The University Interscholastic League released updated conference and division cutoff numbers and preliminary enrollment figures for the 2020-2022 reclassification and realignment on Tuesday, Dec. 10 updating previously released figures from a week before.

According to an email from the UIL, in “an effort to increase transparency and accuracy,” the UIL released conference and division cutoff numbers and preliminary enrollment figures last week. New information was brought forward updating numbers previously submitted by schools, which had caused conference cutoffs to be revised.

The updated conference cutoff numbers provide the range of enrollment for each of the six conferences, including divisional cutoffs for football.
