A couple of things to note. Dan Mason is listed as a redshirt junior. It is possible he could be reclassified as a redshirt sophomore, given the fact that he sat out the majority of the 2010 season, and all of last year.
Derrick Burns is removed, however he can be classified under the medical hardship category--meaning he can still be on scholarship, but not go against the total count.
E.J. Banks earned a scholarship shortly after camp last year. Brandon Sacco rejoined the team, and enters the 2012 season as a redshirt sophomore. David Dunham enters the 2012 season as a redshirt sophomore, after transferring in from Ohio State.
