3-5-7 addresses compression shorts and tights' color and length.

There are no color or length restrictions on other undergarments.

The rule then continues on to address all undergarments and states that they cannot extend below the uniform pants/shorts/skirts.
While you might consider compression shorts undergarments, the NFHS rules do not.

If compression shorts can not be visible, then why would there be a requirement on color, length and logo?

2006-2007 NFHS rulebook:
page 26 rule 3 art.6
"Undergarments or tights shall not extend below the pants/skirt.
Exception: Compression shorts may be worn if the length is above the knee and they are of a single color similar to the predominant color ot the pants/skirt."

The rule has not changed in the 2012-13 book, it has been reorganized, a logo restriction has been aded since the 2006-07 book.
