There has never been any question that the Louisville Football Program’s primary recruiting pipeline has been focused on the state of Florida while also having some great success in Georgia and Ohio. According to Rivals recruiting service, Charlie Strong and his staff have at this point extended offers to 20 4-Star prospects and one 5-Star prospect for the class of 2014. Of those 21, eight are from the Sunshine State, five from Ohio and four from Georgia leaving just four from the remaining 47 states. Not too surprising considering of the Cards current 102 man roster only 18% are from outside these pipelines and the state of Kentucky. Here is an early breakdown of the high-star targets who hold Louisville offers within the pipeline states.
