NCAA Changes Redshirt Rule

  • NCAA announces change to transfer policy, schools will no longer have ability to block transfers

Nicholas Clark, a former football player at Coastal Carolina and a member of a student representative on the council, said the change promotes fairness and the well-being of college athletes.

"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.

The new rule could change how college coaches handle playing time for certain players, especially younger ones.

The NCAA Division I Council announced Wednesday that it will adopt a new proposal that allows student-athletes to transfer without getting the permission of their current institution.

Under the new system, a student can inform his or her current school of a desire to transfer, and then the school must enter that student's name into a national transfer database within two business days.

Trump slams OPEC as IEA anticipates near-term oil price relief
The president has been vocal about his dissatisfaction with oil prices in the past. "Maybe they are actually way too low". In response, Saudi Arabia, Iran's rival and the largest producer in OPEC, said it would consider increasing supply.

Players wanting to transfer previously had to request permission from their school to be released from their scholarship before seeking other options. "Redshirt football student-athletes are more likely to remain engaged with the team, and starters will be less likely to feel pressure to play through injuries". The rule goes into effect on October 15. Under the new rule, that could continue but coaches will have the opportunity to play freshmen in up to four games during their first year on campus. The rule will put an end to a debatable practice wherein a DI coach would prevent an athlete wishing to transfer from contacting specific schools (usually rival schools).

To address one specific concern, the Council specified that midyear enrollees can not use the exception to play a bowl game before their first academic term.

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

The Division I Student-Athlete Experience Committee will examine how a similar rule could be applied to other sports and will consult with the Division I Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, according to the NCAA. Applications for the rule to be applied to other Division I sports is now being looked at by the council. More often than not, it limited players from speaking to other schools in the same conference or on future schedules.

The old rule was meant to discourage other schools from tampering with student-athletes. The so-called autonomy conferences will consider two different proposals to allow schools to cancel the aid. Currently, a student's notification of intent to transfer at the end of a term is not a listed reason a school can use to cancel aid.
