The way I Cipher It Out.....
PSU HAS A BUNCH OF OFFERS TO GO OUT IMMEDIATELY
.PSU has 15 scholarships attributed to the 2012,class, and could have had 25. So that leaves up to 10 scholarships still available to the 2012 class, if the student can enroll in January. These would not count against the impending 15-scholarship limit imposed for 2013.
15 LIMIT IN 2013 CLASS
PSU now has 17 newcomers in this upcoming class, so, in order to keep within the proscribed limits of 15 scholarships for 2013, at least two need to enroll in January. I believe that at least two or three are committed to doing this. Anybody have a better account of the projected new students enrolling in January?
75 LIMIT TOTAL
PSU now has 72 'committed' scholarships, which allows three more scholarships to give to reach 75.
So, in order to take advantage of having 75 players on scholarship, PSU must sign another three players this month, and must have a minimum of five players enrolled in January.
ATTRITION PLUS LIONS TURNING INTO LAMBS
It might be a good practice to oversign by three or four to allow for normal attrition, not including the students who will transfer for whatever reasons.
So, should we expect another two, five, or ten signees in the next few days?
I suggest that the closer to 10, the better PSU will be.
For The Glory,
