Unofficial Scholarship Breakdown: Three under

Untitled

With Signing Day over and done with and the beginning of spring ball less then a month away it's time to take a look at how Florida stands on the scholarship front.

The big news this time around is the lack of big news.

Heading into his third year as Florida's head coach, it appears as though Will Muschamp finally has his plan in place for the most part, thus cutting down on huge amounts of turnover in the roster.

In the last update 12 different players were taken off the scholarship breakdown (Stephen Alli, Willie Bailey, Jacoby Brissett, Matt Elam, Sherrif Floyd, Jelani Jenkins, Chris Johnson, Kendrick Johnson, Matt Patchan, Jordan Reed, Tommy Jordan and De'Ante Saunders) due to transfer, early graduation, early entry to the NFL and medical hardship.

In this update, only Jessamen Dunker has been removed from the list of scholarship players.

The breakdown below shows that Florida currently stands with 82 players on scholarship, three under the NCAA maximum of 85.

As far as football is concerned, it is the most stocked the roster has been during the Muschamp era at Florida. During his first season, he was 10-12 players under the limit.

As for recruiting, as it stands now, Florida has the three open scholarships to go with 12 scholarship seniors. That is a baseline class of 15. It is all but a given, unless they fall flat on their face or are injured, that Florida will lose at least two juniors to the NFL. That puts the class size at 17 before attrition sets in - and it always dose.

Therefore, with just normal attrition, Florida is looking at a signing a class in the 21-23 range.

Notes: Clark & Ferris are former walk-ons who were awarded scholarships and are listed below. The late addition quarterback Chris Wilkes is an invited walk-on, thus not listed below. Brad Phillips may have been awarded a scholarship, but as a senior, it won't change the numbers goig forward.
