ACC Football Commitment Lists: Atlantic Division, Aug. 15

Thursday, August 15, 2013 9:44am
By: Andrew Tie

I’m not really sure if this qualifies as a commitment update since hardly anything happened, but here is a small update on the Atlantic Division. The teams going crazy over the summer with commitments coming left and right – I’m looking at you, Boston College, Florida State and N.C. State – have significantly slowed down. FSU has surged to the lead with 23 commitments followed by the Wolfpack at 22 and then Boston College at 21. 

For an update on the Coastal Division, check out last week’s post.

All names of recruits will appear in bold.

Boston College

The #BeADude campaign has continued to stay at 21 recruits, which has been a high point for the Eagles this offseason. 


Clemson was also one of the schools that didn’t make any moves in the last two weeks. They continue to have a strong class of 15 recruits, of which most are in the three- to four-star range. 

Florida State

Maryland defensive end Rick Leonard became the second DE commit for the Seminoles after he chose FSU over Clemson this past week. 

N.C. State

The Wolfpack also have slowed down after a big summer in Dave Doeren’s first offseason. After hitting North Carolina hard, the Pack is sitting at 22 recruits and looking for just a few more to finish up the class. 


2013 WR commit Corey Cooper, who is in prep school after not qualifying, has had inquiries from other schools. Otherwise, the Orange continue to have 10 recruits committed. 

Wake Forest

In-state athlete Jaylan Barbour became the first wide receiver commit for the Demon Deacons. 

Check out the updated lists and player rankings below.
