The ACC has come a long way in the national recruiting battles, mainly because of the quality assistants who have gravitated to ACC teams. The league’s top five recruiters include veterans at Florida State, Miami, Clemson and North Carolina who have plenty of victories on the trail over the years. The rankings also feature a surprise from Tobacco Road.

Miami's offensive line, from a forward-thinking perspective, has been greatly upgraded over the last two weeks.

First it was Kc McDermott (Wellington, Fla./Palm Beach Central) picking the Hurricanes over Notre Dame last Tuesday. And Reilly Gibbons (St. Petersburg, Fla./St. Petersburg Catholic), also an ESPN Watch List offensive tackle, doubled the Hurricanes' tally on Monday afternoon, his father confirmed.

Gibbons said Miami considers him to be a left tackle prospect.

During his recruitment, Gibbons racked up offers from across the country. Arkansas, Auburn, Cincinnati, Clemson, Colorado, Duke, Florida, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Mississippi State, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Carolina state, Northwestern, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Purdue, Rutgers, South Carolina, South Florida, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Virginia and West Virginia all offered.

Art Kehoe, the Hurricanes offensive line coach and longtime assistant, led Miami's pursuit of Gibbons.

Gibbons joins not only McDermott, but also Nick Linder (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla./St. Thomas Aquinas) Trevor Darling (Miami/Central) as other offensive linemen committed to Miami.

The Hurricanes are now up to six commitments for the Class of 2014.
