According to this thread:
we can oversign by 3 and take 28 players total in the 2010 class, and we DON'T have to lose 3 of them by August, as long as 3 of them are early enrollees.
So if that's the case, then do we even mess with non-qualifiers? When we thought we could take 28 but we had to lose 3, it didn't seem that big of a deal to sign non-qualifiers (which Kinard and Drake are rumored to be) since they would just be 2 of the 3 guys we'd need to cut out of the class.
But now that we CAN take 28 and keep every single one of them on the squad, do we even take a chance that these kids won't qualify? Why not take 28 players that we're sure can qualify for the fall?
