Current ACC Football Commitment List

Here is a current list of football commitments for the ACC Conference.  This comes compliments of the Atlanta Journal Constitution which does a great job of covering college football recruiting.  Check out this latest list of commitments and see where your favorite ACC team is in the recruiting race.  New Miami head coach Al Golden is leading the way with seven commitments.  Virginia Tech is also up there with five commitments.  Everyone else is either sitting at one or two commitments.  These numbers will certainly change in the coming month as coaches hit spring practices at prep schools across the country.

Only going into the 9th grade but he already has numbers that would put many high school seniors to shame.  With that, Peyton Newell walked away with National Underclassman Combine Ultimate 100 Combine King honors.  Newell,  standing at 6’2″ 221 lbs. ,  was the strongest 8th grader ever at the event after cranking out 31 reps at 135 lbs.  In addition,  he ran a 4.81 in the shuttle and 5.24 in the 40 yard dash.  To quote the folks and NUC “Newell has major potential”.   He has plenty of time to improve on those gaudy number since he won’t be graduating until 2014.  Congratulations to Peyton Newell.   Click here to view Peyton Newell’s highlight videoClick here to view his NUC 100 Combine highlight video.

Doug Rigg Commits to West Virginia

Another day and another member going D-I. The latest commitment comes from hard nose, hard hitting New Jersey linebacker Doug Rigg. Rigg hails from Bergen Catholic high school in Bloomfield, New Jersey.

The 6’1″ 210 lb. senior saw contributed heavily on both sides of the ball. On offense, Rigg put up 500 yards on the ground as a running back and found the end zone nine times. From his defensive end spot, Rigg totaled 65 tackles and had seven sacks. In the weight room, he puts up 325 lbs. on the bench press and squats 435 lbs. He is the fourth linebacker commit for the Mountaineers in their 2010 class and the first commit from the state of New Jersey for the Mountaineers.

IN the PIT: OL – Brandon Linder v. DL – Josh Shirley

IN The PIT – 2009 Third Edition:

In the RED CORNER: Brandon Linder – OT – St. Thomas Aquinas H.S. (Florida)

IN THE BLUE CORNER: Josh Shirley – DE – Kaiser High School (California)

In our two previous IN the PIT segments we had a running back go up against a linebacker. Then we had a wide receiver take on a defensive back. It seems only fitting now that we let the big boys have some fun. Afterall, this is called “IN the PIT” which means you have to get some big boys in this thing.

IN THE PIT: WR – Chris Dunkley vs. CB – Latwan Anderson

Chris Dunkley – WR – Royal Palm Bay, FL

VS. Latwan Anderson – CB – Lakewood, Oh

In our second edition of “IN THE PIT” we have matched up two of the best athletes in our Database.

In one corner we have the highly recruited Chris Dunkley out of Royal Palm Bay High School in Royal Palm Bay, FL. There are no small plays with Dunkley. The routine play suddenly turns into a crowd on their feet and women screaming as Dunkley eats up the yardage. Blessed with game breaking speed and a thirst for the end zone, Dunkley found pay dirt 13 times last year and opened up a business where he was contracted to make defenders look stupid for free. At 5’11 169 he plays bigger than those numbers and runs a 4.43 forty but will that be enough…. View Chris Dunkley’s highlight video.

IN THE PIT: LB – Jeff Luc vs. RB – Tyrrell Willis

Jeff Luc – LB – Port St. Lucie, FL

VS. Tyrrell Willis – RB – Murray Kentucky

In our first edition of “IN THE PIT” we have matched up two of the most physical players on the entire website.

In one corner we have Jeff Luc out of Treasure Coast High School. Since landing on in January, Luc has become legendary. His penchant for the big hit has made his video a must see on this site. Football fans from coast to coast have been stunned by his level of violence on the football field. His hits have been so hard that some have speculated that they may be fake (don’t know how you would do that but…). Nevertheless,  let it be known, Jeff Luc will hit you and at 6’1″ 235 lbs, he is equipped to bring the pain. If somehow you were under a rock, locked up in prison or shipwrecked on the high seas and have not yet seen Luc’s film, you can look at it here: Jeff Luc’s highlight video.
