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?
