No it doesn't.
Say LSU has 20 seniors in the 85, and 11 underclassman declare for the draft. So you are down to 54 (85-31) but can only take 25. You can early enroll, but let's assume that the year before you took 23 so you can only back count 2. Means you can only take 27 this year so you have 4 empty scholarships (54+27=81).
Maybe we can "Saban" our way around this by having players "walk on" and then get scholarship???
Granted, this was a unique year and probably not going to be the norm, but when it does happen you lose out on filling those spots. Any thoughts?
