Just bringing this to the top. The signing period is from 11/11-11/18. We have Mathews with one open spot left if I have this right. Any ideas on who we go after?

We have two open scholarships. We have the two seniors leaving and Buggs has already left.

That's correct. I forgot about JB.

We'll have 3 scholarships available next year, right? There's still a scholarship available this year (there are 12 scholarship players listed) and 2 more become available next year when Pierre and Gasperini leave.

Edit: Maybe that's what you are saying.

Don't be so sure about that. It's been posted that he is injured and in school.

It's also possible (may have already been decided but I don't recall) that this season will not count against eligibility. Not sure how that would play out with regards to the 13 scholarship limit.

He's not listed on the umassathletic.com men's basketball roster

^ I understand that. Does that mean that it's 100% that he does not reappear next year?

I dunno. I like the guy but he did put his name in the transfer portal.

With this year technically not counting we could have no scholarships left if cp and gasperini decide they want to stay

The unanswered question is "how many scholarships are allowed if seniors decide to stay an extra year?" Is it 13 plus the returning seniors or is it capped at 13?

If this happened it could be devastating for all the HS seniors across the country trying to get into college.

To see what happens in spades, check out our lax roster right now. With seniors allowed to return and frosh now listed, we have 50 guys!

Good news, I think.
Seniors will be permitted to return next year and not count against a sport's roster or scholarship limits. Underclassmen will get access to a waiver they can use to extend their careers, but beyond the 2021-22 academic year, those athletes will count against scholarship and roster limits.Aug 21, 2020
