As news of commitments, transfers and other roster-related news trickles out over the season and offseason, HawgBeat will update this list and continue to do so until the 85 scholarship players are finalized at the beginning of the 2021 season.

The 2021 season will be unique and scholarship numbers will be expanded due to NCAA COVID-19 legislation. All football players retained their year of eligibility in 2020, meaning seniors had the option to return for an extra season. Those players don't count against the 85-man scholarship limit, unless they transferred in from another school.

That eligibility relief technically kept all players at the same eligibility level for 2021, but the UA has listed them as if the year counted. For example, Bumper Pool was a junior last year and is listed as a senior on the 2021 roster, but he could technically return for an extra senior season in 2022.

Because of that, HawgBeat has decided to list the players below how they appear on the roster, but keep in mind that they still have the option of an extra year.
