Never mind. We are able to go over because of sign and send guys like Hicks and Albrecht who will not count against this year's limit.

Good point on the other commits SSS. I'm looking forward to seeing who they are. I'd love to see another JC OL like Chris Stringer or Miles Mason pop in there. Hopefully Tyler White as well.

A little suspense is good. Remember the old days when we only knew the names of four or
five recruits and we waited throughout the day to see who they signed.
