I wouldn't look at rankings too much anymore. They take the total amount of commits, we not only had short time to recruit. We has less scholarships as well. The average score has ahead of 7 of the future AAC. Also the ranking on transfers isn't updated, our qb is 0 stars which had muliple p5s wanting.. thats not a 0 star guy, especially with fbs stats that he has. Along with all the oline that has started muliple games. Make those 3 star guys, we'll be in the upper half. In really a month to recruit
Unless it's changed lately you could carry 20 on your roster. The maximum number on the squad after the season starts is 105 and the maximum number of scholarship members is 85 meaning that 20 is the maximum number of walkons. I would guess that a PWO is guaranteed to be in that 20. You can actually start fall practice with 120 on the squad but it must be pared down to 105 by the start of the season.
