NCAA eases up on Division I football redshirt restrictions

NCAA announces transfer, redshirt rule changes

We have already seen six players leave the program this past week alone, but due to new NCAA rules, players that look to transfer, no longer have to get permission from their school to contact other programs about potential landing spots. The NCAA's Transfer Working Group first proposed this rule change past year.

For all the attention that went to the new "notification" rule, it was not a broad or sweeping change to the transfer rules now in place.

Update: Also of note, the rule change will be in effect for the 2018-2019 season. "Coaches will appreciate the additional flexibility and ability to give younger players an opportunity to participate in limited competition".

Because of situations like that one and dozens of others through the years, Mark Stoops said he is in favor of the change announced by the Division I Council.

The Transfer Working Group simply wants to compile more information before enacting what would be a momentous change to the NCAA landscape.

Obviously, the four-game limit is a third of the 12-game regular season, so what happens when the redshirt rule eventually spreads to other sports? Instead, the NCAA is creating a database in which schools must input a transfer candidate's information within two business days of that player filing their transfer paperwork. The rule change ends the controversial practice in which some coaches or administrators would prevent students from having contact with specific schools. "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".

The United States is likely to have 10 cities selected to host games, while Mexico and Canada are expected to each have three. Soccer President Carlos Cordeiro said this week , according to the Los Angeles Times.

"This creates a safe place for student-athletes to have a conversation with their coaches and makes the whole process more transparent", Nicholas Clark, who represents the Division I Student-Athlete Advisory Committee on the Council, said. At the moment, it does not change the SEC rule that allows schools to block undergraduates from transferring within the league. But there are some student-athletes (like many of their peers in college) that work very hard to get a 2.75 or a 2.9 so why should they not be given the same rights as other student-athletes?

The NCAA's Transfer Working Group, which includes Colorado athletic director Rick George, loosened some restrictions for student-athletes, eliminating the requirement of permission from their current school before being able to receive a scholarship from any new school. "We'll obviously study the rule and the implications in more detail, but in my opinion, it's good for student-athletes and good for our game". While it's impossible to predict what future seasons will hold, the new redshirt rule could've seriously impacted previous seasons. Currently, a student's notification of intent to transfer at the end of a term is not one of the listed reasons a school can use to cancel aid.
