As for Jones, we need a DT in this class, so I hope he's part of this class. Doesn't help that he's a big time talent.

Most are still confident that Lewis will be a Gamecock.
We were only eligible to take 22 in the 2014 class......the total number in that class was 21.
Just for the sake of this discussion, let's assume Wideman and Thomas don't qualify. Including Sawyer not qualifying, that means our actual class is 18. So we would be allowed to count back as many as 4 EE from the 2015 class. We already know both Durant (assuming he makes it) and Clark are EE....that mean's we could have 2 more as EE.....this would potentially give us a class of 29.....25 signing LOI's and 4 EE. Maybe both Palmer and Lewis, because they are JUCO's, could end up being those 2.

By the way, don't totally discount DJ Jones....I'm sure Sawyer will work on him this fall.

That's what i'm thinking, Get both of them in Columbia together for a big game in the Brice...could make Jones think twice about the gamecocks.

it's sometimes hard to get JUCO's to Columbia during the season because they also play on Saturday and they go to school over 1,000 miles away......but I get your point.

yes they do....that's one of the reasons it's good to get them to start in January so they don't sign a LOI.

I thought that was the difference in Jucos they can actually sign their LOIs in December so they still count....a couple recent examples taken from the 247 Timelines

ex..12/18/2013: Abu Lamin signs letter of intent to South Carolina
12/19/2012: Ronnie Martin signs letter of intent to South Carolina Gamecocks

they don't count as part of the class because they start classes in Jan and not the next school year. in other words, Lamin is technically part of the 2013 class and not the 2014 class.

Maybe, but how does that apply? I, and everyone I think, understand we personally will not likely determine who does or does not sign and that we do not have a true crystal ball. Thus discussing what, when why and how those signing may or may not come about.(Also if I did have said Crystal ball I would use if for lots of other things besides who we sign like stocks 4instance, tho I would hook u guys up on occasion :))

Don't know the answer for sure. But if I had to guess, I would say that if they are 2 to play 2 guys and couldn't EE that they would not be takes. However, I have not seen it reported or heard of any known academic issues with Jones or Lewis.

Just read that Wes on TBS says in addition to Clark and Durant being EE, he thinks Fields is a possible EE along with Palmer, Lewis and Jones (if he picks us).
This is really good news.

How can we (potentially) have six EE's if we were only allowed to sign 22 in 2014?

This can't be, our coaching staff has no sound strategy to recruiting ;)

the rules only allow a maximum of 5 EE. the most we can have is 4 EE the way I counted. read my post above....we had 21 in last years's class....then sawyer, Thomas and Wideman (probably won't make it).....that leaves 18.....the most we could sign in 2014 was 22, so we have 4 EE spots available for 2015. those mentioned above are all possibilities to be EE, but not for sure......except Clark and Durant (if he can enroll in Jan 2015). If Smalls from 2014 doesn't qualify, then we would have 5 EE spots.

Now Smalls is an academic question mark? Good lord, how many of those can we have in one class?

You're saying that the rules only allow for a maximum of 5 EE to count back to the previous class....there are no rules for how many EE a program can bring in, regardless of whether they count back or not, correct? We could theoretically bring in a 25-man class of nothing but EEs - while they all couldn't count back, having them in the program early and participating in the spring camp is definitely optimal...

I've never heard of a maximum EE that could be brought in.....as far as I know, we could bring in 30 EE.....five if them count back and the other 25 count to the 2015 class.....this assumes the 2014 class ends up with only 17 qualifying out of 22.

Can't be a maximum EE. If you run out of left over spots you just got to the non-early spots. If the dude pays his only money to come here early than cool.
