ACC Football Commitments List: Coastal Division, Dec. 5

Thursday, December 5, 2013 1:37am
By: Carlos Collazo

Be sure to check out our last update of the Atlantic Division.

Duke
Duke hasn't picked up any new recruits since our last update. The Blue Devils currently have 16 commits in their 2014 class.

Georgia Tech
The Yellow Jackets are actually down a recruit since last time, with three-star running back Caleb Kinlaw committing to  Wisconsin. Now Paul Johnson is sitting with 18 recruits. Step Durham is the most highly touted of them all, being the only member of the 2014 class with a 4-star rating (from Rivals.com). 

Miami
The Hurricanes picked up a commitment from three-star wide receiver Tyre Brady in earlier in November. Brady is the 27th player in Al Golden's 2014 recruiting class and the third wide receiver. Apparently other schools are still trying to recruit Brady, but he said he is staying with the U: "I'm solid to UM. I'm going to take my official visit sometime in January. I'm trying to get C.J. Worton to flip to Miami with me, but he isn't giving me a lot to work with."

North Carolina 
The Tar Heels didn't pick up any new recruits. Larry Fedora is still sitting at 21 players, and offensive coordinator Blake Anderson is working on building relationships with some of them

Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh landed a big 19th recruit in 4-star running back Chris James. The 5-9, 210-pound back out of Niles, Ill., recently talked about his visit to Pitt. "All through my visit, the coaches were all talking to me about coming in and making an immediate impact," he said. "They said they want a home-run hitter like me and they want me to get ready so when I get there I can contribute. I just have to keep working my tail off and be ready."

Virginia 
The Cavaliers picked up their 13th commitment of the 2014 class in unranked defensive end Michael Biesemier.  

Virginia Tech
The Hokies also picked up an unranked player. They landed another in-state defensive player in Steve Sobczak (DT). Sobczak comes in at 6-2, 295 and is the 23rd player of Virginia Tech's 2014 class and the first unranked player of the class. Sobczak will join fellow Virginia Tech commit and high school teammate Vincent Mihota next year in Blacksburg.
