ACC Football Commitment List: Atlantic Division, Jan. 2

Thursday, January 2, 2014 12:45am
By: Carlos Collazo

The past few weeks of recruiting in the Atlantic Division have been extremely active. Florida State continued to build on its high-caliber class with four new commits, N.C. State picked up its first five-star recruit in several years and Syracuse added two players to move ahead of Wake Forest and leave the Demon Deacons with the smallest class in the conference. For an update on the Coastal Division, check out our most recent post.

Boston College 
The Eagles have added two commitments to their ranks with two-star defensive end Austin Stevens and three/four-star running back Jonathan Hilliman. Stevens flipped his commitment from Kansas to Boston College and has the ability to play multiple positions. Hilliman flipped from Rutgers after taking a visit to Boston College and realizing it was the right fit for him.

Clemson
Clemson has no new commitments this week. The Tigers remain at 18 players in the 2014 class. 

Florida State
Jimbo Fisher had a phenomenal few weeks on the recruiting trail, landing four new commitments. Running back Dalvin Cook flipped from Florida, and Greensboro defensive end Lorenzo Featherston chose FSU, along with offensive linemen Brock Ruble and Kareem Are. With a flurry of commitments, the Seminoles are sitting pretty with a top-5 class and 28 players in their 2014 class.

N.C. State
The Wolfpack added its biggest commitment of the 2014 class in five-star defensive end Kentavius Street. Street is N.C. State's first five-star player since offensive tackle Robert Crisp in 2010, and he is the No. 2 player in the State according to Rivals. With the addition of Street, State has 25 committed players in its class.

Syracuse
The Orange picked up two recruits over the past few weeks. Chris Slayton is a three-star defensive end from Illinois, and Cordell Hudson is a three-star defensive back out of Florida and committed to Syracuse after visiting Rutgers. With these two commits, Scott Schafer now has 15 players in his 2014 class.

Wake Forest
The Demon Deacons have no new commitments. Dave Clawson is currently at 14 commitments in his 2014 class. Thomas Dillon talked about how he is sticking with Wake amidst a coaching change at the school.
