We only have 13 commits. Speculation: this might end up being a small class because the transfers and returning super seniors might be soaking up some potential scholarships. Could be a school-imposed budgetary limit on total number of full football scholarships (even if NCAA limit, factoring in COVID extra year, is theoretically higher). Just don’t know.Class is currently ranked #10 in the B1G, #38 in the country and continuing to drop. Will probably be around 50 on signing day. Not elite.
Or, because this is an odd year, PJ might be holding some spots for highly-rated players who find, near signing date, that their Ohio State, etc., offers aren’t commitable. The volume of transfer portal activity plus super seniors returning this year might tax the scholarship ability of some (maybe many) top teams to take a full complement of 25 recruits from HS. I think some good recruits who are holding out to the end might, in this very unconventional year, find out near signing date that the top teams are “sold out,” and have to start looking at the next tier.
Really would like to know what the upper limit of HS recruits that PJ can take this year. I assume it is less than the NCAA nominal limit if 25.
