Wait, where is the updated one? All of these still have Pittman on the roster.
Is another transfer or two looming now that Spring Quarter is wrapping up?
Steve, Pittman is gone.

We may have lost the battle......but not the war.
Time for an update?
I piss excellence.
I updated this morning, it may be moot if Elumeanor commits today. But here is the update.
What about the Australian punter, Johnston?
That's a good question ... I'm a little foggy on him. He committed but the school has not added him doesn't seem like he has enrolled yet. I will ask about him and where that stands. My assumption is he could be the 24th freshman for this year, which would erase another spot for 2014.
A couple of other guys who could factor here:
DL Chris Rock, transfer from Michigan is a walk-on now but could get a scholarship
WR Jeff Greene, transfer from Georgia Tech, sitting out this year and walking on for now, but could also get a scholarship down the line.
The aussie is on campus and working out with the team. He is rooming with a former player of mine who is a perferred walk on.
Even with Johnston, I'm counting 81 on the current roster. Is this correct? If so, we only need an attrition of 7 to get to 22 commits and a total of 82..... Minus Roby & possibly Shazier we only need 5.
Yes, told by someone at OSU that Johnston is in and all good.
So that makes 24 freshmen to go with 14 seniors, 17 juniors, 19 sophs, 7 RS freshmen, that's a total of 81.
They lose 14, so that makes just 15 available spots with 14 verbals. They have 1 spot left. Everybody assumes they will end up right around 20, though.
I think Roby is a good bet to go, not as sure about Shazier or Miller though. That means they would need 4 others to leave.
I have redone the sheet so it is updated up to the minute

Thanks Steve. If people think Meyer is going to start 'cutting' or ordering transfers, they are crazy. Jordan Hall was welcomed back and Jamie Wood was allowed to stay on scholarship despite the very high odds that he is physically incapable of playing.
I think there will be a few more transfers and an early departure or two to get at or above 20 but it won't be because of SEC west style tactics.
Exactly. That's why I doubt we even get to 20. IMO we've only got three or four more commits end then urban is going to have to say good bye to some damn good prospects.
