Committing to the U in Style, WR Stacy Coley Looks to Bring Some Swag Back to Miami

Yesterday, we rolled the dice and tried to predict where all the top uncommitted ACC recruiting prospects would land on National Signing Day. Some we got right, while others we got resoundingly incorrect. A look at yesterday’s predictions, with notes on what we got right/wrong.

So the final count: Six correct, nine wrong and two TBDs. As always, recruiting’s an inexact science. Even if you think you know what’s going to happen, there’s a pretty good chance you don’t. On the ACC front, the conference took some lumps at the top, but my quick take on the day is that the league recovered nicely, taking home 16 of the top 100 recruits (via the ESPN 300).

Plenty more National Signing Day coverage coming between tonight and tomorrow, so keep checking back for updates as we take a look at each ACC school’s class, and how it stacked up against the rest of the conference and the rest of the country.
