So all these scholarship kids that are in the portal, don't we immediately get that scholarship back once he leaves school?
In this case, if Anoma leaves at the end of the semester Bama has an open scholarship. What do you do with an open slot in May? You're looking at being able to add a JUCO player or give a walk-on a scholarship along with any player that's in the portal.So we get 2 more scholarships even if they are finishing out their classes?

But there's where it gets sticky. If a school signed 25 between the two signing dates they won't have room to add another initial in May. Even though the team may be at 84 with one spot open, they are at their limit at 25.
Sign 26 and take the penalty of losing two off of the next class.
Undersign in December and February in anticipation of a player leaving so you'll have another initial.
Lose a scholarshipped position for that season.
If a Jr declares, the team is still limited to the 25 for the class. That one is "caught up" in December if they get a guy who signs early and is an early enrollee as well. How that loop hole is spelled out is still a little lost on me. I say it is caught up by what they are doing this season with two going a blue-shirt route and other counting against what was left over from the last class.Shouldn't it be handled the same as if a Junior declared for the NFL? They are declaring for the transfer and unless they qualify for the "special circumstances much like we took advantage of with the 5*LBer from Washington last season, both situations should add to the total 25.
I had heard from a buddy he had a meeting with Coach, so it sounds good to be him. Plus Terry said that as well.
