What is a Redshirt?

A redshirt is when an athlete chooses to sit out of a year of competition during one of their 5 eligible years of play. The NCAA dictates that you can only compete for 4 of the years to allow for a redshirt year.

Many athletes will choose to redshirt to nurse injuries, focus on academics or to gain muscle, size or position on the team.
