NCAA announces transfer, football redshirt rule changes

NCAA announces transfer, football redshirt rule changes

The NCAA also announced a new rule that allows football players who play in up to four games to still have the option of redshirting.

According to the new rule, McKinniss could've preserved his eligibility as long as he didn't play in more than four games.

Alabama football will benefit more than suffer from the new NCAA rules on transfers and redshirts. Perhaps coaches will try and make decisions on freshmen based on if they struggle in that small sample size. Turman said he was kept from being able to have contact with annual opponent Georgia Tech, Miami, where his former coach Mark Richt was hired, and other SEC schools.

The long-awaited transfer reform ended up being a narrow change, but should provide more freedom for athletes to transfer when and where they want.

The proposal was first introduced to the Transfer Working Group in the fall of 2017. The NCAA's Transfer Working Group first proposed this rule change a year ago.

Usually, a coach will play a true freshman or transfer immediately if it justifies not burning their redshirt. Coaches at one school can get a message to a great player at another school that the door would be open to a transfer.

"We were borderline playing probably four, five, six of these guys" in 2017, Stoops said of the redshirt players who could have been difference makers for United Kingdom at various points during the season like Alex King or Jordan Wright.

Now, players are allowed to participate in up to four games without losing their redshirt status.

Could LSU coach Ed Orgeron apply that this season to his quarterback situation? "If a guy has developed and is ready to play - he might not have been ready to play early - and all of a sudden you've had some injuries, those last four games, whether he's on special teams or he incorporates himself into some playing time or has matured, I think it's a significant thing to do".

What it does do, though, is let a young player see action against Louisiana-LaFayette and The Citadel, get some game experience under his belt and not lose a year's eligibility. "But if we don't do that, why is it on me?"

Coaches have raved for years how beneficial it is playing in bowl games, because of the extra practice time that is often used to develop young players. "Redshirt football student-athletes are more likely to remain engaged with the team, and starters will be less likely to feel pressure to play through injuries", NCAA Division I chairman Blake James said in a statement.

While the new rule certainly loosens some of the shackles facing student-athletes who wish to transfer, changes that might eliminate the year-in-residency requirement for undergraduate transfers in the top revenue sports of basketball and football were tabled for further discussion. By that time of the season, the first and second units of a team are worn out from the week-to-week grind of conference play.
