Wednesday kicked off the fall signing period, and to a lot of people's surprise, State had the best class in the ACC: the Pack reeled in 6-4 Rodney Purvis, 6-7 T.J. Warren and 5-11 Tyler Lewis, a class ESPN ranked second nationally.
Right behind them comes UNC (#4 nationally, according to ESPN) with 6-9 Brice Johnson, 6-1 Marcus Paige, 6-11 Joel James and 6-6 J.P. Tokoto: a solid class, but no sure-fire star.
Wake is at #16 with 6-6 Arnaud Moto, 6-2 Codi Miller-McIntyre, 6-7 Devin Thomas, 6-8 Tyler Cavanaugh, 6-10 Andre Washington and 6-8 Aaron Rountree.
Maryland got 6-9 Shaquille Cleare, 6-8 Jake Layman and 6-1 Seth Allen.
Virginia signed 6-5 Justin Anderson, 6-7 Evan Nolte, 6-11Mike Tobey and 6-0 Teven Jones.
FSU bagged 6-2 Devon Bookert, 6-7 Montay Brandon, 6-9 Brit Robert Gilchrist and 6-4 Aaron Thomas.
Georgia Tech got point guard Chris Bolden and North Clayton forward Marcus Hunt in the fold and is rumored to be a favorite for 6-9 Robert Carter, who will announce Thursday.
Virginia Tech signed forwards Montrezl Harrell and Marshall Wood, both 6-8.
Clemson brings in 6-0 Jordan Roper, 6-7 Jaron Blossomgame,Â 6-2 Adonis Filer, 6-11 Cameroonian Landry Nnoko andÂ 6-8 Josh Smith.
B.C. can't bring in much after last season but did sign 6-2 Canadian Olivier Hanlon.
And Miami? They got 6-11 Tonye Jekiri and 6-3 Melvin Johnson.
Duke only signed one guy on Wednesday, but 6-3 Rasheed Sulaimon is not only the highest-ranked freshman, but just about a perfect fit for Duke.Â He's a definite keeper.
Of these guys, Sulaimon aside, we're most curious to see the following: Miller-Mcintyre, Cleare, Bookert, Gilchrist, Harrell, Hanlon, Jekiri and State's whole class. The first six may well exceed expectations.
