Breaking down Big East recruiting

If you haven't seen it already, I wanted to alert you to an article by Scouts Inc.'s Bill Conley in which he analyzes the current recruiting classes of each Big East team.

Conley likes the classes being assembled by Pittsburgh, West Virginia, South Florida and Louisville as the best in the league right now. He said Cincinnati has done well but needs to close strong; however, one of the top prospects in the class, defensive end Jibreel Black, has re-opened his recruitment and is now looking at Michigan and Indiana, among others.

Those who need to turn it up in the last two weeks, Conley says, are Rutgers and UConn. The Huskies, he says, don't have enough highly-rated players. Then again, Randy Edsall has always succeeded in finding under-the-radar guys and developing them into top-level performers.

No Big East teams currently rank among Scouts Inc.'s top 25 best classes, which was updated today.
