I haven't seen anything posted on this, so excuse me if I am late. This is from SS at 24/7. I know there will be plenty of questions on how many signatures LSU can take this year and how scholarships can count back to past signing classes. Well here is your answer...
"The NCAA has changed its rule for counting back on scholarships effective this year. The 85 number no longer is a factor. The only number that matters is the number of initial counters. LSU had 21 in 2012 -- four below the minimum. Therefore, LSU will be able to have four players count back to the 2012 limit from the 2013 class.
For example. if LSU would bring six early enrollees to school in January, four could count back to 2012. Two would could to the 2013 number. LSU could still sign 23 players in February who would count to 2013. So, essentially, LSU can bring in 29 players in the 2013 class."
The 85 man scholarship limit is still imposed so attrition must occur when teams over sign.
