A look at five recruiting storylines from the Big East worth watching following spring football.

Louisville needs to focus locally

With seven commitments, Louisville's program is certainly becoming more of a recruiting force under Charlie Strong, who is relating well to prospects. His name is mentioned about as often as any head coach in recruiting and he's obviously very active. Still, his main goal hasn't been reached just yet: keeping local prospects in-state. Of the seven verbal pledges he has, two are from Kentucky. With an above-average crop of talent locally, that number needs to grow.
