It's interesting to note the varying ACC schools' philosophies. Florida State, for example, really emphasizes height (it's trendy to say "length."). Take a look at the Seminoles' incoming class and you'll see. I've included, courtesy of the ACC, all the recruits at the end of this post. Last year, Maryland's guard-oriented team bested Florida State's height-oriented team. The Seminoles struggled at times with experienced guards such as Greivis Vasquez and Eric Hayes. Not that Maryland wouldn't mind having a 7-footer such as Florida State's Solomon Alabi, who declared for the NBA draft.
