NCAA Announces Changes For Transfer Rule
NCAA WILL INSTITUTE CHANGES TO TRANSFER AND REDSHIRT RULES
The NCAA announced a couple of major rule changes today.
As of now the the transfer rule states that a student-athlete planning on transferring schools must inform his program that he plans on transferring.
Then the school can block the student-athlete from from contacting certain other schools.
That rule is going to change come October, because today the NCAA division one council ruled that when a student-athlete informs a school that he plans to transfer, The school has 48 hours to process the paper work and any other coach can talk to the student-athlete.
The NCAA also changed the redshirt rule. Student-athletes can now play up to four games and maintain redshirt status.
The redshirt rule allows players to not lose a year of eligibility due to injury, or any other factors.
The prior rule called for a student-athlete to lose red shirt status if they played in a single play of any game.
