Cardinal Authority publisher Jody Demling breaks down where Louisville is trending with its top football targets in the Class of 2017

Cardinal Authority publisher Jody Demling breaks down where the University of Louisville is trending with its top football targets remaining in the Class of 2017 with just one day left until national signing day.

The University of Louisville's football staff is close to finished with its Class of 2017.

The Cardinals class is currently ranked No. 20 in the Scout.com rankings with 22 verbal commitments on the board with less than 24 hours until signing day. U of L is expected to announce 23 or 24 signees tomorrow.

And the Cardinals are still in on a number of top prospects.

Here's a look at how the Louisville staff is trending with some of its top remaining targets. NOTE: These might not the only players the Cardinals are still recruiting for the Class of 2017.

Mekhi Becton would be the biggest prospect the Cardinals could land in the final hours before signing day. Some find it hard to believe he will leave the state with Virginia Tech and Virginia recruiting him. Michigan is also right there and he visited Oregon last week. Sounds like Louisville has done everything they need to do to land the three-star monster lineman.

After a visit to Louisville last weekend, Guy Thomas is still undecided but we're hearing Louisville made up some ground. The current Nebraska commitment is expected to pick either Pittsburgh or Louisville on signing day.

A newer name on the radar, Ben Moos is down to three - U of L, Fresno State and California - and has a lot of ties to Louisville. His father is the Washington State athletic director and the former AD at Montana.

After a visit to Louisville several weeks ago, Brian Edwards seemed to be trending towards the Cardinals. But now it sounds like him landing in Louisville is a long shot. Expect him to stay in South Florida.

After Thomas didn't visit Louisville it was pretty obvious he wouldn't end up with the Cardinals. He's expected to announce tomorrow at 10 a.m. and it sounds like Miami.

A tough break for Davis, who just got caught in the Cardinals not needing a second running back. Sounds like he could end up at South Florida with Pittsburgh also in the mix.
