NCAA passes reform that allows athletes to transfer without permission

NCAA announces transfer redshirt rule changes

Previously, that rule allowed players to obtain a medical redshirt if they played in four games or less than 30 percent of their games that season.

The old rule was meant to discourage other schools from tampering with student-athletes.

It removes the upper hand that schools have long held over student-athletes looking to transfer.

Additionally, the proposal adds tampering with a current student-athlete at another school to the list of potential Level 2 violations, considered a significant breach of conduct.

Tim Burton , obviously, is definitely the right person for the job when it comes to reviving Disney's Dumbo vibes. However, Dumbo's caretaker soon learns that Dreamland isn't what it appears to be.

American Football Coaches Association executive director Todd Berry lobbied for the redshirt rule change for years and reiterated it had "unanimous" support from the coaches.

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

Student-athletes have five years to complete four seasons of competition, so the new rule will allow an athlete to use a redshirt, if it hasn't been previously used, in up to four games of competition during the season.

The outgoing rule that required athletes to get permission before transferring was meant to prevent schools from recruiting athletes from other schools.

The NCAA transfer working group, led by South Dakota State athletic director Justin Sell, has been working on reform since previous year. The NCAA notes, however, that conferences can enact rules that are more restrictive than the national rule.

"I think this new rule will be a great opportunity for a student-athlete and their overall college experience", Mendenhall said in a statement provided by a spokesman.

"Even if some senior players decide it's not in their best interest to play in a bowl game, what a wonderful thing it would be to play some of the freshman in that bowl game and not lose their redshirt year". The change will come with stricter tampering rules to help appease coaches who worry illegal recruiting could rise.

If a student enrolls midyear and plays in a postseason football game before or during their first term, the new rule does not apply. "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", James said. Now, a player simply has to tell his school he wishes to transfer and the school will have two business days to put their name into a national transfer database. "This will clean the process up and give more influence and flexibility to the student-athlete". The significance of the rule is a player can appear in those limited number of games at any point in the season.
