1) it could be due to the Transfer element you just asked

about. If they have room on their 85 to sign 32 players and they had 7 transfers then that could be it. or 2) they didn't sign 25 guys in 2021. They can count early enrollees(Jan) back to the 2021 class. 3) if they end up in August looking like they will be over 85, then they could ask a couple to wait until Jan 2023 to enroll(grayshirt)
Remember TAM claimed they only had like 38-40 players for the Gator Bowl due to Covid, Transfers, opt outs and other attrition. Sounds like they were well under 85 at the end of last season - some of that could be impacts may be residual effects of the coaching change a few years back that create bubbles in their roster too.
