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

Clemson

Priester is still working to get eligible for early enrollment in the spring. There are already comparisons of Priester to Jacoby Ford. That’s pretty lofty. Of course, Clemson lost out on the previous two Butler QBs, to Georgia and Tennessee. Ratliff is a 2015 prospect.

Duke

Well that certainly would help out Duke, which has been stung lately by missing on Kevon Looney and Reid Travis. Of course, this assumes that Okafor and Jones WILL go to the same school.

Georgia Tech

This looks like a pretty good pickup for the Yellow Jackets. Javarius Davis is a 2015 running back from Jacksonville, Fla. who already had offers from a host of schools, including Virginia Tech, Michigan State, Vanderbilt, Penn State, West Virginia, Maryland and Duke. Interestingly though, it appears Georgia Tech was caught off guard by this commitment.
Kinlaw is Scout.com’s No. 89 RB in the country. This would be an interesting development if he does start seriously looking at Wisconsin.

North Carolina

Tim Settle is a huge recruit (pun intended) for the Heels. Getting him on campus is big, but having him enjoy the trip is even bigger. Hines is one of the most highly sought North Carolina running backs in the class of 2015. But the state has a lot of talented backs in that class along with Hines. It’ll be imperative for UNC to get one or two of them. Gallaspy is another talented N.C. back like Hines. He also came to campus for the Virginia game. Speaking of needing to keep top N.C. products around, Juval Mollette is a wanted man. Ohio State, Clemson, Georgia Tech, NCSU, UNC and Tennessee have offered him. Both of the in-state schools are pursuing him hard. The 2016 SG from Fairfax (Va.) Paul VI has ACC offers already from Virginia, NCSU, Wake Forest and Virginia Tech. The Tar Heels are showing some interest. Bentley Spain, four-star OT commit, signs his LOI.

N.C. State

Unlike most tight ends going to college, Cole Cook might need more work on his receiving game, rather than blocking. With his Carrollton (GA) prep team, he is being used mostly as a blocker.

Syracuse

Well that can’t be good. No specifics other than “violation of school policy.” As Goodman wrote: “McCullough will now have to find another school quickly in order to make sure he remains on track academically to attend Syracuse next season.” For his part, McCullough doesn’t seem too worried …

Virginia

Normally when you’re recruiting against teams from a lower hoops conference, it’s a sign you may be reaching for a prospect. I don’t think that applies when that team is VCU.
