NCAA announces transfer, redshirt rule changes

NCAA announces transfer, redshirt rule changes Division I Eliminates Permission-to-Contact Transfer Process

Per Hosick, starting with the upcoming 2018-19 academic year, the council also ruled athletes can play in up to four games each season without losing a season of competition. "Freshman players who have redshirted up to this point could still play in a bowl game and still be a redshirted player and have their five-year clock".

In years past, if a player wanted to leave a school, the school, if it granted the player permission to contact other schools, could place restrictions on the school the player speaks to.

Under the new system, if an athlete notifies his current coach that he wants to transfer, that coach is required to enter the athlete's name into a national transfer database within two business days.

Conferences are still allowed to make rules that are more restrictive than the national rule.

The first, beginning October 15 student-athletes will be able to transfer and receive a scholarship without asking their current school for permission across all sports.

"The membership showed today that it supports this significant change in transfer rules", said Justin Sell in a release, the chair of the Division I Transfer Working Group and South Dakota State AD.

"Redshirt football student-athletes are more likely to remain engaged with the team, and starters will be less likely to feel pressured to play through the injuries".

It removes the upper hand that schools have long held over student-athletes looking to transfer. "Coaches will appreciate the additional flexibility and ability to give younger players an opportunity to participate in limited competition".

Berry was extremely optimistic about the proposal's chances following the AFCA Convention in January, was less positive in March and cautious in April, when the proposal was tabled over questions about timing, the number of games and potential application to other sports.

Much of the talk about transfers focuses on the so-called year-in-residence, the one year a player in the most high-profile sports such as football and basketball must sit out after switching 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.

That's one way the model could work, but there is no limitation, meaning that a player could be used in game one, then game eight, and then the Big Ten title game, and then the College Football Playoff and still count the year as a redshirt.
