ACC Signing Day dream team

Signing Day Dream Teams: Big Ten | SEC

It was a great recruiting year in the ACC in 2008, especially for Miami, Florida State and Clemson.

How good?

Those three teams boast 19 of the 24 slots on the ACC Signing Day Dream Team.

Miami leads the way with nine players on the team led by the nation's top defensive tackle in Marcus Forston. Of those nine, including Forston, five hail from the same school Miami (Fla.) Northwestern. Could this be the year that puts the ACC back amongst the elite conferences in the nation?

QB E.J. Manuel
HIGH SCHOOL: Virginia Beach (Va.) Bayside
COLLEGE: Florida State
BUZZ: Could solve FSU's recent quarterback issues.
RB Ryan Williams
HIGH SCHOOL: Manassas (Va.) Stonewall Jackson
COLLEGE: Virginia Tech
BUZZ: Too talented to redshirt and could be the next great back in Blacksburg.
RB Josh Haden
HIGH SCHOOL: Fort Washington (Md.) Friendly
COLLEGE: Boston College
BUZZ: With no BC running backs returning, Haden could be the starter right away.
WR Tommy Streeter
HIGH SCHOOL: Miami (Fla.) Northwestern
BUZZ: Huge wideout will be a red zone threat.
WR Aldarius Johnson
HIGH SCHOOL: Miami (Fla.) Northwestern
BUZZ: Touchdown maker had 31 in his last two years of high school.

OL Antoine McClain
HIGH SCHOOL: Anniston, Ala.

BUZZ: One of only a few players who left Alabama.
OL Vinston Painter
HIGH SCHOOL: Norfolk (Va.) Maury

OL Zebrie Sanders
HIGH SCHOOL: Clayton (Ohio) Northmont
COLLEGE: Florida State
BUZZ: Great build with plenty of room to add good weight.
OL Brandon Washington
HIGH SCHOOL: Miami (Fla.) Northwestern
BUZZ: Massive interior lineman should help trouble spot down the line for 'Canes.
OL Benjamin Jones
HIGH SCHOOL: Miami (Fla.) Northwestern
BUZZ: Some say he has the most potential of all the Miami Northwestern kids.
ATH Jarmon Fortson
HIGH SCHOOL: Columbus (Ga.) Carver
COLLEGE: Florida State
