CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- In its 30th annual breakdown of college baseball's top recruiting classes, Collegiate Baseball newspaper ranked the Miami Hurricanes' 2012 class as the ninth-best in the nation.

The Hurricanes' 13-member class, comprised of 11 true freshmen, one redshirt freshman and one junior, was ranked third-best in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The rankings are based on players who enroll at school each fall. Players who initially signed with a school and then signed a professional contract after being drafted do not count in the overall evaluation. 

Clemson (No. 5), North Carolina (No. 8), Florida State (No. 19), Georgia Tech (No. 28) and Virginia (No. 32) rounded out the ACC teams ranked in the top 40.
