As we blend the 2009 roster (minus B. Smith / Graduates / Cone / Cissoko) with the 2010 incoming freshman (at 26) we have a current "roster" of 87.
The necessary attrition will come from either walk-on players that were on scholarship in 2009 (Kovacs and Leach) and/or 5th year seniors not retained by the staff (Sheridan, Patterson, Wright, Moundros).
Obviously, Ezeh, Mouton, Ferera, Schilling, Banks, and Dorrestein are coming back for the their 5th years andn will be retained.
So, with signing day approaching, and looking at the current roster... Do we want more than 1 more commitment (Parker or Knight or an OL, etc.) at the sacrifice of not giving scholarships to (currently) 2 and possibly more of the six mentioned above?
EDIT: This does not take into account any future transfers as none are known at this time (although you can assume at least 1 will happen before or after spring ball).
EDIT: Still at 87 without counting Cissoko
