NCAA changes redshirt rule in college football

Previously, that rule allowed players to obtain a medical redshirt if they played in four games or less than 30 percent of their games that season. The council adopted a process this week that will allow athletes to transfer to another school without seeking permission from their current school. Instead, the NCAA is creating a database in which schools must input a transfer candidate's information within two business days of that player filing their transfer paperwork.

According to the ACC's proposal: "The current rule often places coaches in a hard position to decide whether to play a student-athlete in a limited amount of competition or to preserve the student-athlete's season of eligibility". Freiermuth and Kuntz, who may have played regardless of the rule change, will now be able to showcase whether or not they can get the job done over returners like Danny Dalton, Jon Holland, and Nick Bowers early in the year, while Luketa, Gordon, and Humphries will all be able to get special teams work along with some September reps to see how they could contribute. Once the name has been entered into the database, other schools can reach out.

The new "notification-of-transfer" model will take effect on October 15, 2018. The rule change ends the controversial practice in which some coaches or administrators would prevent students from having contact with specific schools.

The NCAA transfer working group, led by South Dakota State athletic director Justin Sell, has been working on reform since a year ago. While those discussions continue, that rule has yet to be changed.

However, under the new system, individual conferences can agree on their own transfer rules - like mandating time off of competion when an athlete transfers within his or her conference. As part of the rule change approved this week, tampering with a current student-athlete at another school is now a potential Level 2 violation which could bring penalties from the NCAA's Infractions Committee.

"This change promotes not only fairness for college athletes, but also their health and well-being", Blake said. Currently, a student's notification of intent to transfer at the end of a term is not a listed reason a school can use to cancel aid. "This will clean the process up and give more influence and flexibility to the student-athlete".

"This creates a safe place for student-athletes to have a conversation with their coaches and makes the whole process more transparent", said Nicholas Clark, a recent Coastal Carolina graduate and the student representative to the council. The autonomy conferences will consider, by an electronic vote, two different proposals to allow schools to cancel the aid.

However, this could also be a way for coaches to get talented young players on the field while still preserving that fifth year of eligibility, allowing redshirt players to get game experience against "cupcake" teams or potentially play a factor in bowl games.
