Wolfpack, ACC recruiting is rising on Rivals

Our standard for discerning the national rankings of our area schools is normally, but sometimes the contrast with can be interesting.

We gave you Scout’s current take on the ACC earlier this week—Miami’s Class of 2010 was No.9 nationally but the next ACC school didn’t pop up until No.24, with Clemson.

Rivals, though, has four ACC members among its top 22 classes—Miami leading here as well at No.12, followed by Virginia Tech (18), Clemson (21) and N.C. State (22).

Coach Tom O’Brien’s Wolfpack is also a respectable 31st on Scout, and NCSU has had the strongest in-state recruiting season of any of N.C.’s five major universities.

Where does Rivals rank the other Carolinas’ programs?

South Carolina of the SEC is No.30, followed by North Carolina (36), Wake Forest (53), Duke (57) and Conference USA’s East Carolina (81).

Factor in Raleigh's predominance as a gridiron cancer, and those rankings drop big-time.
