NCAA tweaks redshirt rules, allows players to preserve eligibility

NCAA tweaks redshirt rules, allows players to preserve eligibility

"This change promotes not only fairness for college athletes, but also their health and well-being", Blake said.

Virginia football coach Bronco Mendenhall has been an outspoken proponent of the NCAA changing its redshirt rules to allow younger players the chance to get some limited game experience without losing a full year of eligibility.

Wednesday, the NCAA's Division I council also announced a change in the way transfers will work. The new process allows the athlete to notify his current school of his desire to transfer and will then require the school to enter the student's name into a database within two business days of the request.

Berry was extremely optimistic about the proposal's chances following the AFCA Convention in January, was less positive in March and cautious in April, when the proposal was tabled over questions about timing, the number of games and potential application to other sports. "I'm proud of the effort the Transfer Working Group put forth to make this happen for student-athletes, coaches and schools".

The NCAA announced a significant change to its redshirt and transfer policies for football players on Wednesday.

But a change to that rule will now allow for some breathing room.

The Division I council also slightly altered transfer rules.

Of course, I have ambition, I have passion for what I am doing, but I never have been insane about all this kind of stuff. It rarely is for Nadal at a place he has lorded over the way no other man ever has at any Grand Slam tournament.

The Division I Council adopted a proposal this week that creates a new "notification-of-transfer" model.

That process will no longer exist come October, when a student-athlete will now have the ability to transfer without asking for permission.

The outgoing rule that required athletes to get permission before transferring was meant to prevent schools from recruiting athletes from other schools.

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. Golfers, tennis players and other athletes in traditionally nonrevenue sports can transfer one time without sitting out. At that point, coaches from other schools are free to contact the student.

"This creates a safe place for student-athletes to have a conversation with their coaches and makes the whole process more transparent", former Coastal Carolina football player Nicholas Clark said in the NCAA statement. 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.

Previously a player would lose his redshirt status after taking the field for a single play.
