During his press conference last week, Urban said that he thought he would accept 4-5 more verbals. The problem with that statement is that "we" the public may not have a complete understanding of who is committed and who has not. There are several players out there that are consider changing their commitments which makes is more probable that there are silent verbals out there.
Also, by "reducing" the number of players Urban may be willing to take, it increases the urgentcy of the remaining players to make a decision if Ohio State is their leader.
Here's how I see it.
We KNOW we have 4 schollies available now (see attached chart).
We COULD gain up to 7 other schollies depending on how things go with (TY, Carter, Brown, Whiting, Moore, Durham, Smith and Hagan).
We MIGHT also gain 3 offered/committed schollies to qualification or change of mind (Bogard, Southward, Lewis).
I also know of 15 targets remaining. 3 Playmakers, 4 OL (I exclude Kozan since Meyer has never called him), 4 LBs, 2 CB and 2 S. (I also exclude Winston because he is not seriously looking at OSU.)
Edit: I would not be surprised if we take 7-8 more in the '12 class. The 4-5 Meyer mentioned plus replacements for any lost '12 commits or heavy attrition at one position.

You must live and die with Bucknuts.
Berry Griffin Cash and Gambrell are GONE Take it to the Bank!
We are now at 78 Scholorships and can only take 4 more schlorships.
Urban has to cut 4 or 5 more to get who he wants.
You rookies have to listen closely to what these Riverboat Gamblers say and when they say it to get their real message.
Look for message to come out soon about Williams Carter Brown Moore and another to leave the team as Urban will sign his
28 recruits as that is the maximum number he is allowed to sign under ther new BlG rules and he is not even going to press the issue his first year.
Anymore than that will go towards next years 2013 class.

Use the LSU actual signings calculator:
30+29+28+32 = 85.
