The ACC came out with its Spring Football Prospectus on Thursday. It’s a 35-page production loaded with information.
Georgia Tech leads the conference with 62 returning lettermen, and 19 returning starters. (The ACC includes punters and placekickers in returning starters).
Here’s a rundown of returning starters by division.
Virginia Tech: 16
North Carolina: 16
Boston College: 16
N.C. State: 15
Wake Forest: 14
Florida State: 13
For what it’s worth, Tech put 10 players on the ACC’s all-star watch list:
QB Josh Nesbitt, RBs Jonathan Dwyer and Roddy Jones, WR Demaryius Thomas, G Cord Howard, DE Derrick Morgan, LB Sedric Griffin and DBs Morgan Burnett, Rashaad Reid and Cooper Taylor.
Every team has a bunch of guys on there. In fact, Duke has 11, including two tight ends.
Here are some other tidbits that jumped out at me:
