It looks like there’s going to be a 1-year waiver to expand the signing limit when it comes to recruits committing to a school.

According to Ross Dellenger of Sports Illustrated, coaches would now be able to replace 7 players who leave for the transfer portal. That means there can be a max number of 32 players in a signing class.

There’s also been a slight change to that story though as it sounds like teams can replace any 7 players that decide to go to the transfer portal.

As Dellenger also reports, this is strictly for the December signing period as of right now. If this goes well, officials around college football will plan to meet next year and create something more permanent to this.

The main reason this is being done right now is that so many players have been transferring out from their original schools and when that happens, they don’t have the replacements ready.
