ACC Football Commitments List: Coastal Division, Dec. 19

Thursday, December 19, 2013 5:11pm
By: Carlos Collazo

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

Duke

There are no new commitments for the Blue Devils this week. David Cutcliffe and company remain at 16 recruits. The last player to commit to play for Duke this year was Quaven Ferguson, a two-star defensive tackle. 

Georgia Tech


There are no new commitments for the Yellow Jackets this week. They remain at 18.  

Miami


The Hurricanes had a lot of activity within the past few weeks. They added two commitments but also lost two, leaving their recruiting class at 27 members. Al Golden picked up Marques Gayot (three-star DB formerly committed to Louisville) and Kiy Hester (four-star receiver). Miami also lost commitments in three-star defensive tackle Dalvon Stuckey - who switched to Auburn in late November - and two-star defensive back/receiver Dennis Turner. Stuckey has signed a letter of intent to play for Florida State while Turner is interested in Florida Atlantic because they are recruiting him as a receiver--the Canes recruited him as a DB.

North Carolina


The Tar Heels haven't picked up any new commitments and remain at 21. 

Pittsburgh


The Panthers added two big recruits in four-star offensive lineman Alex Bookser and two-star linebacker James Folston Jr. Bookser is probably the bigger commit (both literally and figuratively) as the nation's No. 15 offensive lineman. Bookser will join Connor Hayes and Michael Grimm on the O-line in Pitt's 2014 class. Folston and Bookser become Pitt's No. 20 and 21 commits of the class.

Virginia 

While Virginia may have not had a big a week as Pitt or Miami, the Cavaliers did add one player. Offensive lineman Jacob Fieler committed to UVA after an abbreviated official visit and is going to enroll at the school next semester to participate in spring practices.  Virginia now has 14 commitments in their 2014 class.

Virginia Tech

The Hokies also took part in the busy week, adding two recruits of their own to bring their 2014 class to 25 players. The big name was QB Chris Durkin, who is a three-star Rivals recruit and four-star Scout recruit. Durkin de-committed from Michigan State and jumped aboard Virginia Tech's class after realizing playing time could come sooner with the Hokies. The second player is two-star running back, Tabyus Taylor, from Hopewell, Virginia.
