The ACC is holding its own with the Big Boys of the BCS this recruiting season -- not taking charge, not falling behind, just holding steady in the race for the nation's best recruits. The SEC, as usual, is hauling in the most elite talent, but the current numbers show the ACC has landed commitments from more top prospects than the Big 12 and Big East.

As we head into national signing day on Wednesday, here is a look at how the ACC stacks up against the other conferences, according to ESPN.com's recruiting commitment scorecard:

Conference -- ESPN 150 commitments

SEC -- 48
Big Ten -- 24
Pac-12 -- 18
ACC -- 16
Independents -- 9
Big 12 -- 9
Big East -- 2

Conference -- ESPN 300 commitments

SEC -- 94
Big Ten -- 44
Pac-12 -- 40
ACC -- 30
Big 12 -- 26
Independents -- 12
Big East -- 7

As far as the ESPN 150 recruits go, Clemson (4), Florida State (4), and Miami (4) are carrying the ACC. North Carolina (1), Virginia (1), and Virginia Tech (2), have also chipped in.
