Not a huge recruiting guy but I follow it enough to know what’s going on.
Good class. May have finished 8th in the ACC but there isn’t much difference between the classes 3-10 after FSU and Clemson
Sbnation report link – we will come back to that in a second
Class finished 43 in rivals and when consider the under the radar type linemen we signed (7 of them) it helps put some perspective on the rest of the class. It’s pretty good.
good read about how coaches evaluate offensive linemen http://www.sbnation.com/college-football-recruiting/2016/2/16/11016644/kirby-smart-georgia-offensive-line-recruiting-uga-evaluate
Guys committed early and probably kept them from getting ranked higher but Gee and Sculthorpe have the makeup of excellent linemen . Gees dad is an alum an NFL vet.
Couple of ones that stung are Dexter and Dorn
Can’t blame a guy for picking Clemson right now and they used the hometown hero against us. He didn’t want that pressure
Dorn on the other hand had a ton of offers from the big boys and was a hard State lean (bro on basketball team) but basically change his mind on his visit here for the UNC game in the first quarter. Stings to lose a guy if his caliber to those chumps enough let alone because of that ass whipping in the first quarter
Sbnation article. Outlined how the big dogs in the leagues are out recruiting the rest of the conferences http://www.sbnation.com/college-football-recruiting/2016/2/10/10939292/signing-day-2016-ncaa-recruiting-big-ten-sec-acc
Ohio St and mich combined to out recruit the rest of the big 10west
Clemson and FSU same thing vs the rest of the acc
Huge disparity and makes it hard to win. Have to win with scheme evaluations and coaching .
ACC ranked last of the Power 5 in blue chip recruits. 4 and 5 stars.
Almost scored 100
Cat with 38.
Mav played well
Caleb played well.
Good movement on offense
Still wake forest, 24 road ACC loses
