    If we get (4) commitments for '22 , that'd be 13 players for '22, maybe add a grad transfer if they wanted would bring the roster up to 14 players for 2022. Also add (4) more for '23, that'd make 14 on the roster for 2023. I wonder how that would work? Still too many freshmen for those two freshmen classes for those two seasons, '22 and '23 (4) ?

    Jacks now show four roster redshirts. Future R/S's are strong probabilities from injury or developmental needs, which juggles class sizes and recruiting needs.
    Factor in: 319 WBB transfers this year D1-to-D1. Open market?
    Factor in: NCAA soon to allow the one-time transfer with immediate eligibility.
    Oof Da ....

    • ya sure....ha, to be devils advocate here, don't the vast majority of Div1 transfers to Div 1 already have a particular school picked out ahead of time before putting in for a transfer? Seems that way to me. Thanks Grandpa Lee for your input.

      • Puzzled by the choices all D-1 recruits & coaches face, as a result of the "...extra year of eligibility..." granted by the NCAA.

        Will scholarship rosters expand with an extra year, e.g. Tylee Irwin now playing into 2022?
        Or, are coaches forced to trim to stay within the mandatory roster size (15?), or just redshirt freshmen routinely?

        Again, with the one-time transfer changes imminent, does an open market flourish soon?
        Already 20 players in transfer portal for 2020-21 [ https://wbbblog.com/womens-basketbal...0-summer-2021/ ]

        Overthinking, and missing the obvious ?? Do not see a clear course ahead, and would appreciate help navigating thru the options.

          These are great questions to which I don't have an answer. I do think the one time transfer is a way out for homesick kids. They make a transfer and find the same problems they were having at the former school. So it gives them a chance to grow up in areas that they are vulnerable. They may seem super because they run up and down the floor, but they are 18 to 22 year old's and have emotions just like everyone else. The one transfer in the portal that I thought was interesting is the 6'2" athlete from Rice. Rice is a great school academically. If you are there on a free ride, why would you transfer? Much more to the story I am sure.. This new transfer rule is no doubt going to be interesting. These changes are going to force coaches to make many more evaluations.

          • Washington Post writer illustrates with fall sport example that someone loses in the extra year shuffle.
            Clarifications will be forthcoming and re-interpreted continuously in WBB.
            Wary of the qualifier: "... either fewer freshmen can come in or players can't stay for the fifth year..."

              I had understood that the athletic program would need to find the extra money for extra time players could stay on the roster. There would be a time expanded rosters are fine as long as the program money could be supplied. There is the funding that may determine that extra year. The unintended consequences part of the formula will stretch some programs.
              Best to remember these are kids and they are doing everything they can to entertain us, be scholars, and all in all be great humans. Jackedforlife

                That won't be quite so hard for smaller roster sports like basketball where you might have 1 or 2 seniors who want to come back. I saw a tweet from a West River reporter who did an interview with Stig, and he said that 13 seniors want to return. That's out of 16 that I counted on the roster. That would amount to a pretty big chunk of change. It's going to force coaches to make some tough decisions on who they want (and can afford) to bring back.
