There really wasn't a major recruiting battle in the ACC, but the recruitment of Austin Rivers was the most intriguing. A long-time Florida commitment, Rivers was rumored to be involved with Duke for months before he eventually officially decommitted. Then North Carolina and Kansas jumped into the picture, but many analysts felt this was just posturing by Rivers to make it look like he didn't just decommit from Florida so he could go to Duke. In the end Rivers did choose Duke, and whether or not there was in fact even a recruiting battle at all is very much in question.
The top five prospects headed to the ACC are going to the traditional powers of the conference, Duke or North Carolina. And in the best by category section of this breakdown, the only other school besides Duke or North Carolina to have representatives is Virginia Tech.
Where is the point?
There is actually only one ranked point guard going to the ACC. Top 30 lead guard Quinn Cook is headed to Duke, but even Cook is known for his scoring ability. That is right in line with the recruiting trend of the ACC which is scoring perimeter players. Led by Rivers, fourteen prospects out of the Rivals150 who are known as scoring perimeter players are headed to the ACC.
