Here's a team-by-team breakdown of the ACC's 2010 recruiting classes.
Bobby Bowden must have given some words of wisdom on how to close to Jimbo Fisher on the way out. The new head coach signed a top-10 class and enjoyed a great finish on signing day. The Seminoles added to their impressive front-seven class which features five-star inside linebacker Jeff Luc (Port St. Lucie, Fla./Treasure Coast) by signing No. 2 OLB Christian Jones (Oviedo, Fla./Lake Howell) on the signing day. FSU's offense also got a boost as versatile athlete Christian Green (Tampa, Fla./Tamp Catholic), who projects at wide receiver, announced for the 'Noles. The conference's top class also features playmaking five-star corner Lamarcus Joyner (Miami/Saint Thomas Aquinas) who could also make an impact on offense and special teams.
Signing Day featured some misses for Miami; the Hurricanes were unable to make a surge forward, but this class is still very deep and filled with high value four-stars. The offensive backfield got an infusion of young talent with Storm Johnson (Loganville, Ga.) and Eduardo Clements (Miami/Booker T. Washington), the No. 3 and 14 ranked running backs coming on board. Defensively, landing DE David Perry (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./University School of Nova Southeastern) was key. He has great upside physically and ability. Also, don't be surprised if No. 3 ILB Kevin Nelson (Gainesville, Fla.) sees the field early for a linebacker unit that has not been consistent.
