Same question I have.   Also, is this similar to what Nebraska used to do under Osborne with feeding and coaching these boys up until they became very good players and starters by their junior and senior years?  I  think you still have to stay at 105 or under, correct?  Is this walkons and scholarship players combined?

They can have I think the number now is 120 players on the team. If they have 85 on scholarship then that would 35 spots for walkons. That is total walkons obviously not just new ones.

NEBRASKA GOT A LOT OF THOSE CORN-FED BOYS ON AG SCHOLARSHIPS FOR TWO YEARS BUILT THEM UP IN WEIGHT ROOM AND DINING HALL AND THEN CAME OUT AS JUNIOR AND SENIOR LINEMEN...   A FRIEND OF MINE IN THE AG COLLEGE THERE VERIFIED THIS FOR ME

PWOs are like guaranteed to be on the 105 man roster to go through pre-season or something of that sort I thought.

Yep. I was a PWO and it is much different than being a true walk-on. You go through pre-season, travel, etc. You are basically a player that does not have his school paid for. A true walk-on that makes the team in tryouts reports right before the first season game and is a practice dummy. You do not show up in programs etc but you are on the team, you travel to the bowl games and you get tickets to the games.
