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.
...I'm still confused. How can you be on scholarship but redshirt and not count for a year?
Griffin is a great get. Right in our backyard, glad the staff didn’t let him slip away. Tons of scholarships opened up recently so makes sense to give him a scholarship.
With Hayes and Griffin we are set up very nicely with kickers in the future.
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
Thought this was sort of interesting. Generic research by an Iowa PhD candidate into factors that predict a high school star's college decision. #3 is twitter follows. Turns out to also be a 70% predictor of de-commits.
