We've collected today's top ACC-related recruiting tweets from Twitter. They're listed below and divided up by school.<br>

</br>


<h1>Clemson</h1>


<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Where does <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Clemson&amp;src=hash">#Clemson</a> stand after being first offer to Georgia RB Mikell Lands-Davis <a href="https://twitter.com/ayy_kell">@ayy_kell</a>? <a href="http://t.co/08RwTobfOp">http://t.co/08RwTobfOp</a> via <a href="https://twitter.com/TIinClemson">@TIinClemson</a></p>&mdash; Paul Strelow (@PaulStrelowTI) <a href="https://twitter.com/PaulStrelowTI/statuses/415113378588151808">December 23, 2013</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>


Lands-Davis has strong interest in UGA, which should come as no surprise - he hails from Douglassville, Ga. However, it will be interesting to see how things shift around now that the four-star RB (2015) has an offer from the Tigers.


<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Brad Brownell, Chris Mack, James Johnson, Butler assistant Chris Holtmann and Rice assistant Adam Gierlach are at the King of the Bluegrass.</p>&mdash; Evan Daniels (@EvanDaniels) <a href="https://twitter.com/EvanDaniels/statuses/414939830875729920">December 23, 2013</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>


It looks like with the Tigers on Christmas vacation - they don’t play a game until December 30 - that Brownell is hitting the recruiting trail along with VT’s Johnson (Hokies are off until December 28, by the way)


<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Official visits taking shape for <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Clemson&amp;src=hash">#Clemson</a> Rivals250 DE target Andrew Williams <a href="https://twitter.com/DrewWill_79">@DrewWill_79</a> <a href="http://t.co/pKiqbB1jer">http://t.co/pKiqbB1jer</a></p>&mdash; Paul Strelow (@PaulStrelowTI) <a href="https://twitter.com/PaulStrelowTI/statuses/415177529310191616">December 23, 2013</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>


Williams - the No. 12 defensive end in the nation, according to 247Sports.com - is still uncommitted, and very fond of the Tigers. His top three consists of Clemson, Auburn and Ole Miss. It looks as though he’ll be taking some visits in the near future, too.


<h1>Duke</h1>


<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Alex Gourley (2016 C/N): Lake Norman News (Charlotte Observer) All-Lake Norman Team. <a href="https://twitter.com/jedwardsjr23">@jedwardsjr23</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/langstonwertzjr">@langstonwertzjr</a> <a href="http://t.co/BXiNdW2v3B">pic.twitter.com/BXiNdW2v3B</a></p>&mdash; Alex Gourley (@quicksnapper77) <a href="https://twitter.com/quicksnapper77/statuses/415145437784309761">December 23, 2013</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>


Gourley is a center in the 2016 recruiting class; he plays his prep ball for Statesville (N.C.) North Iredell. According to his 247Sports.com prospect page, he has interest from Clemson, Duke and NC State. No scholarship offers so far, though.</br>

<h1>Florida State</h1>

</br>


<h1>Georgia Tech</h1>


<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>In case it wasn&#39;t clear, GT will only sign 1 QB this year: <a href="http://t.co/hhFfM3PVer">http://t.co/hhFfM3PVer</a></p>&mdash; Michael Carvell (@RecruitingAJC) <a href="https://twitter.com/RecruitingAJC/statuses/415127217631285248">December 23, 2013</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>


That would be Matthew Jordan, who has already signed financial aid papers.</br>

</br>


<h1>Louisville</h1>

<h1>Miami</h1>


<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>4-star DE Chad Thomas showed up at Dade All-Star practice sporting Bama shorts. May get an official visit. <a href="http://t.co/008WGhPukt">http://t.co/008WGhPukt</a></p>&mdash; Luke Stampini (@LukeStampini) <a href="https://twitter.com/LukeStampini/statuses/415142074762428416">December 23, 2013</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>


Well, uh, ok. Thomas committed to the Hurricanes back in July. The four-star defensive end wearing Alabama shorts means, basically, zilch. However, if he is actually considering on taking a trip down to Tuscaloosa, well, then that’s a different story.


<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>What will be more impressive for Chad Thomas is if he plays in Dade All-star gm Sat &amp; practices at Under Armour Sun. Leading practice today</p>&mdash; Luke Stampini (@LukeStampini) <a href="https://twitter.com/LukeStampini/statuses/415143122705063936">December 23, 2013</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>


<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Calvin Ridley is one of the nation&#39;s top 2015 wide receivers. <a href="http://t.co/aWFVjlDc4w">http://t.co/aWFVjlDc4w</a> via <a href="https://twitter.com/247Sports">@247Sports</a></p>&mdash; Chris Nee (@CNee247) <a href="https://twitter.com/CNee247/statuses/415151071091097602">December 23, 2013</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>


The four-star Ridley, who hails from Pompano Beach, Fla., is one of the top WRs in 2015; his top three schools are Miami, Alabama, and Tennessee. Can Al Golden continue to keep top Florida targets in-state against stiff SEC competition?


<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>VIDEO: Ja&#39;Quan Newton at <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23CityofPalms&amp;src=hash">#CityofPalms</a> <a href="http://t.co/A9ZwrFlzBD">http://t.co/A9ZwrFlzBD</a></p>&mdash; InsideTheU.com (@InsideTheU) <a href="https://twitter.com/InsideTheU/statuses/415143649203089408">December 23, 2013</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>


Newton is the top signee in the Hurricanes’ 2014 basketball class. The four-star guard struggled against Jacksonville (Fla.) Providence in the 2013 City of Palms Classic, but it looks like Jim Larranaga landed a good one.


<h1>North Carolina</h1>


<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>.<a href="https://twitter.com/Rob_Harrington">@Rob_Harrington</a> breaks down Seventh Woods ... <a href="http://t.co/TyGFhnPnp3">http://t.co/TyGFhnPnp3</a></p>&mdash; Evan Daniels (@EvanDaniels) <a href="https://twitter.com/EvanDaniels/statuses/414978904663666688">December 23, 2013</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>


Woods is a wildly talented combo guard in the 2016 recruiting class. It’s early, obviously, but the five-star guard has Tobacco Road on his mind for his top two schools: UNC and Duke. Because of course.


<h1>Virginia Tech</h1>


<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>Clemson and Virginia Tech both had head coaches in last night to see 2014 F Kevin Ndahiro</p>&mdash; Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) <a href="https://twitter.com/AdamZagoria/statuses/415115954809765888">December 23, 2013</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>


To this point the 6-9 Ndahiro has drawn mostly mid-major interest. But this is also the time when major conference programs start widening their search to fill in gaps on their rosters.</br>

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>ICYMI <a href="https://twitter.com/LukeStampini">@LukeStampini</a> drops by and updates about another Delray Beach stud that favors the <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Hokies&amp;src=hash">#Hokies</a> <a href="http://t.co/hED5DzLMFR">http://t.co/hED5DzLMFR</a></p>&mdash; VTScoop247 (@VTScoop247) <a href="https://twitter.com/VTScoop247/statuses/415140067166781440">December 23, 2013</a></blockquote>
