Biggest storyline in 2015: Lots of talent returns but can the Corsairs reload on both the offensive and defensive line?
Names to watch: Offensive tackle Sean Foster is verbally committed to Minnesota after drawing offers nationwide and tight end Noah Turner is holding multiple major DI scholarship offers this summer.
Biggest holes to fill: Carmel welcomes back just one starter each on the offensive and the defensive line.
EDGY's early take: It's all about how well the offensive line develops here. Bitto runs the option and has all the skill position pieces in place. If the line comes to play look out.
