Here's a team-by-team breakdown of the ACC's 2012 recruiting classes. Mario Edwards (Denton, Texas/Billy Ryan), the nation's top overall player, has the physical ability to contribute right away in Tallahassee. Breakdown: Florida State closed well down the stretch and was able to hold on to its top-three ranking on the final day. The class is not big but more than half the players reside in the ESPNU 150.
