Mimms is allowed to play. It’s likely he won’t play much since he won’t be on campus till the first day of preseason camp, but he’s definitely eligible.

According to the sbnation article from 2016 that gets tossed around explaining the difference between blue/grey/red/green shirts...he cant play his freshman year. However airius moore was a blueshirt and played as a freshman so im sure theres some way around it or sbnation is just wrong. But thats the origin of that belief

yeah i found the sbnation article you're talking about. also found this from USA Today Sports

Quote :
"Meanwhile, blueshirts represent the newest loophole for FBS programs to accumulate depth while not affecting their annual numbers. Like grayshirt recruits, blueshirts are counted toward the next season’s scholarship total.

There is one distinct difference, however. 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."

the nc state rivals site also mentions that our 3 blueshirts will be eligible in the fall...and they expect joe shimko (a blueshirt) to be our starting long snapper. so idk.

Yeah, I was wrong. It doesn't make any sense to me, but they are immediately eligibility.

I agree that it doesn’t make sense. But whatever!

Since they aren't "recruited" it's basically like if any random guy showed up to walk-on tryouts and was so good they gave him a scholarship

4* Josh Downs, legacy recruit for NC State, picks UNC.

That one stings. Now we need to go all-in on Moose Jr.

Losing Downs isn't that big of a deal on the field for us, it's all about the perception right now.

UNC is going to push it that they landed another "4-star kid"(though 3* on some sites) and that he was a legacy recruit they stole from NC State.

Obviously landing a guy like Moose Jr, Patterson, or even Antonio Barber(potential UT flip) would quite a lot of that, but the UNC recruiting house of cards is built on all buzz/hype right now.

Honestly feels like UNC is more concerned with landing 4* kids than landing actually good players that fit their scheme or fill a need. Plus their entire staff is built of recruiters that aren't proven coaches. It's going to be very interesting to see what happens during the season, all that buzz/hype is going to disappear if they start losing as much as the last 2 years.

UNC has been landing really good WRs for years. Fedora never had any trouble getting elite WR talent. This is not a big deal. Plus we already have a better one.
