Whose shirt?

Postby Stallion » Tue Jan 26, 2016 2:00 pm

Recruiting is a strange thing with a language all its own. I've been trying to keep the terminology straight:

Redshirt - Enroll with a scholarship, do not play in games first year
Grayshirt - Delay enrollment for a semester or year, start eligibility clock a year late
Blueshirt - Enroll as a walk-on with promise of a scholoarship after one year

Am I missing any?

Red shirt can be any year, not just the first year
Also medical red shirt which is sort of a footnote to red shirt

Thanks for the definition of a Blue Shirt. I saw that in the paper the other day and was thoroughly confused.
