Default How many can we sign for 2015?

With the addition of new OL commit yesterday, we are at 25 now. How many can we sign total for 2015?

Doesn't the SEC now have a signing limit in place?

And there's still gotta be some big targets out there we are still in the mix for, how do we save room for them? Or will we?

I know the coaching staff has a plan, but this is the earliest we've ever loaded up like this, so it's all new to me.

Any help?

Default Re: How many can we sign for 2015?

It depends on how many EE we have. We can sign 25 LOI's plus the EE. So if we have 25 sign LOI's and 7 EE (for example), then our total class will be 32. The EE are counted back to 2014. The EE so far are Lewis, Durant, Palmer, Wideman, Smalls, Clark, Fields (maybe), and Alexander. This assumes Durant, Wideman and Smalls qualify for January 2015 enrollment and therefore can be counted back. I may be off 1 or 2......but this is pretty close. Bailey may have said he plans to enroll early as well.

As fans, we all need to just stop worrying over the numbers.

I know it's cliche but honestly they do all work out in the end.

Well we can sign about 30-31 if everybody makes it in. A couple more if we sign a few that we are expecting to be academic casualties and we are signing just to place which will probably be the case with 2-3. So basically expect about 4-5 more if we don't get a couple oversign worthy prospects and maybe a few more if we can get a couple of those oversign worthy players.

Would you say that if we were in this position last year, Deebo Samuel has the senior year he had at Chapman HS, do we make him an "over sign"? I'm asking this because a concern I have is that if the class would indeed become full and a rising HS senior has a monster year (maybe he was waiting his turn much like Dylan has), will we be forced to pass on him?

Deebo was actually not given an offer because of his academic situation, the coaches weren't waiting on his senior film to offer. Once his academics were cleared up we offered almost immediately so I would say he could have qualified as an oversign because our coaches absolutely loved him long before the offer. A couple of oversign candidates that come to mind this cycle would be Tyrek Cole and Juquan Johnson. Both are players we are not expected to end up with right now but if they end up wanting to be Gamecocks the coaching staff would not turn them down. Also I would not be shocked to see one or two players de-commit from us as the year goes on just because it is recruiting and minds change.

^^^This is the answer I was looking for.

Ok, so provided every is or can make it in, we have room to sign around 30-31. Good, that's what I needed to know.

Thanks.

Default Re: How many can we sign for 2015?

Not sure who the last 4, 5, or 6 recruits would be. Someone help me out with guys we might have a chance with and maybe a percentage.
Here's my guess:
N. Gilliam(60/40 with us leading over wake)?
Z. Bailey(50% with us and clemson)?
B. Sandifer(50% with us and florida)?
A. Huggins(less than 10% us with clemson and uga the favorites)?
A. Caban?
J. Johnson?

I believe with the commitment of Pellage, Gilliam is out.

But if I'm wrong someone feel free to correct me.

actually 33 is probably closer but the coaches may hold a spot or two for really good players that may not decide till late like Tyrek Cole.

don't forget to add Wideman and Smalls if they go prep and qualify, especially good if they are EE. I don't think Gilliam is a take if we get Bailey.....Huggins is a long shot. Davante Davis is a good DB. Add DJ Jones.....we are very much in the game with him.....best JUCO in the country.

I see in his thread that Gilliam is set to announce on the 15th and where coach Elliott said we would take him whenever he is ready to commit...It will be interesting to see what happens IF he wants to commit here and IF we are able to close the deal with Bailey and/or Sandifer.
Good point about Wideman and Smalls. I would think they would both commit to us again if they can qualify, especially early. DJ Jones is the guy I want the most of the remaining targets. Just need to get him to a game this season.

I hadn't seen that about Gilliam. Maybe the coaches are a little nervous about taking Sandifer because of potential academic issues. So we now have 26 (counting Sawyer)
Add best case:
Wideman, Smalls, Jones, Caban, 1 DB (probably D Davs), Bailey and Gilliam.....that would be 33.
