By my count 21 seniors leaving program this year from a roster of 100.  Since roster will eventually need to pare down to meet limits (95 I think), you could calculate a class of only 15 + underclass attrition.  Suspect will be seeing an increase in attrition since roster size is being limited in the future.  Current soph class is quite large, 28 and last years recruits were 26.  Suspect future classes will be in the range of 22 to 24 depending on how future attrition goes.

When you look at the seniors departing it is a little scary for the defense, 3 of 4 starting DBs, 3 starting DL, 2 of 4 starting LBs + Gordon that started some also.  Not much better on O, where a lot of skill guys graduating as well as Ruley and Vuono on the OL.

DL a big concern for 2013 and don’t expect help from this years recruits.  Hope some of last years recruits are big upside surprises.
