Spring practice rundown — who’s here, who’s not

The beginning of spring practice is now four days away and thought it might be helpful to list some of the comings and goings since the end of last season:
INCOMING FRESHMEN THAT WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR SPRING PRACTICE: There are four — RBs Deontae Cooper and Jesse Callier, QB Nick Montana and LB Victor Burnett. All of the rest, except for those who may delay enrollment (the only one confirmed there is John Timu) will arrive in the fall.
SCHOLARSHIP PLAYERS WHO HAVE TRANSFERRED OR OTHERWISE LEFT THE TEAM SINCE THE END OF LAST SEASON: I count six — QB Ronnie Fouch, RBs Willie Griffin and Curtis Shaw, LB Kurt Mangum, WR Vince Taylor and OL Terence Thomas (Thomas has retired for injury reasons, the rest transferred in search of more playing time elsewhere).
PLAYERS WHO WILL SIT OUT THE SPRING FOR INJURY OR OTHER REASON: DEs Kalani Aldrich, Everrette Thompson and Andru Pulu, S/LB Victor Aiyewa, OLs Cody Habben and Greg Christine, RB Chris Polk. All are injured or recovering from off-season surgery except Pulu, indefinitely suspended after being arrested for assault. All of the injured players are expected back for fall practice.
Probably should also throw E.J. Savannah on here somewhere as a player lost since the end of the season since he was denied in his appeal for a sixth year of eligibility.
So by my count, that leaves 58 scholarship players available for the spring (or 57 if you don’t count Jake Locker).
That may not seem like a lot, but that seems like a pretty typical number for a spring. That’s the exact same that Syracuse had when it opened spring practice this week, for instance.
