    There is no 25 limit cap each recruiting season. There are too many programs today that have gone over 25 for that to be the case.

    As I argued for at the time, I think the count back rule still applies.

    Very interesting...would you care to enlighten us on who those are. It would seem UGa is over the 25 cap...any others?

    Just go to 247 Sports, Rivals, and Scout. The top 3 ranked teams all went over 25. I wouldn't bother with ESPN until later tonight or tomorrow as they are always slow in updating their public site.

    You forgot to add that it does not apply to UF as we are always on self-imposed probation.

    In December, USF had 29 LOIs.

    Yes, Alabama & Tennessee always get at least 25 to 32.

    The wrongly presumed 25 limit isn't directly related the being required to be at or below the 85 limit as of NSD in February. It is my fervent hope that Stricklin ends this practice in favor of allowing over signing by 2 on NSD to account for the loss of players that we always have after the spring semester or even in the summer. UF is not required to be at or below 85 until the freshmen report in June.

    The lists out there right now include a some of what are commitments rather than signees. I think I'll wait and see how it all shakes out in a few days to judge whether any schools have over 25 signees.

    Start with Texas today. They have 27 signed LOIs in the 3rd ranked class. They are showing no commitments:

    I saw that, among others, but I don't trust these sites that they have checked with every team to see if a signed LOI has been rec'd. What does the official UTex Athletic Dept. site say? It'll all shake out in a few days.

    Welcome to the world of recruiting! Just sit back and admire for awhile. BTW we are at 84 on scholly as of now. It will probably change before Spring ball starts so don't get too caught up in that number for now.
    @Notoriousgator will now add his 2 cents.

    There is no limit to the number of commitments, and there is no limit to the number of letters of intent a school can sign. There is, however, a hard and fast rule that limits new grants-in-aid to 25 per recruiting season. So you can oversign all you want as long as you have a plan in place to deal with more than 25 recruits demanding their scholarship if the numbers turn out that way.

    I see Bama only took 20. I doubt that was intentional and likely a few they wanted went to georgia.
