Looking at the furd's site per their comments no Cal recruits are listed in the top 100 (yet). I'm sure they would be only to happy if this status remains this way.
Since we only lose 1 player after this year. Next year roster would topple the 15 roster spots by quite a bit. Really needed since we lose another 5 starters after the 2012 season.
You don't need to have a player on that list to have a good class. I know John Tawa of PrepVB got flak for naming a Canadian player #1 for the 2004 class and has since stopped naming international players on his Senior Aces list. He does consider international players in his top classes rankings.
Also - there is no limit on the number of players on a roster. I remember Cal with as many as 18. I've also heard of some teams with as many as 24. As far as I can tell, there are 11 scholarship players on the current roster (Gaffen transferred) unless Rostratter got a scholarship. The limit on scholarships is 12. My calculations would be that Cal has two to give for 2012, and perhaps more if Hawari doesn't come back for her fifth year (I have no info on that).
