When their redshirt season is over. A RS freshman would have been in the program for his second season, sitting out his freshman year; then playing in what would be his sophmore season.

For example, LaMichael James was a member of Oregons 2007-2008 class. He redshirted in 2008. And now he is a RS freshman playing in 2009

What is meant by a fifth year senior when playing football in college?

It has to do with whether or not he was redshirted as a freshman. If he was redshirted, that means he did not play in any games during his first year at the college. Players are eligible to play in actual games for 4 years, those years are freshman, sophomore, junior, senior. If they redshirt, by the time they are team "seniors" they have actually been on the team for 5 years, thus "5th year." If a freshman doesn't redshirt, then he is referred to as a "true freshman." I assume this is the same for transfer players, but don't know.

What is the difference between Red Shirt and Grey Shirt status in college football?

While both recipients of grey and red shirts attend classes at a school before participating in football games, the difference is in the player-to-be's time of enrollment:Via John Mackovic of The Desert Sun: "Grey shirt is a term used to designate an incoming freshman who waits until the second semester to enroll rather than the fall. Collegeathletes are allowed a five year calendar to play four seasons. The calendar begins once one is enrolled. By waiting until the spring to start college, a player will be playing his last season in the sixth year after high school rather than the fifth. "In contrast, infoplease.com explains that "When a player is given the "red-shirt" designation by his or her coach, that means he or she has participated in a college's academic year, but did not participate during that year's sports season. Most likely a "red-shirt freshman" in college football is a sophomore in college who practiced with the team his first year, but did not play in any games (at the coach's request), or was seriously injured during his first season." By redshirting, a player gains an opportunity to learn schemes and techniques, rehabilitate an injury, learn a new position and/or physically develop without losing a year of eligibility.
