ACC scores recruiting wins after FSU's title run

The top recruiter in the Atlantic Coast Conference this offseason might have been Jameis Winston.

Coach Jimbo Fisher says recruits lined up for the chance to play with the Heisman Trophy winner.

That's a big reason why the defending national champion Seminoles signed one of the nation's best classes - a group that includes two five-star receivers and a four-star wideout.

Fisher said Wednesday "they want to play with him and know he can get them the ball."

ACC coaches also used the league's success as a pitch to recruits. Not every coach can say the Heisman winner and defending BCS champ are in their league this year.

The tactic worked. The league's schools turned Florida State's victory in the BCS title game into 14 individual wins on Signing Day.
