Most important ACC recruiting targets
September, 17, 2013
By Jared Shanker | ESPN Insider
Few recruits are labeled indispensable to a class, but there are must-have prospects on the recruiting board for every school across the country. The reasons vary, however, ranging from whether the recruit fills a position of need or if he is an in-state prospect a program cannot afford to miss.
Here is the top target for each ACC school and the reasons behind it.
S Lubern Figaro (Everett, Mass./Everett)
6-foot-1, 180 pounds
ESPN 300 rank: N/A
Steve Addazio’s first full class at BC is close to completion, but he would like to add one more important in-state piece before signing day. Figaro continues to list BC among his top five, along with Michigan State, Syracuse, Vanderbilt and Wisconsin. The Badgers will get his first official visit, as he will be in Madison this weekend. The Eagles have some work to do to keep Figaro at home, but there is a lot of time left to secure his pledge.
