5 seems about right
Posted: May 25, 2014 9:33 AM

We have 17 defensive linemen on right now. 2 of those were walk-ons. We typically target 15 OL and 15 DL on the roster. We'll lose 6 DL after this year. If the staff wanted to keep 17 (2 over target), they'll grab 6. If they want to have 15 on the roster, they'll take 4.

But, I think you're right in that if we end up with 7 studs wanting to commit, Dabo will take them. Also, we only have 3 DT/DEs that are Freshmen/RS Freshmen in 2014. I can see going over the typical 4 per year model and picking up 5 to better average out the underclassmen. With getting so many commitments so early, I think we'll know the answer to this question by the time the summer is out. At some point, we'll simply run out of scholarships.
