Boston College
Steve Addazio has 30 new players coming in as part of Boston College's 2014 recruiting class. The next thing he's going to have to do is develop all of those players.

One of the areas where Clemson is still in need after signing day is defensive end. Five-star offensive tackle Mitch Hyatt committed to Clemson a full year ahead of his 2015 signing day.

Duke is promoting Scottie Montgomery to offensive coordinator, replacing Kurt Roper. Rasheed Sulaimon's role is continuing to expand under Coach K and the Duke Blue Devils.

Florida State
Jimbo Fisher stays extremely involved throughout the recruiting process, and this is probably one of the reasons FSU has a top-three class this year. The Seminoles raided much of the University of Miami's "territory" this year to fill out their class.

Georgia Tech
Wesley Simms takes a look at Stepheny Durham as part of a series getting to know all of the new Georgia Tech recruits. Kelly Quinlan breaks down the offensive players that the Yellow Jackets picked up on signing day this year.

Florida State is coming to play Maryland this weekend, and it's a game that neither team can really afford to lose. Randy Edsall is hoping that unheralded prospects such as linebacker Nnamdi Egbuaba can make an impact on Maryland's football team as much as the top guys.

The Hurricanes bolstered their pass rush and brought in the best recruiting class of the Al Golden era this year. Juan Toribio breaks down the recruiting class, position by position. 

North Carolina
Marcus Paige has become Mr. Second Half according to ESPN's C.L. Brown. Paige has gone on a scoring outburst in the second half of games over and over again this season. Harold Gutmann writes that Elijah Hood is the player that highlights UNC's 2014 recruiting class.

N.C. State
ESPN is going to be televising N.C. State baseball 31 times this season (if you count ESPN3), starting on Feb. 21 when State hosts Appalachian. BackingThePack.com breaks down State's defensive players of the 2014 recruiting class.

Notre Dame
Notre Dame brought in some extremely talented offensive linemen in its recruiting class. Quarterback Montgomery VanGorder is going to walk-on with the Irish as a freshman next season.

Pitt wide receivers coach Bobby Engram is leaving the school to take a job with the Baltimore Ravens. Several of the CardiacHill.com writers recap Pitt's signing day on their latest podcast.

Scott Shafer has been reassuring his commits and feels bad about the timing of Rob Moore leaving the team for a job with the Buffalo Bills. Rakeem Christmas' basketball education at Syracuse has taken an offensive turn.

David Teel writes that Malcolm Brogdon's emergence affords Joe Harris some time in the shadows. Evan Nolte is trying to find his shot in limited time with the Cavaliers.

Virginia Tech
GobblerCountry.com looks at the performances of each of Virginia Tech's coaches throughout the recruiting period. Virginia Tech football players performed well off of the field last year, maybe even better than they did on it.

Wake Forest
Robert Reinhard looks at the quarterbacks of Wake Forest's 2014 recruiting class. The Deacons are going to have Travis Smith and John Wolford coming into the program next year. Bart Johnston looks back on Travis McKie's career with Wake Forest as it slowly comes to an end this season.
