How many scholarships do we have left available?


Posted: Apr 12, 2017 9:32 AM
 

Hoping we have enough room to sign most of the top recruits: carman, henry, mitchell, surtain, wynn, salyer, ross or white. Carman to me is TOP priority. I see most people think that white and wynn are going to GA. I like henry's and ross's tape. Salyer, mitchell and surtain are solid as well.


Wondering that myself. Does either of the two medical

hardships open up an additional scholly? Because I had heard 15-17 for this year but it looks like we may have that many oversign worthy guys looking our way.

Green's medical exemption gives us one more scholarship.

Do you know how many Juniors will leave early?


Posted: Apr 12, 2017 9:42 AM
 

We have 7 rising Seniors, currently 82 of 85 scholarships granted, one will go to the winner of the starting punter battle, that makes 9 scholarships guaranteed available for 2018 and we already have 8 commitments. Some will leave early. How many? Who knows. Coaches have indicated a small class of around 15.

I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me.


Ferrell is the only soph I see that could leave early.***

Mitch Hyatt, Christian Wilkins...

Mark Fields, Austin Bryant, and Deon Cain if they have big years. Then there's always the handful of unexpected transfers. C.J. Fuller and Adam Choice will both have degrees and could decide to leave as well.

Why would CJ Fuller leave?

when he's in line to be starting?

2020 orange level member

He didn't say Fuller, he said Fuller OR Choice. It's not too

unreasonable to think that one of them could end up 3rd string behind the other and Feaster. Whoever that is may want to take the free grad transfer for more PT in 2018.

2020 white level member

My point is that we should hold off on anointing Feaster


Posted: Apr 12, 2017 1:14 PM
 

and actually let Fuller enjoy the #1 spot on the depth chart. If he gets passed, he gets passed, but I feel like there are too many people on here hoping it will happen. Is Feaster not a possibility to transfer if Etienne passes him on the depth chart and Fuller and Choice are the 1/2 punch this year?

None of those are sophs***

Hyatt, Cain, and Wilkins could also leave early. Lets face it Wilkins plays anything like he has the last 2 years then he is a 1st rounder.

Definitely the nine you mentioned and Noah Greens scholarship, probably 1 QB and 1 TE transfer, and I'd guess around 3 juniors to the draft (Wilkins, Hyatt, Cain). So that puts us at 15.

With Noah's medical issue opening a spot we have 11 guaranteed spots available. 8 of those spots have already been taken.

I don't know if the staff will stop taking commitments until after the season when early NFL departures/transfers will begin. I seriously doubt they'll take much more than 12-13 guys until that point.

I think we'll end up with between 16-18 in this class when all is said and done.

We will probably get a qb transfer as well as maybe another guy unexpectantly. Not to mention Wilkins, Hyatt, Cain, and McCloud could all go pro with a good year


not enough!


Posted: Apr 12, 2017 10:10 AM
 

but signing 15 or 16 at the quality of these guys we're on right now is as good or better than a large class with a bunch of hit or miss players (like the 2011 class, first instance)


BE great to pick up salyer and jackson


Posted: Apr 12, 2017 10:16 AM
 

salyer is a mean hard hitting olineman. Saw film of him doing one on one drills. He hits first and hard.

I know some eyes will roll and butts will bleed for posting this here but whatever:

All I know is we better start thinking offensive linemen soon and seriously.


7 seniors, 4 currently open, + attrition


Posted: Apr 12, 2017 1:04 PM
 

attrition is the million dollar question. we have quite a few guys who could go pro. we have a number of guys who could potentially be grad transfers elsewhere. we could also see underclassmen decide to leave with huge talent we are continually bringing in

The total looks like 15 or 16. Green's move has already been factored in because he made the decision in December. Tisch was not a scholarship player. We have 8 guys in the fold, so that leaves 7 or 8 slots remaining.
