With most teams having put the finishing touches on their 2014 recruiting classes, here's a breakdown of how the teams in the Atlantic Coast Conference fared:

Duke Blue Devils

Grade
Duke

The nation's best recruiting class has the No. 1 player in the country in Jahlil Okafor and the No. 1 point guard in Tyus Jones. What makes them special is that they play the two most important positions on the floor and can be difference-makers. Adding small forward Justise Winslow,  who is a tremendous versatile defender, will bridge the gap for what is needed to win. Grayson Allen is a strong, athletic guard who makes shots and attacks the rim. This class gives coach Mike Krzyzewski the opportunity to play with multiple lineup combinations, which he couldn't do last season. By adding this class of impact players, along with plenty of returning talent, the Blue Devils should be primed for an ACC title and a successful postseason run.
