Redshirt: A player that plays in up to 4 games can take a redshirt, which means that they don't use a year of eligibility.
Grayshirt: A recruited player that delays his enrollment for a semester. Example: A kid signs his LOI in February, 2020, but does not actually enroll in school until the Spring semester, 2021, while traditional recruits would be enrolling in the summer of 2020 (usually)). The scholarship would count as par of the next class.
Blueshirt: An "unrecruited" player. He cannot take an official visit to any school, although he can visit unofficially. He cannot have coaches do an official in-home visit. There may be some limits on phone calls as well. Unlike a grayshirt, though, blue shirts enroll for the fall semester and are immediately placed on scholarship. The scholarship, however, counts towards the next cycle. Will Shaffer, as an example, will enroll in time for Fall Camp and will be immediately on scholarship. His scholarship is accounted for in the '21 cycle. Thus, our 25 initial counter scholarships that would be available for the '21 cycle is now down to 24 (23 actually, when also including Morgan).
