    WOW, this early signing period is going to make it tough. But after it we will know a little more about the number of scollies left to give. I am going to guess the entire class; both early and February signees. Here is my stab at it:

    QB1 (1 early)
    RB2
    TE2(1 early)
    WR3
    OL4(2 early)
    DL4
    LB4(1 early)
    S2
    DB3
    k1
    total=26

    We have other solid commits that are EEs:
    RB - Pierce, Clement
    DB/S/LB - Burney, Russell.
    Who is the 2nd OL EE and did you include Burney as a LB or is Reese an EE?
    Also, is Tyquan Thornton an EE?

    Aren't Bruce & Dunlap supposed to be EEs on the OLine?

    26 would be a rather incredibly large class for a newbie coach given any circumstances.

    I don't think there will be 4 DLine players. I think that 5 or 6 OLine and possibly 5 WRs is more likely.

    There is a transfer kid named Dunlap. Not really an ee, but I think he's already enrolled.

    Don't know who Bruce is.

    I know nothing on the early signees. It just adds another mystery to the signing period for everybody. Early next year I will add names to my guesses and by then we will have names of the EEs.

    QB-Emory Jones-Early Signing
    RB-Iverson Clement-Early Signing
    RB-Dameon Pierce-Early Signing
    WR-Tyquan Thornton
    WR-Corey Gammage
    WR-Jacob Copeland
    WR-Kevin Johnson
    TE-Kyle Pitts-Early Signing
    TE-Dante Lang
    OL-Nicholas Petit-Frere
    OL-William Barnes
    OL-Richard Gouraige
    OL-Chris Bleich-Early Signing
    OL-Ed Montilus
    DL-Noah Jefferson-Early Signing
    LB-Nick Bonito
    LB-David Reese-Earl Signing
    DB-Amari Burney-Early Signing
    DB-Randy Russel-Early Signing
    DB-Trey Dean
    DB-John Huggin
    K-Evan McPherson-Early Signing

    Came up a little short on DL & LB but unless we pull some big surprises I don’t see many prospects there. If we keep what we have and add Jones, Petit-Frere and Barnes that is at least a solid core.

    That's woefully short at LB. We signed 3 DT's and had 1 transfer in last year, but only 2 LB's last year and they are both in limbo. I don't see a CB on that list of DB's either, and we are so short there we had to play 2 true Freshmen last year.

    I know Trey Dean's cousin online. He's pretty sure he'll pull the trigger on the Gators.

    If we get 9 out of 10 of the guys you listed Mullen & Co. will have done a pretty darned good job, imo, especially if E. Jones and J. Copeland sign with UF.

    expected to sign early:

    RB - 2
    TE - 2
    LB - 1
    DB - 3
    OL - 1
    K - 1

    will have to see what happens and regroup Saturday

    I am curious out of the 9 that were suspended if they leave does that free up a scholly? What's the word on them?

    Last year's frosh class had 4 LBs in it (Miller, Houston, Smith & Brunsen). Miller & Huston were suspended, Smith had an injured knee, and I guess Brunsen (Shannon's choice), wasn't ready yet.

    Add Reese, and right now, that's 5 Frosh LBs on the team next fall (4 Redshirts).

    One DLine is about all this year's class needs, or at absolute most two, given that even if both Zuniga & Jefferson join Bryan, and neither Smith nor Desir-Jones rejoin the team, there are still 5 DTs and 5 DEs on the Roster (don't forget Big Zack Carter), and Grantham plays a 3/4.
