In my opinion, I think private D3s are "encouraged" to carry large rosters by the administration.

DD’s private college team carried 15 last year. I think this year they will have 18. I’ll admit 15 was a little tough because it seemed like every week they had team members who couldn’t play due to + Covid tests but 18 seems like a good number for them.
