ACC Recruiting Links, Jan. 24

Signing day is coming, and it's coming fast. This week featured a great amount of talent commiting to their future ACC schools, so let's take a look.

The Wolfpack recieved four 2014 commitments this week that included a hat trick of defensive backs, as well as some help on the O-Line. Troy Vincent Jr., Elliot Davis and Shawn Boone hope to become the eventual backfield for N.C. State, and after a disappointing 2-10 season for UVa, in-state OT Will Richardson changed his pledge to Dave Doeren.

Coach Cut landed his 17th commit of his 2014 class at Duke. Three-star defensive tackle Edgar Cerenord out of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is the No. 55 ranked DT in the country.

Clemson added another talented WR to its class. Trevion Thompson, a four-star receiver out of Durham, N.C., commited to the Tigers after taking his official visit to the school this past weekend.

North Carolina also got some good news in the receving department. Three-star wideout Devin Perry took his official visit to Chapel Hill this past weekend and committed to the program on the final day of his visit. 

Michael Campanaro may be gone for Wake Forest, but first-year coach Dave Clawson was pretty set on getting someone to replace him quickly. Tyler Henderson, a two-star slot reciever, committed to the Deacs this week. 

Syracuse landed a defensive back duo this week. Three-star WR Treevon Prater committed to the Orange, but he will play either safety or cornerback. Three-star cornerback Juwan Dowels pledged to Syracuse over ACC powerhouse Clemson. 

No new news in the 2014 class for the Canes, but they did receive a pledge to their next group. Three-star offensive lineman Kevin Feder became the second member of Miami's 2015 class.

Joe Giles-Harris is a three-star playmaker out of New Jersey, and it seems that Boston College has been recruiting the 2015 linebacker the hardest. The Eagles will most likely be in a battle with Rutgers for Giles-Harris' services. 

Florida State will be expecting a group of five-star prospects on campus this weekend. The Seminoles' 2014 class is already at 29, but that won't stop Jimbo Fisher from pursuing top talent. 

Georgia Tech took advantage of the Contact Period of recruiting, offering four underclassmen from the same high school, on the same day. 

Brady Taylor was a three-star offensive tackle committed to Virginia Tech. That was, until Ohio State and Urban Meyer got a hold of him.
