How could he not sign with us he came from a Choate high School.

Prep school. Brody graduated from Melstone High School in 2019 this past May. Not sure but I think it works the same as a JC so Brody would have 4 years to play 3 at MSU.
You could be right but I don't think so. I think he has 4 to play 4 or even still has 5 to play 4. I'd be interested to know for sure.
I would much rather be wrong!

How does the Prep school year work with redshirt years? Does it count as a redshirt? Or is his clock the same as every other incoming freshman?
He's got 5 to play 4.

I love prep schools.

According to this article it doesn't affect his college eligibility: https://406mtsports.com/high-school/bas ... 1d833.html
Grebe was recruited by colleges statewide and beyond to play football or basketball, but instead he will attend Choate Rosemary Hall, a private college prep school in Wallingford, Connecticut, this fall.

There he will continue to pursue his athletic and academic interests without losing any college eligibility.

That's what I thought--it's a 5th year of high school basically.

Just heard... Grebe signs with Cats!!
yep
Boom!
Forgive me for not knowing this, but what position does/will he play for us?
Brayden Konkol replacement.
His dad said he's going to be an OLB and get wildcat opportunities. Aka, mini Andersen.

Him at SAM, Danny U at Mike, and Parks at Will is the future of an elite LB corps.

I hope some of these recruits can help us compete better against FBS schools. When I look around and see the FCS beating FBS schools it feels like MSU should be one of them. Aside from SMU and WSU in 2010 we've gotten our asses handed to us since the Colorado win.

If NDSU can beat #21 Iowa, I think we should be able to easily handle any mid major.

Well...I've heard directly from MSU people in the athletic department "Konkol replacement."

We can almost include Kettels in this class. An OT who signed with us last year, but grayshirted this year due to acl surgery last winter.
I'm not sure if he's still with the program, but I thought he was....and he should have 5 years to play 4 if he grayshirted.

More like clone Andersen and a better arm!

Jacob is absolutely still with the program and will begin school this January. Will be thrown right into the competition at left tackle.

Am I right about the grayshirt rule? Does he indeed still have 5 years to play 4?

Pardon my ignorance, but why is everyone so excited by Grebe? Vim can correct me here but I think you had him rated as the #14 recruit in the state, and he must've gone to Prep school to try and field some bigger offers (looks like UMass and Navy came calling)? I mean he doesn't have any star rating in 247 or anything. Beating out Ivys is great no doubt, but I feel like I'm missing something here.

Yup. That's the primary difference between a redshirt and greyshirt...you don't lose eligibility. You just can't be with the team or enroll with the school that first fall. Your clock starts the following spring.

Let's just say that another year of maturity didn't hurt him!

Also - go look at the film that Vim posted, and his numbers from last years state track.
He's a VERY good athlete.

Maybe I'm wrong, and I'm definitely biased...but I thought last year that he was the gem of that recruiting class. I think he'll be an absolute stud.

Basically the rule is you have 5 years to complete 4 years of eligibility from the time you enroll in college. it's as simple as that. Rarely the NCAA will grant a 6th year to complete the 4 (medical redshirt).
