We all watched in wonder as UNC signed 29 kids with only 12 graduating seniors last year.
Good article on oversigning:
Coaches who do it generally say that it works if you let the kid know what is going on. Greyshirts are the major method used.
Talks about how Saban did it.
Good quote from the article:
Georgia coach Mark Richt refuses to oversign for two reasons. First, he wouldn't want to run out of scholarships for qualified players. Second, he would not want to run off current players who have eligibility remaining to keep the Bulldogs under the 85-scholarship limit. "We could always get into a situation where we oversign, but there's no way I could look at a kid and his parents and say, 'We had some room, but now we really don't.' I just think you have to be careful," Richt told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Signing Day. "I don't want to oversign, then tell one of the kids we've already got, 'You've got no value to us' and toss him aside. I'm not going to do that."
