NCAA passes 4-game redshirt rule; what it means for Syracuse football

NCAA announces transfer, redshirt rule changes Division I Eliminates Permission-to-Contact Transfer Process
Frederick Owens | 13 June, 2018, 23:42

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 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". In turn, the player's name will be added to a national "transfer database" which allows coaches from other programs to contact that player without restrictions. Instead of a student-athlete asking for permission to transfer from his or her school, the student-athlete will now simply inform the school of his or her decision to transfer. "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 new transfer rule goes into effect October 15.

The NCAA's Transfer Working Group proposed the change in fall 2017 in an attempt to separate a student-athlete's interest in transferring to a new school from the process of receiving a scholarship at the new school. "Coaches will appreciate the additional flexibility and ability to give younger players an opportunity to participate in limited competition".

Previously, a football player who played in a game or fewer lost a year of eligibility but could appeal to get the year back because of injury or other reasons. The rule change ends the controversial practice in which some coaches or administrators would prevent students from having contact with specific schools.

Even with the new rule, conferences could still restrict athletes from transferring within the league.

According to news announced on Wednesday, players will no longer need permission from their school to transfer, and further, individual schools will no longer be able to block recruits from transferring to a certain school. Applications for the rule to be applied to other Division I sports is now being looked at by the council. "Division I student-athletes have five years to compete in up to four seasons of competition".

If another school tampers with student-athlete, it could be a Level 2 violation.

More changes could be on the wayAnother financial aid element, autonomy legislation that governs when a school can reduce or cancel aid, may be adjusted next week by the autonomy conferences.
