Counting them up again

It’s always a popular topic on here to discuss the team’s scholarship situation everywhere there is a personnel move of some sort. So let’s again break it down again in the wake of the decision this week to redshirt Joel Smith.
2006-07 roster
Scholarship players
SENIORS
F — Hans Gasser
JUNIORS
G — Ryan Appleby
SOPHOMORES
G — Justin Dentmon
F — Jon Brockman
F — Artem Wallace
FRESHMEN
C — Spencer Hawes
F — Quincy Pondexter
F — Phil Nelson
G — Adrian Oliver
C — Joe Wolfinger
REDSHIRTING
G — Tim Morris
G — Joel Smith
WALK-ON
G Brandon Burmeister (senior)
SCHOLARSHIP TOTAL — 12.
Comment: I’ve left Wolfinger in the freshman category because even though he’s redshirting, he’s also losing a year of eligibility. Any appeal to get the year back will happen later and can’t be assumed.
07-08 roster
SENIORS
G – Ryan Appleby
G – Tim Morris
JUNIORS
G – Justin Dentmon
F – Jon Brockman
F – Artem Wallace
G – Joel Smith
SOPHOMORES
C – Joe Wolfinger
C – Spencer Hawes
F – Quincy Pondexter
F – Phil Nelson
G – Adrian Oliver
FRESHMEN
F – Matthew Bryan-Amaning
F – Darnell Gant
G – Justin Holiday
TOTAL 14.
Comment:
This still leaves UW just one over the limit and as has been discussed here before, Tim Morris can be moved to walk-on status if necessary, so even if Hawes stays, the numbers will apparently work out.
Also, as Lorenzo Romar said today “we won’t be young next year.” In fact, this is the first year in a while the Huskies will seem to have almost a perfectly apportioned roster with decent numbers in each class.

08-09 roster
SENIORS
G – Justin Dentmon
F – Jon Brockman
C – Artem Wallace
G – Joel Smith
JUNIORS
C – Joe Wolfinger
C – Spencer Hawes
F – Quincy Pondexter
F – Phil Nelson
G – Adrian Oliver
SOPHOMORES
F – Matthew Bryan-Amaning
F – Darnell Gant
G – Justin Holiday
FRESHMEN
G – Isaiah Thomas
G – Elston Turner
TOTAL 14.
Comment: Thomas and Turner have committed but can’t sign until November. Assuming all goes as planned, Smith’s situation now puts UW one over with the roster as currently assembled, but there seems little chance Hawes would still be here this long, and an awful lot can happen with others on the roster, as well.
It certainly doesn’t mean the Huskies stop recruiting for this class, just that they may now have to be a little more selective.
