Was the guy a Juco?
dont see how we have room for stevens after we get RSJ
dont think we get mitchell, tho i think we are slowing down at LB because i suspect we get isaac savaiinaea and might push for sanders for midterm
think were pushing hard for Mackensie Alexander, he seems to like us a lot but he is all over the place. Well bring in Shaq Wiggins in Feb for an official.
yes. one who hadn't played in 2 years because of injury. but yeah, he got his offer pulled because of grades, not because of injury and aggy's unexpected success this season allowing them to go after better players.
Well you gotta look at it like this. If they expected him to be a an ee and he didn't get his grades you can't blame them for dropping him. All the guys they are counting back have to be ee. They ban only sign 25 in February. The rest have to be there early
Not to be critical, but what the student athletes who made life changing decisions in a pledge to a university, coach and team?
Georgia to many fans outside SEC has been the team that doesn't oversign.
Why are the Georgia scholly numbers so low or is it wishful thinking?
What school wouldn't do that?
Haha now you know why texas is so bad
The SEC changed the rule for every team. A&M is operating under the same rules as all the other SEC teams with regard to recruiting.
A team that did not sign a full class of 25 in a recruiting year is allowed to fill those unused spots in the following recruiting class with EEs. A team is only allowed to count back spots for the past year's recruiting class, not classes from 2, 3 or 4 years prior.
Each team still only has 85 scholarships so no matter the size of a recruiting class only 85 spots are available.
Since A&M only signed 19 players last recruiting class they can enroll 6 kids early and count them towards the 2012 class and still have 25 spots available for the 2013 class. A&M has 76 players currently on scholarship, 16 of which are seniors. That means there needs to be some attrition and/or kids who don't qualify because 7 out of the 2013 class don't currently have scholarship spots available.
Numbers work themselves out. Who GAF
so its interesting if someone esle does it. If Alabama does it SHAME ON YOU how dare u take all those kids u r cheating...... mmmhhhmm i see how it is.
What exactly do you feel is incorrect? I believe both starting tackles are expected to leave for the draft so that will open up two more spots. Are there other juniors expected to leave early? With only 6 spots available for early enrolles to occupy from the 2012 class, there must be some 2013 recruits who aren't expected to qualify academically.
A few other SEC teams signed less than 25 kids in 2012 and have the option of taking more than 25 this cycle.
UGA has something like 34 they could take. LSU could take as many as 29. Florida only had 22 in their 2011 class so they should be able to take 28 this year.
how, exactly, can you take more than 6 ee? you have your 25 for 2013, and the 6 left over from 2012 when you took 19.
here's how i see this class right now:
32 total right now.
cross 2 off - kohl is going mlb (especially after jm's season) and griffin isn't making his grades.
25 for 2013
6 early entry - i see 2 cc and 1 prep, who are the hs kids graduating early and coming in?
that leaves you at 30 total, w/ one spot left.
the only way i can see being able to add more than 6 ee, is if some of the 2012 class were ee and backcounted to 2011, but i don't recall that and don't have the energy to go looking for it.
4 of there guys from last year were ee thus they count towards the 2011 class then 1 guy didn't make so that makes 13 signees last year. So that gives them 12 to count back this year. So that's 37. Then one or 2 may not make it to atm so they could get someone else and sign and place the other guys. Do your research before just posting how you feel that's how crap gets started between you and aggy fans.
I don't see what the big deal is. Y'all are just taking advantage of the rules that were set in place by the sec and from having a great season and some people don't wanna see y'all come up and be a legitimate thread. I for one would like for y'all to not take anymore people so we can get tommy sanders
Naw he wants to play sec ball
We had a lot of attrition in the 2011 "dream team class" (did not qualify, dismissal from team for arrests, left for seeking pt, etc.). Last years class we had 18 (missed on 3-4 on signing day) in which 2 did not qualify, so really only 16. I want to say the past 2 years over 10 walkons received schollys. We are very thin compared to many in our league.
You can count on though that on signing day we will not be signing any more than what will bring us to 85.
Every signee can be an Early Enrollee. You would just backcount the appropriate number towards the previous class.
But you cannot go over the 85 total scholarship limit. I think it has to be down to 85 by the end of spring?
It's not the 85 number. It's how certain programs get down to that number.
i CLEARLY said i didn't know about last year's class re: ee and asked a simple and fair question. gfy.
also, your math sucks, professor walmart.
Damn skippy. I definitely would have yanked that schollie as well.
Sumlin is doing an outstanding job. There are several more commits I would like to see him trap door and I hope he does. I love that he can get away with it and recruits are still calling him up to commit.
It's great to be an A&M fan right now.
how about you actually contribute something to the thread - like who the early enrollees are going to be.
Does it matter? Really?
At the end of the day Sumlin will do whatever he feels like.
I also like the idea of him taking commits just to keep them from going to other schools. Mack was notorious for that back when he actually had something to sell.
Linear Algebra Mississippi State style.
