NCAA approves 4-game redshirt rule for college football

NCAA announces transfer, redshirt rule changes Division I Eliminates Permission-to-Contact Transfer Process
Noah Ferguson | 13 Июня, 2018, 22:21

The NCAA Division I Council announced Wednesday that it will adopt a new proposal that allows student-athletes to transfer without getting the permission of their current institution.

It will begin this fall, with the 2018 season, wiping away the need for schools to petition the NCAA for a medical redshirt if a player had already played in a game. Four games, to be exact.

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 first, beginning October 15 student-athletes will be able to transfer and receive a scholarship without asking their current school for permission across all sports.

The NCAA has approved a massive change to transfer rules as student-athletes will no longer be required to gain permission to contact schools once they decide to leave their current institution, essentially ending the practice of blocking transfers by schools. 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.

To be clear, undergraduates still have to sit out a year when transferring.

In an attempt to prevent schools from tampering with student-athletes already enrolled at another institution, the NCAA has made tampering a Level 2 violation.

The change will allow players to maintain a year of eligibility in the event of injuries of other factors require them to play and opens the door to greater development earlier in a players' college career. Golfers, tennis players and other athletes in traditionally nonrevenue sports can transfer one time without sitting out.

"Conferences, however, still can make rules that are more restrictive than the national rule". That idea has fallen off the table amid concerns about creating an inequitable system that could face legal challenges. 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. The so-called autonomy conferences will consider two different proposals to allow schools to cancel the aid.

Beyond this change, the Transfer Working Group is considering other transfer issues, including the processes surrounding postgraduate transfers.
