ACC Football Commitment List: Atlantic Division, Jan. 30

Thursday, January 30, 2014 8:04am
By: Carlos Collazo

Ever since the dead period came to a close, the recruiting scene has been crazy for almost all of the schools in the conference. With signing day coming up on Feb. 5, the Atlantic Division is sure to be shaken up at least once more before the 2014 commitment lists are set in stone. This time though, each team in the Atlantic Division saw some activity in their recruiting classes.

For an update on the Coastal Division, check out last week's post.

Boston College
The Eagles picked up two commitments since we last checked in, with defensive tackle Noa Merritt and defensive back Tre Tarpley. Both are seen as two-star players by Rivals.com and unranked by Scout.com. Last season for his New Jersey high school, Merritt had 84 tackles, 20 tackles for loss and 17 sacks. With these two additions, Boston College now has 27 commitments in its 2014 recruiting class. 

Clemson
While the Tigers only landed one new commitment, it was a big one. Four-star wide receiver Trevion Thompson, from Durham, N.C., decided to commit to Clemson over offers from many other schools including Alabama, Florida, Notre Dame, Ohio State, South Carolina and West Virginia. With Thompson's decision, the Tigers move to 19 commitments in the 2014 class.

Florida State
The Seminoles actually lost a commitment this week in three-star wide receiver C.J. Worton. Worton hasn't yet committed to another school, but Miami is going after him hard. Worton lists Miami, Florida, West Virginia and Oregon as his top choices. Florida State is now at 28 commitments in the 2014 class. 

N.C. State
N.C. State was extremely active over the past couple weeks, landing four commitments to take the 2014 class to 30 players. The Wolfpack now has three-star defensive back Shawn Boone, three-star offensive lineman Will Richardson, three/four-star defensive back Troy Vincent and three-star defensive back Elliot Davis.

Syracuse
While Syracuse wasn't as busy as N.C. State, the Orange did pick up a commitment of their own. Three-star defensive back Juwan Dowels becomes the fourth DB of Syracuse's 2014 class and the 17th player of the class.

Wake Forest
During an extremely active few weeks, Dave Clawson and Wake Forest take home the award for getting the most done, picking up eight new commitments. That's insane. After filling out his coaching staff, Clawson clearly began putting a priority on filling out his 2014 class, and with 22 total recruits, it might be paying off.
