Default Football Recruiting numbers???

So how many will we be taking for this year's class? We've only gotten 10 which, last I saw, was tied for 2nd fewest inside the top 50. I know we have quality verbals but is anyone getting nervous about where we are going to get more? I know there are some strong leans and long way until Feb but why so little quantity? I don't remember being so far back by this time in the recruiting year.

This years class is going to be small only taking ~16. With Pinckney joining tomorrow, hopefully, that only leaves a couple more.

Looking at two more on the OL (Maybe Simpson plus one more)
One more at WR (Overton or bust)
One DB (multiple choices)
One DL (Pickney)
And one more backer (hopefully our recent decommit decides to recommit)

Still working a couple of oversign DL prospects

Thanks for the replies. I know that we will have a smaller class but did not know the actual numbers. And now that Rogers quit, we should have one more. It appears like we will get Pinkney today and are still trying to get Gary or Lawrence, both of whom would be oversign worthy for DL. Maybe Clayton at DE? And hopefully Overton at WR. Simpson would be good get at OL. Maybe get Smith back for LB. And it'd be great to turn S Smith from LSU. I heard we might be in the mix for Butler at S and possibly Mullen at CB. I am just anxious.

We only have 11 seniors so attrition was already built in to the numbers so you cannot add a spot each time someone leaves the program. Obviously if we have a mass exedous the numbers could change but not likely.

With all of the walk ons who now have scholarships, I thought Swinney wasn't going to expand the 16 class from the unplanned attrition. From memory I thought Hale was consistent about the class needing 15 or no more than 16 players.
