NCAA suspends annual signing class cap for Division I Football

As the new one-time transfer rule and ongoing extra year of eligibility decisions by players as a result of COVID-19 continue to wreak havoc on roster stability for Division I college football programs, the NCAA this week voted to waive the annual signing and initial counter limits for the 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 academic years.

As a result, teams will not have to observe the rule capping initial counters in each class at 25 players per year, but instead allow schools to focus on providing aid based on the overall roster limit of 85 scholarships for FBS football programs and 63 for FCS schools.
