Does anyone know if Staten Wade, Ryheem Malone, and Karson Block count against this years class?
Man, been in NO too long....missed 2games and the recruiting bash.....will there be any video high lites of the signees videos?
How is a blue shirt different from a grey shirt? When can the blue shirts enroll and be a part of the team?
Red. Blue. Grey. I'm so confused.
Some excerpts from a website describing the practices.
Redshirt are able to participate in every team function minus the games themselves; a player who plays in a single game will lose his redshirt status. By taking a redshirt, players are given five years to complete their four seasons of on-field eligibility.
Greenshirt recruits are those who enroll one semester ahead of schedule and join an FBS program for the start of the spring term in January. Typically, greenshirts are the most likely to earn immediate playing time as a true freshman.
Grayshirts are recruits who are offered a delayed scholarship. Essentially, grayshirts will postpone their enrollment until after the conclusion of the upcoming season; they will take classes, often as part-time students, but not officially join the program until the ensuing spring semester.
Blueshirts are counted toward the next season's scholarship total, but unlike grayshirts a blueshirt is able to enroll and participate in team events in the fall. This allows programs to get the best of both worlds.
FBS schools can delay a scholarship for the following year, allowing them to over-sign beyond the 25-scholarship limit, and get the use of a prospect immediately rather than waiting until the following spring.
So...does that mean HUD and staff are hedging on 2017.
2018 may only leave you with 10-15 avaliable spots.
It will definitely make recruiting easier
Too many shirts!
Like I said I don't follow recruiting closely, but I am surprised we held on to Lewis and our continued recruiting strength in MS. I also thought we would be losing more upperclassmen in the semester transfer window.
I think it was a better class than expected. I like the few surprises. The OL from Mississippi and the DB from Mississippi specifically. I think we are still going to add a grad QB transfer or juco QB to this class.
And of course chase Rogers was a big get. I spoke to a coworker that is a huge Tennessee fan. He was disappointed they could not get Rogers.
Ill probabaly get a blue dot for this, but are these new shirt types another example of the big boys updating the rules on the down low?
