2013 ACC Football Recruiting Breakdown By State: June 29, 2012

One of the cool things about compiling all this ACC football recruiting data is you can slice it a number of different ways, providing some insights into the incoming 2013 classes. One of the interesting cuts of the data is looking at the star rankings across the four major recruiting services by state.

First, some updates from the last time we looked at this data.

No movement for Clemson, North Carolina, Syracuse, Virginia Tech or Wake Forest this week. Let's crunch some numbers shall, we?

Here's the breakdown with Rivals.com on the left and Scout.com on the right.

State Rivals NR 2* 3* 4* 5* Total Scout NR 2* 3* 4* 5* Total
North Carolina 6 6 11 2 25 3 11 11 25
Florida 1 17 5 23 6 12 5 23
Virginia 1 2 13 4 19 1 6 10 3 20

Grand Total 20 21 89 23 1 154 11 46 76 20 1 154

A couple notes:

-- A bit surprised to see North Carolina take the early lead over Florida for the state with the most ACC commitments.

-- Apparently there is no such thing as a 2* prospect that hails from the Sunshine State. According to Rivals.com that is. Or at least there are no 2* prospects that are committed to ACC schools. I know it's still early but maybe, just maybe there's a bit of a regional bias to these recruiting rankings?

-- The top five most represented states shouldn't come as much of a surprise -- North Carolina, Florida, Virginia, Maryland, Georgia -- but note that Ohio, Pennsylvania and Connecticut, three states where BC recruits heavily, are well represented. The Eagles currently have 75 percent of the Connecticut kids and 33 percent of the Ohio recruits (as does Pittsburgh).
