Notre Dame to the ACC: Basketball Recruits They'll Have a Better Shot at Landing

It's official—Notre Dame is joining the ACC in every sport except football and hockey, and that means college basketball too.

While Notre Dame's loss of Tim Abromaitis means that the Irish aren't one of the top teams in the country, they are still in my Top 25 at No. 22.

However, if they want to stay in the Top 25 they are going to need some good recruits, and that's where this conference change can help them. The ACC is making a case to be called the best conference in college basketball, while the Big East is withering after the departures of Syracuse, Pittsburgh and now the Irish.

Conference prestige and the ability to earn a top seed in the NCAA tournament because of it can be big factors on the minds of some recruits. With this move comes another great recruiting pitch for head coach Mike Brey, and it will help him recruit these guys over the next few years.
