NCAA Transfer Working Group Update
There continues to be great interest in the discussions of the NCAA Division I Transfer Working Group and whether they will change the rules regarding possible immediate eligibility as a transfer athlete to a Division I university.
Unfortunately, I learned at the recent NCAA Seminar that the Group is finding “…no consensus around a uniform transfer rule.”
Furthermore, “Membership feedback and opinions on the Transfer Working Group itself shows wide range of factors that should inform transfer eligibility.”
In addition, the separate Commission on College Basketball has been asked to provide input to the Transfer Working Group, as has each of the Division I Conferences following their recent Conference meetings.
The NCAA stated in one session that it is “Unlikely the Transfer Working Group will recommend potential solutions prior to the 2018-19 academic year.”
