IF we assume that Gabe Hunter is, in fact, a walk-on at Boise State then I count a total of 39 players on scholarship on offense and 39 players on scholarship on defense and 3 players on scholarship on special teams RIGHT NOW ON CAMPUS.   Adding those figures up we get a total of 81 scholarship players on campus at Boise State right now.  With 11 more scholarship players scheduled to join the team next fall.  Eighty-one plus eleven of course equals ninety-two scholarship players.   So at LEAST seven current scholarship players will have to be let go (or choose not to return) between now and next fall.

However that DOES include so-called "Super" Seniors such as:

OT - John Ojukwu

TE - Kurt Rafdal

OL - Will Farrar

DE - Shane Irwin

CB - Caleb Biggers

CB - Damon Cole

CB - Jared Reed

S - Tyreque Jones

With the announcement today that 2022 RS Sophomore Semaj Verner has entered the transfer portal and will not be returning to Boise State the count on defense is now 38 scholarship players.   And an overall total of 80 scholarship players on campus right now (with 11 more to join the team in the fall).

This means there will be at LEAST six more scholarship Boise State football players who will be either leaving the program before next fall or incoming freshmen who will be greyshirted  in the fall (or a combination of both).   Eighty plus eleven equals 91 - NCAA football scholarship limit is 85.
