    Arkansas Football Committments

    Has anyone noticed that according to Rivals, Arkansas now has 31 players committed (2 are early signees)? I know nothing is official until National Signing Day, but something doesn't seem right with those numbers. Plus, they are still recruiting.....

    You can sign as many as you want, as long as you make room for them. There seems to be a myth out there that you can only sign a certain number, when that's not the case.

    Is Ron Prince their new recruiting coordinator? I think he blieves in over extending. That way you can tell all your commitments that they are on the "sign before we run out of schollies" plan.

    Re: Arkansas Football Committments

    Remember, this is Bobby Petrinos first real class at Arkansas - i'm guessing there will be players that are not retained from last years squad or told to look elsewhere.

    After all - he's a lot like Chizik - SNAKE!!!!!

    Actually he turned his back on the Falcons much like Chizik did.....too funny!!!!!

    You can sign as many as you want, but can only hand out 25 new schollies per year.

    Correct, the limit is on actual scholarships granted, not LOI's. Most coaches are honorable and only go over on LOI's if there is an almost sure chance that someone will not qualify. Then there are the Ron Prince types.

    There is a limit of 85 total scholarships, and you cannot exceed 25 annually.

    Re: Arkansas Football Committments

    They are planning on some players not qualifying, and pulling an offer or 2 for greyshirts or preferred walk-ons. They have a top 15 class last I heard, so although there are going to be some issues, whoever makes it is going to be pretty darn good. Didn't Mac once have 30 commits?

    Re: Arkansas Football Committments

    In basketball you used to only be able to do 5 in 1 year and 8 in 2 years. The Freshman to NBA kids took that rule away.

    In football it's 85 total and 25 a year.
