Just sitting here thinking of how big a class UGA will be able to sign next year. This is just going off of the numbers coming out of yesterdays class, and doesn't take into account any non-qualifiers.
2013 Class = 32
EE's counting toward 2012 class = 13
Players signed counting to 2013 class = 19
Potential EE's for 2014 = 6 (25 limit for 2013 - 19 players signed)
Potential players for 2014 class = 31
This would be provided that the 2014 class would also stay under the 85 total scholarship limit. With the attrition that has hit the Dawgs over the last few years, I don't think the 85 limit will be much of an issue. Could Richt possibly bring in another class of over 30 kids??
I'm pretty sure only 9 of the EEs count back to the 2012 class. Giving us 23 in this class assuming we don't take Toby Johnson.
That means we can back count 2 of the EEs next year. The total amount of EE we can have is a confusing number to me. It has to do with the 85 number and the amount of graduates at Xmas. I think.

Highly doubtful. We'll be up to 82 of 85 scholarships, without any more attrition. There are only 11 scholarship seniors graduating, with MAYBE 2 early draft entrees in Swann and Mitchell. That puts your initial number at 13 spots, with an additional 3 for unfilled spots, before attrition. Even if we had abnormally high attrition of around 10 due to transfers, grades, etc., that would leave us with 26 spots. I would say the class will be absolutely maxed at 26, and we could easily see a class of 18-20 if attrition isn't severe. There just won't be room under the 85 limit, without the most attrition we've ever seen in one year.

Yeah, I didn't take into account that not all of the EE's counted toward 2012. Definitely dealing with some fuzzy math when it comes to NCAA and SEC rules. Just ask Bama.
The 25, backcounting stuff really doesn't matter much. The only significant number is staying under the 85, 9 times out of 10 they can make the other number work. Based on the 85 number and who is knowingly departing, the most we'll be able to accept without a large amount of attrition is around 20. That number could be pushed as high as 25, but I doubt it based on our historical attrition.
