By Jared Shanker | ESPN Insider
An interesting look at recruiting classes over the better part of the past decade, the Ultimate 300 took years of data and on-field performance and compiled it to complete the list of the 300 best recruits since 2006. It is no surprise that Alabama had the most former recruits in the rankings, but it is an ACC school that finished No. 2.
How a prospect fared in college impacted where he was slotted, although NFL production was not considered. Below are the top five recruits in the Ultimate ESPN 300 to sign within the ACC.
