Nebraska now hosting 3rd GA transfer in an OL. Saw a tweet that they could be at 100 players on scholarship by the end of the weekend. They would need 15 to be dropped from scholarship to get to 85. How does this work? Can they be over 85 during offseason? Difficult conversations going on to get 15 kids to leave.

You can definitely be over in the off season (we currently are) and I think you can be over for spring ball but I am not sure what the date is where it has to be back to 85.

I believe the date is by fall in person full camp roster, where you have to be at the 85 scholarship roster limit. I could be wrong about that, but I thought this is what it used to be.

Pretty sure that is right. There is another round of transfer portal activity after spring ball and then it seems like teams finalize their rosters for the fall and get back down to the scholarship limit before the start of camp.

I keep hearing that some might get NIL deals to keep them on the team as “walk-ons”. Wonder how that all shakes out and if some may already knew that when committing?

This has become very common with NIL. Scholarship limits have essentially become irrelevant.
