There were 27 seniors on the Warriors’ 2011 roster, of which 21 were on football scholarship.
But that does not mean the Warriors will have 21 initial scholarships to offer. Some already are reserved for grayshirts. A couple might be reserved for players on the roster. For instance, quarterback Stump Godfrey did not receive a release after transferring from New Mexico. He is not eligible to receive a scholarship until the end of UH’s second summer session in August. There might be flexibility depending on the academic and medical situations of some players.
But as of this morning, it was estimated the Warriors will have between 11 and 14 initial scholarships to offer.
Dec. 21 is the first day mid-year transfers may sign letter of intent. (It was incorrectly reported this Wednesday was the mid-year signing day.) Feb. 1 is the first day of the signing period for high school seniors and other JC transfers.
