend and commented on the morning after the Seminoles' thrilling win. Brewton made an official visit to Notre Dame Oct. 4.

Another 2015 defensive back on an official visit to Florida State was versatile Davante Davis. The safety/nickelback summed up Tallahassee after the game. Along with the Seminoles, Alabama, Florida, Miami (Fla.) and possibly Auburn are seriously under consideration.

Victor tweeted about the atmosphere at Florida State and in Doak Campbell Stadium.

Mullen and Binjimen are also high on Ohio State and Alabama, among others, with there being a strong connection to Alabama on the Coconut Creek High coaching staff. Young was a heavy lean to Florida State during the spring and summer, but the Seminoles weren’t ready to accept a verbal commitment.
Even the class of 2018 was represented Saturday by First Coast budding star corner Tyreke Johnson, the younger brother of 2015 ESPN 300 quarterback and Seminoles commit De'Andre Johnson. Tyreke posted a twitter picture with 2016 fast-rising defensive back Saivion Smith and ESPN Junior 300 No. 28 and Alabama commit Demetris Robertson.
Syracuse at Wake Forest
Wake Forest hosted a number of highly ranked running backs and skill players Saturday. While the Demon Deacons lost convincingly to Syracuse, it was a showcase for the ability to come in and play right away for Wake Forest.
Both Washington and Neal are top targets of the Demon Deacons in 2016. Washington has more than 15 offers and lists Ohio State as one of his early favorites. Neal has been to games at Duke, Georgia Tech and Wake Forest this season.
The most important prospect in attendance didn’t tweet Saturday: ESPN 300 No. 149 Nyheim Hines. He made the short trip west to Winston-Salem with his family, including twin sister Nyah, who has a track offer from NC State. The Wolfpack are considered the favorites for the talented duo.
