Will his Work Ethic fall? 

Coach,

I just found out that you want me to redshirt this season. What happened to all the talk and promises of playing time during recruiting? I thought I was going to get my chance this season.

Yes.  It will.  Same with if you promised a sophomore start.  Freshman start is first year, sophomore is 2nd year, regardless of rehdshirt

If you promised him a Fr start and don't start him...his WE will fall.
If you promised him a So start...u can redshirt him and his WE won't fall. (Must start him his Fr* season)
If you promised him any sort of PT...u can redshirt him and his WE won't fall.

Wait a minute?  His WE won't fall if you promised playing time and then redshirted him?  I had no idea.  Do you have to give him the playing time his Fr* season?

Hmmm, just had a recruit lose WE cause I promised him PT and shirted him.  Wonder if that effect has anything to do with the scouting reply of "being a team player" or not?

Any time I promise PT and red shirt. The player gets ****** off and loses WE.  Most of the time when I promise a ST FR and I red shirt, the player is OK with it but some times a player will get ****** off and lose WE.
 Any time that I promise a FR ST and PT and I red shirt. The player gets ****** off and loses WE. The player will say it is because of the PT. Even though he is OK with him being red shirted.

I redshirt every QB I recruit.
I promise every QB I recruit 75% PT.
I have never had a QB (or any other player I promise PT to) lose WE when redshirting.

I'm with damauler on this one.  RS over a PT promise has no ill effect.  Actually, guys I RS without a PT promise sometimes lose WE, but never the ones I RS w a PT promise.

The guy I promised playing time and a Freshman start to, then Redshirted, threw a fit.  His Work Ethic fell from 24 to 12.  I pulled his Redshirt, and started him with his playing time 2 games ago.  No improvement yet.

The freshman start is why the WE fell.  You would have been OK had it been a sophomore start.

this is a loophole i have learned to exploit, 75% promised pt and redshirt with no ill effects

If you promised a SO start, then redshirt him his SO year, will WE fall a bunch?

Yes. If you don't remove the RS and start him by the time he sends you his third complaint, your REP will also take a hit.
