I’ve been keeping up with a list that Larry posted a few weeks back...with Halls retirement and NSD additions this is what I’ve got:

2019 Total Scholarships (88)

2019 Seniors (13) Bituli, Buchanan, Byrd, Callaway, Fils-aime, Gooden, Jennings, Johnson, Kirkland, Lovingood, Taylor, Warrior, Wood-Anderson

2019 Juniors (25) Allen, Blakely, Bumphus, Butler, Chandler, Cimaglia, George Jr, Guarantano, Ignont, Jackson, Johnson, Johnson, Johnson, Jordan, Kennedy, Locklear, Middleton, Murphy, Niehaus, Palmer, Pope, Reid, Shamburger, Smith, Tatum

2019 Sophomore (20) Bailey, Banks, Bennett, Brooks, Brown, Calbert, Carvin, Crosby, Fant, Flowers, Gray, Gibbs, Jones, Labruzza, Mincey, Page, Solomon, Taylor, Thompson, Williams

2019 Freshman (30) Akporoghene, Beasley, Brown, Burrell, Crouch, Davis, Emerson, Fields, Garland, Gray, Harris, Harris, Harrison, Keyton, Lampley, Lane, Lowe, Maurer, McBride, McCullough, Means, Morris, Peterson, Shrout, Simmons, Solomon, Tillman, To’oto’o, Warren, Wright

This of course assumes that everyone in the transfer portal actually transfers...is there anything I’ve missed?

So were two over if everyone is eligible this fall right now. Most think Smith want play if that happens one more guy to get to the 85 limit.

I'm pretty sure I read that once you enter the portal your previous school is no longer obligated to honor your scholarship

Nice job OP!

Tell me if I'm wrong but looks like a fairly weak senior class!?!?
Bituli, Kirkland, Taylor, Jennings ,Callaway, Warrior, Jordan and Woods Anderson are solid in my opinion. 2nd year in the system with a few upgrade in coaches That's a small class but 8 of 13 will or could help the cause with injury free and great off season S&C.. We shall see.

If we are at 87 and there are two Blue Shirts (Harris, Solomon) coming in August, to be at 85 we need to lose 4 more players beyond those in the portal.
NEVERMIND - MY READING COMPREHENSION FAILED TO SEE BOTH MEN ON YOUR LIST...

I have 92, but I haven’t figured out where we’re off.

I thought Gibbs was going to be a junior? I know Kennedy is a senior.

Are you counting the guys in the transfer portal? I’ve taken them off the list under the assumption that they won’t be back
I also was counting Austin Smith. Take him off, I’m down to 90.

I’m also counting Joe Doyle because I assume the starting punter will get a scholarship. So now I’m only 2 off from you.

I predict another 5-6 players will transfer or quit football at end of semester. We will have a couple spots open for PWO to show out.

Weak? Those are 5 star (heart) champions of life! Seriously this why Lyle couldn’t make it here. Recruit over these guys for 3 years and always have a younger, less developed team than even Vandy, Mizz, and SC.

That’s probably a good assumption...He definitely deserves it IMO...and I think they’ll be at least a spot available for him if not more after spring practice...

If you’re interested...check the transfer portal on 247 and also check the “retired” OL (Antonutti, Brooks and Hall) to make sure...I bet the two we’re off are in those groups somewhere

Reading this list, a couple of things came to mind:
-I didn't think Banks played enough games to burn his redshirt. Should he still be considered a Freshman? I could be wrong. Anybody know.
-As the team is doing off season strength and conditioning, Kessling also practicing Akporoghene , To’oto’o
-and...

Ut sports site is showing that Banks played in 11 games. He has rushing stats in 6 games.

This is a Strong group by recent standards.
While short on quantity I think there’s good quality on that senior list...I think several of them could be legit threats this year...

I don’t mean to beat a dead horse but that sophomore class is pretty bad...if you take out the true sophomores, transfers and JUCO transfers it’s flat out horrid with the exception of maybe Bennett
