Tracking the classes, LOI day edition

With Washington’s activity on LOI day appearing done, time again to review the classes.
I posted this a few days ago but I’ll update it with today’s official additions.
I’ll break it down by eligibility while noting exceptions. This is just for scholarship players so walk-ons are not included. Position is the position they were listed at when last season ended, other than newcomers or those known to be making a switch.

COMMENT — Teams are allowed 85 on scholarship at one time, but the guys who signed today aren’t considered on scholarship until they enroll and apparently only Boyce will enroll before fall, so there is some time to work this out. The obvious question is how. I think the answer is basically that they are just assuming there will be some attrition, because there always is. Not all the JC guys are done with their academics yet, so maybe there’s a hedge there. But I just think they are playing the game of figuring there will be some attrition and making sure they don’t get caught under the numbers once the year starts — an aggressive move to make and different than the more cautious approach of the previous staff.
As the numbers show, UW will again have a small senior class next year. But all the JC signees of this year will make the 2010 senior class look a little more normal. And from there, the numbers should be back to a more acceptable range for all classes.
