NCAA Changes Redshirt Rule

The rule will be put into effect immediately.

As we've seen in recent weeks with the SEC voting to allow inter-conference graduate transfers, the Power Five conferences can implement their own nuances to a national rule.

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. A school interested in recruiting a transferring player also must ask the current school for permission to recruit.

Additionally, in the next week or so, legislation regarding financial aid could be modified.

"This change promotes not only fairness for college athletes, but also their health and well-being", said council chair Blake James, who is the athletic director at Miami.

While it's unclear where most of the Class of 2018 stands in regard to early playing time, it stands to reason that down the stretch of this fall - as has been the case in the past - there will be players who can benefit from the four-game redshirt rule. Last spring at Kansas State, reserve receiver Corey Sutton said he was blocked him from transferring to 35 schools by coach Bill Snyder before the school finally relented amid public pressure.

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

"The membership showed today that it supports this significant change in transfer rules", Sell said.

Schools have drawn criticism for preventing a student-athlete from transferring to a program that better suits them, either academically or in their chosen sport. "The new exception allows football players to preserve a season of competition if, for example, injuries or other factors result in them competing in a small number of games".

There was discussion about easing that restriction, which doesn't exist in most NCAA sports.

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. There was never serious consideration to lifting the year-in-residence altogether, but tying unrestricted transfer to an athlete's grade-point average was considered.

Tampering by schools in transfer situations has been upgraded to a potential Level 2 violations, per the NCAA.

The transfer working group initially was looking at uniform rules across all sports.
