Only five guys are new recruits. The others are current commits who want to meet the new coaching staff. The 3-star TE who is committed to Florida is an interesting one though. Will be interesting to see what happens after this week and next. I'm sure more recruits will be added to next week's schedule. I am surprised that Drew doesn't have a handle on exactly how many scholarships are being used and how many are available. Not that I'm complaining, I know it's been a crazy two weeks for him.

RE: Champlin: UAB set for big recruiting weekend under new head coach Bill Clark
The number of football scholarships available is tricky since they don't have to officially come to campus until the Fall(even though Summer is the norm). A lots of things can happen up until then - transfers, guys quitting football, etc. In many cases you don't know exact numbers until Summer. We had 15 guys recognized as Srs at the last game, but, as Drew has said, some may not have been on scholarship. If only those guys leave and they were all on scholly we would probably have only those 15 available. If some leave, some Feb 5 signees don't qualify, some of the 15 srs are not on scholly, etc - these all affect that number. I suspect we'll oversign and let things sort themselves out...

It is probably best that we get as many visiting as we can over the next 2 weekends. We may pick up a few new commits & may lose 1 or 2.

I think it's a fair assumption that we've got approx. 25 +/- available w/ some already being spoken for by the JUCO's enrolled/current commits being honored. There might be a few players on roster that are "advised" by the new staff that they should look elsewhere after staff evaluations in the coming weeks which would free up more slots.

Looks like he is getting to work quickly. Glad to see all those commits still with interest and most haven't opened up there recruiting. That means the previous staff did a good job selling the whole package (the school, city, etc) besides just playing football for those specific coaches.

On another topic, anybody see anything about who he has hired, I don't expect a full staff yet, but if we could get a list of who so far is on board that would be good.

Everybody off his JSU staff but Grass (OC) and Ogle (RBs, I think).

I think the only open position may be the OC.
That is assuming that none of the other coaches would be moved up to OC.
Even that assumption may be wrong.
It is possible that one of the assistants is familiar with the offense & could oversee it.

That might be a pretty big jump though for one of the assistants from around $40,000 to over $150,000 or so.
