2018 ACC National Signing Day/Recruiting Head Coach
Willie Taggart, Florida State: Miami and Clemson might have come up with more high-end talent, but considering how late Willie Taggart came into the process, he was able to keep up with the top teams in the ACC.
Yeah, he helped land a lot of Jimbo Fisher’s recruits, but he also came up with a huge February, landing versatile talents Anthony Grant and Tre’Shaun Harrison, and defensive end Malcolm Lamar – among others – to keep the talent flowing into Tallahassee.
