Student-athletes no longer need permission from schools to transfer

Share

In addition to a new rule that eliminates the need for a player to receive permission to contact in order to transfer, the NCAA also passed legislation allowing players to participate in up to four games in a season without burning a redshirt. As part of the rule change approved this week, tampering with a current student-athlete at another school is now a potential Level 2 violation which could bring penalties from the NCAA's Infractions Committee.

Murray has another season of college football eligibility that he could use beyond this year, although he's obviously decided that he'll be one-and-done as the Sooners' starting quarterback. Applications for the rule to be applied to other Division I sports is now being looked at by the council. The Division I Board of Directors developed a series of principles to guide the Transfer Working group, which included that any rule changes should "support the academic success of student-athletes", and "be based on data and create the least restrictive environment possible for student-athletes".

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.

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.

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. Historically, players who wish to transfer have been blocked from going to any school that's on a future schedule. So if Ehlinger, or any other player, puts their name in the transfer database, it's most likely a point of no return. "The opportunity to play in a small number of games will ease this decision for coaches and help the student-athlete's development and transition to the college game". Previously, an athlete who plays in two or three games and gets hurt can apply for a medical redshirt waiver to gain back that lost year of eligibility.
