Scholarship Math

Hold on a minute! Oregon State had roughly 20 scholarships to hand out this year and they just singed 30 recruits...the math just doesn't add up!

By our estimates, the Beavers have 64 players on scholarship, excluding Wednesday's signings but including December's signings (Smith, Polk, LaRoque, Francies). The maximum scholarship limit is 85.

Right off the bat we can knock off four scholarships from the total giving us 26.  We can also knock off five more scholarships due to Krebs, Tuimaunei and the Unga brothers all likely to be taking their missions.  Camat will also be greyshirting do to the team not having enough scholarships this year.  That leaves us with 21.  Receiver Kyle Brown, a recruit from last year, enrolled in January and will count against last year's class.  So, that gives us 20 scholarships for the 2006 class.

It's that simple!
