I believe the early signing period starts December 18. Is the expectation that we will sign all 23 of our commits? Any upside/downside surprises expected?
The hope and expectation is that we keep them all. Jahmyr Gibbs has been getting serious attention from Bama, Ohio State etc but the coaches were there last night with him and his teammate his family lives with (who's going to be a PWO for us, by the way). We had one decommit yesterday so I haven't looked at the numbers to see if he is one of the 23 or whether his decommital brings us down to 23.I believe the early signing period starts December 18.

Why are you guessing not Gibbs?We will sign almost all of them, likely not Gibbs, if I had to guess. He has said all along he will wait til February. We are in the mix for several more recruits.
Turner has decommitted and it looks like Behrens has reclassified back to 2021.
He has stated he isn't signing until February. I don't think he's able to graduate early and early-enroll, so he is taking full advantage of the full recruiting cycle. We're likely going to schedule his OV here for much closer to the February signing day.Why are you guessing not Gibbs?
Plus transfers.Highly unlikely the whole class signs, but the more the better. Anyone who doesn't sign is a definite risk to end up somewhere else...and that goes for players who don't sign for other teams as well.
After the early period is over, some of the bigger programs will reevaluate their roster and start going after their back-up plans...which is where it can get hectic. Gibbs will get plenty of love between now and February if he decides to wait, but nothing new because he's already getting love from top programs.
For reference, these are the guys we added between the early period and NSD last year:
My son graduated five years ago but he was in school with the two potential transfers along with Ramsey, Barnett and Knox.You'll have some explaining to do if we miss on those Brentwood guys.
