From the DO posted in today's articles

"Brandon Huffman, a national recruiting analyst for At their request, this network is being blocked from this site., said the uncertainty of the Big East, and even just the rumors that the conference could possibly lose its automatic bid to the Bowl Championship Series, will hurt SU's recruiting competitors Connecticut and Rutgers.

While the Scarlet Knights will continue playing Louisville, Cincinnati and UConn in conference play, the Orange get national powers Florida State, Virginia Tech and Miami.

Farrell and Huffman both said that will give Syracuse an advantage in the Northeast, where the team does most of its recruiting now. The Orange will have a pitch that trumps UConn and Rutgers, and one that now rivals Boston College. Farrell said he thinks BC is hurt the most by Syracuse's move to the ACC because it can no longer use its conference as leverage over SU."

This is why RU & UConn are best left in the Big East.

I liked this too

"Huffman compared it to one of the big moves in last year's conference expansion carousel, when Colorado leapt from the Big 12 to the Pac-12. The Buffaloes have the No. 45 recruiting Class for 2012 in Scout's rankings, compared to No. 62 in 2011 and No. 70 in 2010.

The move to the Pac-12 gave Colorado more exposure in California, a prime recruiting state for the school. Syracuse can make Florida and Georgia even bigger pieces of its pipeline through the ACC.

But the move to the ACC could trigger a big-time recruit to finally give SU a shot."​

Did Colorado actually get more recruits from California? Or did their ranking improve just because they were going to the Pac-12?

The Big 12 has a pretty good following and reputation so I doubt that just moving to the PAC would give them a bump ratings wise in overrated prospects.
