    How many could we have signed this cycle?

    How come some sites have us with 18 recruits and some have us as 19? Did that transfer get counted on some sites but not others?

    Did we not sign more because we didnt have back up guys or we just missed on every one else even the back up guys?

    Most felt 24 was the max....but that includes Grimes and Jefferson....so 22 signees. The other discrepancy may be some including Randy Russell and others don't.
    IF Gerald signs Friday they are probably about where they would like, might have taken an npf or Boykin if they had signed

    My sense from Coach's presser and the status of recruiting is we signed all we had in the pipeline that we thought could compete. We didn't reach on plan C guys and didn't have enough plan B guys we liked in the pipeline. Understandable for a transition class. Always gonna miss on a few and we were in on some late we didn't expect to be in on - Silvera for example and even got Malik L.

    I understood from the presser that we were done. I assumed that meant not Gerald, but I'm open to other interpretations.

    Have no insight there...other than there appears to be room, they recruited him hard, and he generally has seemed to want uf

    Make no mistake, if Boykin and NPF wanted in we would have 2 extra kids in this class (along w/ all the ones we did get). The staff wouldn't have pulled McDowell's offer or any other offer.

    We're going into the next cycle short, so we should be able to land a bigger class next year (obviously). I expect more attrition before the fall begins as well.

    Also, if Gerald wants in I'm sure he's a take as well.

    Yes on Oline.
    No on Dline.
    16 Oline includes 5 seniors so we will need another 4-5 recruits next year. 16 was the same number for Oline when Urban and Mullen were here before and common among many teams.
    13 Dline if you include CeCe Jefferson and Ant Clayton. Some say they will be DE/OLB in 2018. Seniors are Clark and Jefferson so we will need 4-5 recruits on Dline next year. We will have to watch what develops from the spring to see who is playing where and how that changes the depth chart numbers.

    One option possible now is the chance to add a graduate transfer should someone attractive come available

    I'm guessing some sites are still counting Randy Russell and some aren't. It's already been ruled that his scholarship is now a medical hardship and his "counter" does not count. So, it probably needs to be updated on some sites. (this is just my guess as to why some sites have different numbers for our class).
