I believe the NCAA only allows 5 signees per year, doesn’t it? How do they replace that many players in one recruiting class?
We have 8 freshmen on scholarship, and we know based on the size of the incoming class that at least one of them will be asked to leave.
Worst case is replacing 7 people. If you replace 7 with 5, you are back down to 11 scholarship players, which is what we have now.
Likelier scenario, based on general and Utah-specific trends, is that others will transfer before then.
