So how many guys will we sign

We have 15 commits and 12 seniors on the roster. Then there is the whole extra year thing with this year but the overriding 85 limit. Can a guy on scholarship come back next year as nonscholarship? It is enough to make your head hurt

recruiting times we are in. Imagine being a recruit now. Your 18, life sucks. Can't visit schools. Gotta go to college. Can't know for sure if a senior on a roster that you're looking to join will stay for another year or not? lol


sounds like just 16 or 17

I feel so sorry for the kids. They are the ones suffering the most during this "virus".
Never have so many young ones suffered so much because of something that doesn't affect them.
2020 blows!!!


Based on the extra year of eligibility...

the NCAA will have to seriously consider granting short term dispensations or increasing the scholarship limit from 85 to at least 100 if not more.

Let's not forget this is at least a 4 year problem and not a one year problem.

Let's say we only sign the 15 who have committed.

Than you have to add that to the 23 we signed last year who will all still be freshmen coming in to next season.

Now you have a log jam and a 38 man recruiting class, and you have to figure out how to balance the numbers until that class is gone so you can get back on track to taking 20-25 per class.

I haven't researched it, but you would have to assume the NCAA will grant an exception that any player that plays an extra year due to corona will not count toward the 85 scholarship limit.

Of course, that doesn't help the school with the extra cost of that scholarship though!

I thought I read some time back that the NCAA had already increased the scholarship numbers or it was under consideration. Even an increase in scholarship numbers will create problems down the road, particularly how it relates to recruiting. There are probably a lot of true seniors who have not decided whether or not they will move on or return.

The decommit Forman’s plan to take his visits didn’t work out to well.

I imagine all the recruits are frustrated like the rest of us to get back to some form of normal. Looks like the vaccine next month will be the help the country has been looking for.
