A coworker of mine has a son who was recently offered a blueshirt scholarship to attend Akron. I guess Terry Bowden has been telling his son that he just has to show up to school for the first day on his own dime and once he steps foot on campus will be awarded a full scholarship. I couldn't find too much about this, but it sounds like they are taking scholarships from the next recruiting cycle and giving them early.
Sounds a little suspicious. It will be interesting to see if any of the national powers start using this technique more frequently.
