More on ACC recruiting: A numbers game

From ESPN:

In 2014, Swinney will probably sign 12-14 players -- a small number that factors in a little bit of attrition. In 2015, though, Swinney might sign 30 players because of a massive rising junior class. He can sign several mid-year players and count them back to 2014, and still sign 25 more players in February.

Some programs will sign 25 players no matter what, and figure it out later (greyshirts, prep school, grades, etc.). All of the programs have to whittle it down to 85 by August, though.

Some programs stretch the rules more than others, but having covered the ACC for a while, that’s typically not the style in this conference. Only two schools -- NC State and Wake Forest -- took advantage of the full 25 this year, and Pittsburgh was the only school to go over that limit.

The SEC was a different story. Half the league (Bama 26, Florida 30, Georgia 32, LSU 27, Vandy 27, A&M 32, and Ole Miss 28) went over 25.
