Next year, we lose 5 seniors and 5 juniors (Ellington, Anderson, Quarles,
Clowney and Hampton)......could be more or less but this is just a guess.
Then assume we lose 4 through attrition, that leaves us with a maximum 2014
class of 15 (81-14= 67), then (82-67). I hope the math is right. Now list the positions, the number per position and players that will fill those spots. Try to be realistic.
Please look at the last 15 years and tell me the smallest class we have signed, the numbers always work out and we go through this every year, we will sign between 20 to 30 folks come signing day 2014. We have signed 33-23 people a year for the last 10 years. Great idea but the number should be 20-25 for starters.

This young man's father was a BEAST. From that time, everyone talked about Stephen Davis at Spartanburg, and Anthony Hunter was as good or better than Davis, just couldn't get into school! He was amazing, I grew up watching him, and he is one of the reasons I wanted to be a football player. I always looked forward to putting on the black and golf for Union High! Good luck to AJ

Here's the article that says we only get 22 per year with a max of 82.
This does not take into signing players for the last years class as we did with the EE's this year as well as, take for example the 25 limit when we signed more than 25 in 2007(31), 2003(28), 2009 (29), 2005 (28), 2011 (32)...... Once again the coaches work the numbers and they always workout.

Exactly. The only thing I was wrong about was about how many LOIs we can send out in 2014 and 2015. And even I'm apparently wrong about that too.

The article from the NCAA says we can only send out 22 LOIs in the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 academic calendar years. I was always under the impression that the academic year began in August when freshmen enroll. If that is not correct then we can only send out 22 LOIs this year and next year then be back at 25 for the 2015 class. Otherwise it is 25 LOIs this year, 22 next, and 22 after that.

But we are going to use all of our LOIs because we have to. It would be foolish to only sign 15 or so and then be way under the 82 cap (which is already reduced from 85).
