NCAA rule change means athletes no longer need permission to transfer

NCAA announces transfer redshirt rule changes

The NCAA has passed a rule that allows college football players to play up to four games without burning their redshirt.

That process will no longer exist come October, when a student-athlete will now have the ability to transfer without asking for permission.

"This creates a safe place for student-athletes to have a conversation with their coaches and makes the whole process more transparent", Clark said.

"Division I student-athletes have five years to compete in up to four seasons of competition". That rule was meant to stop DI coaches from recruiting athletes from other DI schools.

In an attempt to prevent schools from tampering with student-athletes already enrolled at another institution, the NCAA has made tampering a Level 2 violation.

"Conferences, however, still can make rules that are more restrictive than the national rule".

The rule changes were decided by the Division I Council in Indianapolis this week.

The announcement took South Korean officials by surprise. "We pay for the majority of them", the president said . "It was discussed.

Over the past few months, CBS reported multiple other transfer proposals, including one that would force all student-athletes to sit out a year after transferring, and another that would lessen the mandated time out for students who meet a certain GPA threshold. Freiermuth and Kuntz, who may have played regardless of the rule change, will now be able to showcase whether or not they can get the job done over returners like Danny Dalton, Jon Holland, and Nick Bowers early in the year, while Luketa, Gordon, and Humphries will all be able to get special teams work along with some September reps to see how they could contribute.

Additionally, in the next week or so, legislation regarding financial aid could be modified. Then, the school will have two days to put the student's name in a national transfer data base. While those discussions continue, that rule has yet to be changed.

Nicholas Clark, a former Coastal Carolina football player and member of the Division I transfer group, offered up these comments on the new rule.

Virginia football coach Bronco Mendenhall has been an outspoken proponent of the NCAA changing its redshirt rules to allow younger players the chance to get some limited game experience without losing a full year of eligibility.

"This change promotes not only fairness for college athletes, but also their health and well-being". "This will clean the process up and give more influence and flexibility to the student-athlete". The so-called autonomy conferences will consider two different proposals to allow schools to cancel the aid.

Starting this fall college football players will now be able to take part in up to four games and still keep their redshirt.
