Recruit class will be 13 plus PWOs that staff gets.
Returning roster 66.
5th 2 ( TBD)
Based on PT and impact 5 stood out
Mayes,Ricotilli,Brags,Brisker and Mish.
Of the returning 26 a total of 11 were hits. The rest misses. Caveat not all misses are staff’s fault. 7 lost extensive time due to injury.(ie Christiano Harris McCloskey et al)
Others specifically LBs lost position as D went from 4 to 3 to 2 LBsets.
Jones and Kelsey eligible for 5th. Both have shown flashes but lost major time to injury.
By position all but DL have depth. DL including WO and LBs moved to DL has 10 for 4 slots.
A factor for our short roster may be Andy’s decision to offer more full rides to current frosh and verbals. We up talent level ( theoreti ally) but lower depth. Realize that last 15 or so on roster are squad players for practice bodies( who are important as we learned s few yrs ago with too few healthy bodies for contact practices)
Certainly a risk by Andy that I hope works out.
We’ll have a better idea come 12/20 as verbals become commits.
