Duke: 10 Pennsylvanians, 24 total from the North, 15 out-of-state Southerners.
Maryland: 20 Pennsylvanians among 34 Northerners, 6 out-of-state Southerners.
South Carolina: 5 Pennsylvanians, 12 from the North, 15 out-of-state Southerners.
Wake Forest: 5 Pennsylvanians, a total of 11 from the North, 10 out-of-state Southerners.
Virginia: 4 Pennsylvanians, 10 from the North, 5 out-of-state Southerners, 1 Iranian.

A glance at a few freshman squad lists shows North Carolina with 16 Pennsylvanians out of 24 Yankees on its 58-man frosh squad; Wake Forest with 24 Yankees, including 12 Pennsylvanians (and three Canadians) on its 43-man squad; and North Carolina State has 16 Northerners on its 33-man squad, including 12 from, naturally, Pennsylvania.
