Kid is added as a non-recruited athlete, immediately on scholarship but cannot play the first year so scholarship does not count against this year's numbers, counts against next year.Explain blue shirt.
Griffin will be a blueshirt at Illinois, meaning he will be on scholarship in the fall but will redshirt and count toward the 2019 class. He chose the Illini blueshirt offer over a full-ride scholarship to Iowa, which came on Thursday.
If you are not actively recruited (no official visits or no in homes) and come to school as a walk on, you can be put on scholarship and count for the following year. It is called blue shirt recruit....I'm still confused. How can you be on scholarship but redshirt and not count for a year?

Hard to overstate how key it is to have a VG kicker and punter. Particularly in our neck of the woods.
Very hard to decipher twitter but Bennet Williams gave a winking emoji to a guy who asked if Merlin is coming. Again very out there though
