NCAA looking at updating transfer rules


There is no formal proposal yet, but the Leadership Council published a set of principles for updated transfer rules that make it easy to see what those specific rules might be. In summary, the principles establish a model where:

¦Athletes would still need to get permission to contact another school before transferring. But permission would be tied to practice and competition, not athletics aid. So even if permission was denied, the student-athlete would still be able to receive a scholarship.
¦Athletes who qualify for the transfer exemption in the APR would be permitted to play immediately at the new school. That would make a 2.600 GPA the magic number to play immediately.
¦Athletes who do not qualify to play immediately at the next school would still receive an extension of their five-year clock so they can use all their eligibility.
¦Tampering with an athlete by another school would be considered a severe breach of conduct, a Level I violation, the highest in the NCAA’s new enforcement structure.

Not sure how I feel about this. I need to read up on it a little more.

But there were over 400 transfers in college basketball last year. It's gotten ridiculous.

All I was thinking while reading this was that this would turn into free agency almost.

Then I read this

and felt a little bit better. It would be interesting to see what they consider tampering.

re: NCAA looking at updating transfer rules


if nothing else they should let athletes transfer without penalty if a head coach leaves or is fired
