NCAA announces transfer, redshirt rule changes

The NCAA also announced its continuing effort to improve rules regarding graduate transfers and is "exploring the possibility of uniform transfer rules".

"College athletes competing in Division I football can participate in up to four games in a season without using a season of competition, the Division I Council decided this week at its meeting in Indianapolis", the statement reads.

Student athletes at the Division I level now have five years to play up to four seasons. The significance of the rule is a player can appear in those limited number of games at any point in the season.

Under the new ruling - announced Wednesday and going into effect this season - Hoak would have been able to play without penalty.

The benefits are many, Division I Council chairman Blake James said in an NCAA news release on Wednesday.

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.

Black played in the first four games of the season in 2017 before suffering a broken foot, an injury that kept him sidelined the rest of the way.

In recent seasons, Stoops also has lamented having to play guys who probably needed an extra year of development to reach their full potential, specifically mentioning players like defensive back Marcus McWilson and wide receiver Charles Walker.

American Football Coaches Association executive director Todd Berry lobbied for the redshirt rule change for years and reiterated it had "unanimous" support from the coaches. Student athletes will no longer be required to seek permission - or a release - from their current school to transfer to a specific program, eliminating the ability of programs to block players from certain schools.

"This creates a safe place for student-athletes to have a conversation with their coaches and makes the whole process more transparent", Nicholas Clark said.

Under the new rule, athletes only must tell their school's compliance director that they wish to transfer - essentially with no questions asked - and must see their names put into the NCAA's national transfer database.

"Now you're getting to midseason or close to the end and you're making a run to get into a bowl game or what have you", Moos said, "and you have some injuries and such and that player (who redshirts) is ready, because he's had a couple months of scrimmage, he's been in the weight room and he's acclimated". "This will clean the process up and give more influence and flexibility to the student-athlete".
