This Years team’s total scholarships going into next year= 64
This leaves us with 21 total scholarships for the 2013 Class
Which means considering the status quo we have 5 scholarships left to give
Per this website (Joe Powell was kicked off & Londell Taylor flunked out of school)

P.L. Lindley flunked out?
Thanks for the breakdown. Had not read about P.L. Lindley.
Sorry Londell Taylor not P.L. Lindley. My apologies to P.L. Lindley. That brings us to 64 scholarships not 63. I'll edit it
Missing Jack Steed.
In the words of James Hale: "Its a fluid situation" ......haha. jk... but seriously might get good idea until after the bowl game.

James, Is Danzel Williams still on the team? Boomer!
Danzelle is gone, he still wants to play RB, that won't be at OU. When he switched back to DB he felt he was too far behind.
OU originally wanted him at CB, but he wanted to start out at RB, if he had listened to the coaches, he might be in the mix for playing time next season?
I thought he looked good at RB during spring practice? OU is just so deep at RB. Can't wait to see Ross next year!
Hughes is now at OT and Grissom is back at DE.
what about jazz reynolds and the other cat........trey franks
What is the OPTIMUM breakdown of a team's position profile?
I know some are different based on style. We obviously need more WRs and skill guys whereas Bama only needs 4 bowling ball RBs and the rest linemen. 4 OTs, 4 OGs & 3 Centers seems shallow to me. In comparison our Dline looks pretty deep. Deeper at least.
linemen seem to have more turnover. thats what i'd be trying to get.
They are counted as WRs
Thanks for breaking this down. Couple of thoughts...
-What happened to all of the kickers we had on scholly?
-Seems like we have more LBs than we need. Is there a superstar in the lot?
-All positions will look sort of thin with the number of WRs that we have to have for our offense
-Need 16-18 OL; this area is still hurting the most I believe. Need a couple of big tackles
-Now dbs and safetys seem a little thin (9). If we go to 6 dbs that leaves only 3 on the bench? (Outside of who we sign, they'll be redshirted anyway). JUCO here too?
Playing golf, getting ready to play golf, or just finished playing or practicing on the range.
Franks moved to Safety.
Did anyone see Danzel run in high school? My dad saw him play and thought he might have been our best RB. My dad said he looked quicker and more illusive than Williams. Also, I loved his recruiting videos. But he's gone and I have moved on.
Note: He is still listed on the OU roster.
23- Williams, Danzel- 5-8- 189- DB- RS FR- Arlington, Texas (James Martin HS)
Looking at this list made me think....Mike is going to have his work cut out for him. He "may" lose his entire secondary if Jefferson and Colvin leave early. He will have lost virtually his entire D line minus Chuka. Josh will also have a tough task to groom a QB, but it will easier to develop Bell in many ways than an entire D. I wouldn't want to be Mike over the next year. I believe he can do it, but not without a lot of stress.
Trey Franks left school, didn't he?
I thought Trey Franks was now a DB?
I also thought Danzelle looked very good at running back, he looked awesome in practice vidio's. I guess he felt lost moving over to DB?
