It was a relatively mellow slate in the ACC this week, but there turned out to be several results of significance. Clemson defeated NC State in Raleigh, N.C., a place known for upsets, and Virginia Tech escaped against Marshall in overtime.

In recruiting, a couple offers were issued and a commitment was made. More in our weekend wrap from around the ACC:

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State's summer camps have been hit or miss in recent years with commitments. But when they come, they come in flurries.

Such was the case with this first session. The Seminoles landed a bunch of commitments that grew their 2014, and 2015, classes.

NEW COMMITS

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Another commitment has come in for head coach Jimbo Fisher during Florida State's first summer camp.

Rising senior Malique Jackson (Jesup, Ga./Wayne County), a long, rangy athlete at 6-foot-1, committed to the Seminoles after camping in front assistant coach Jeremy Pruitt. Jackson primarily worked out at cornerback, a place where Pruitt seems to like size.

"Yes, they recruited him as a corner," said Jackson's high school coach, Jody Grooms.

Jackson is the Seminoles' fourth commitment of this camp session, joining Ryan Sousa, Ethan Frith and Marlon Gonzalez.

Jackson attends the same school that produced current starting right guard Tre' Jackson.
