    And now I have dropped Jordan.

    Wanted him to stay as much as anyone. Not only a great talent, but we now have 11 scholarship OL on the roster. I don't recall ever seeing the number that low.

    We have more LB and WR than OL.

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    Yeah I just posted something in the ‘19 recruiting thread about going after that big Juco kid from England. Need some OL depth pronto.

    Ohio State Scholarship Count: Where The Buckeyes Stand

    January is a month of transition in the college football world. As one group of players is leaving every FBS program, another is entering.

    Inside the Woody Hayes Athletic Center, draft-eligible players have until January 15 to decide whether they will return for another year or declare themselves eligible for the NFL Draft.

    And in high schools across the country, talented seniors are deciding whether to sign with the Buckeyes on National Signing Day, February 6.

    It’s a delicate balancing act, because the Buckeyes have to be at no more than 85 scholarship players on campus by the start of fall camp.

    Between now and then, the NFL players will leave and others will transfer. Ryan Day’s staff will bring new recruits, and possibly transfers in as well.

    But by the time fall camp opens, the numbers have to work out to 85.

    After Dwayne Haskins, Michael Jordan, Mike Weber, and Dre’Mont Jones declared themselves eligible for the NFL Draft and Justin Fields officially joined the program, the Buckeyes stand at 87 scholarship players.

    Others, like Kendall Sheffield, Damon Arnette, and K.J. Hill still have to announce whether they are coming back.

    Offensive line prospect Doug Nester is verbally committed for 2019, but has not signed his Letter of Intent, so he’s not included in that number.

    My guess on why my number of 84 is lower than the 87 cited above is that their number includes guys like Saunders, walk-ons who were granted scholarships. I never worry about those because 1) they are year by year and can always be dropped and 2) I never know who has been granted such scholarships.

    I think you’re also missing the TE Hamilton Fr.

    I have checked both the OSU official roster and the Scout roster and all 86 of the players in this table are included. Anybody know who is not on scholarship?

    I would guessed O'Shaughnessey might greyshirt, but since classes have started so has his eligibility clock.

    Just updated the scholarship breakdown for next season. Redshirts were based on the "snap counts" from Eleven Warriors.

    By my count we have 91 players coming in to next season. Giving Siebert a grayshirt takes it to 90, but still some attrition that needs to take place. Cooper and Hilliard are unusual as holdover seniors. There is also an unusual balance among the Senior, Junior and Sophomore classes.

    Feedback on any errors always appreciated.

    Looks like you have Craig Young at LB and DB

    Fixed it - thanks.

    The number is now 89 or 90 depending on Siebert. Very manageable.

    Is it certain that O’Shaugnessy is on scholarship? He’s not listed on Elevenwarriors chart. He’s not listed on any 247sports class charts. If Ohio State announced him as having signed a LOI or announced him on scholarship I missed it. I’m not it wasn’t announced, I’m just saying if it was I don’t remember it. By my count when Woidke went on scholarship that put them at 85. If O’Shaugnessy was on scholarship Woidke would have made it 86.

    He was on an early OSU roster from the official site. But that may have been before classes started. That would make him a grey shirt- which is what I originally anticipated.

    Maybe we could have squeezed Gibbs in afterall. Have to think we have two upperclass DBs about to be off the team.

    Just sayin': According to the above article (counting Trey Sermon), the Buckeyes' scholarship situation, though, will need to be addressed as they now sit at 87 scholarship players, two over the limit.

    Of all the things that might engender doubt in me regarding Coach Day and his assistants, the ability to count to 85 is not among them.
