Where do the scholarship numbers stand right now? (UPDATED: 12/11)

With the 2021 season now over, the Washington 2022 recruitment category is beginning to take shape. But that’s only part of the story, mainly because a whole new crew is running the ship.

Under the leadership of < a href = "// 247sports.com/Coach/Jimmy-Lake-1600" target = "_ blank"> Jimmy Lake , following the scheme originally laid out by Chris Petersen , the strategy the Husky used meant that they would try to shut out all the possibilities leading up to day one, get them all to sign on day one, and then could move forward toward building the band for the next year.

It was fair to expect that Lake would use a similar strategy for his first full signing row, but with some odds, they either take up their entire allotted time or enjoy the process to the point where they don’t sign until the usual signing period which was in February.

Well, you can kind of throw a lot of that out the window, but not because Lake changed his plans. Lake is no longer Washington’s head coach, so Kalen DeBoer He’s now trying his best to salvage the 2021 enlistment class with some late hits for those hoping to sign mid-year, and then a crazy rush to fill in the rest of the class during the regular signing period after pressing those. There are those who did not sign with the school in December.

Here are the odds we expect to sign with Washington next Wednesday during the first day of the mid-year signing period. This period continues until the end of Friday.

There is also only one player in the recruitment category 2022 already registered, RB Emeka Megawa .

There is also an annual limit of 25, but it will be within that number for this particular course. But the overall figure of 85 is always a different story. This is obviously a prime number and takes into account those who have graduated or have exhausted their eligibility, who are expected to become professionals, who have applied or are planning to submit their names to the transfer portal, those who have opted out due to coronavirus or have had to retire, or those who have never arrived To campus for personal reasons.

There is also another twist in the tail that affects the numbers. Since eligibility has been pending for 2020, this means that all FBS programs may have numbers in excess of 85 students up to the number of scholarship applicants currently on their official list for the 2021 season. If we include the signatories on the site for 2022 to those who are expected to return for an additional season One (and we’ve included everyone at this point so news dictates otherwise), here are the raw numbers for each site individually:

QB – 2
RB – 6
WR – 8
TE – 6
OL – 14
DL – 9
LB – 11
DB – 16
Special Teams – 3

So, 36 players in attack, 36 in defense and 3 specialists. This adds up to 75 & nbsp; Total players , including two players who joined UW before fall camp ( Giles Jackson And < b> Davon Banks ). As a freshman, Banks joined the rest of the LEAP freshmen.

All things being equal, the UW diminishing number is currently at 0. This means that they don’t need anyone else to leave the program so they can sign players during their next mid-year signing period. With total scholarships at & nbsp; 75 , this means that Washington can subscribe to & nbsp; 10 players next Wednesday. At the moment, we expect Washington to sign with four Early signing period players: Jeremiah Bernard , Ryan Otton < / b> And Parker Brailsford And Denzel Boston . although Vega Ioane And Lance Holtzclaw She remains verbally committed to Washington, and they will wait to log in in February.

Obviously, this number may change next Wednesday depending on the official visits currently taking place. But the Husky family cannot sign more than 10 recruits on Wednesday unless the others currently on the list announce their intentions to move forward.

Here’s a reasonable look at the players we expect to move after the 2021 season, or who were on the 2021 roster but have already moved on.

QB Patrick O’Brien *

RB Sean McGraw *, Kamari Pleasant *

WR no thing

TE Cade Otton

OL Luke Wattenberg *, Jaxson Kirkland , Henry Bainivalu & nbsp;

DL no thing

LB Ryan Bowman * , MJ Tafisi , Cooper McDonald

DB Trent McDuffie , Kyler Gordon , Brendan Radley Hills

P Race Porter *

So this “reasonable” appearance made the UW lose 14 players (including six for graduation), but it’s still a good idea to consider the roster as a rough sketch. More players are sure to hit the transfer gate now that the NCAA has allowed one free “pass” to transfer with instant eligibility. And some of the players on the above list may decide to stay, as many did last season. But some players will want to take their NFL shot, look for more playing time, some will want to get closer to home, etc… It will work in Washington’s best interest as well, as other players will want to join the Huskies for such reasons.

What you’ll see below is the current look of the 2021 season slate as it is. We will update this story after the mid-year signing period to add these players to the overall numbers.
