NCAA proposal will allow programs to replace up to seven transfers
The waiver would allow programs dealing with mass transfers to sign up to 32 players in a class
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - A temporary waiver allowing college football programs to sign more than 25 players in a recruiting class as a means of replacing outgoing transfers could be passed next month.
The proposal, which allows programs to sign up to seven additional players in a class to replace up to seven transfers, sets the stage for a permanent rule change that would make life easier for coaches. Austin Price of Volquest.com says it would be big for any program experience a lot of turnover in a season.
The measure won’t come up for discussion until the Oct 5-6 meeting of the NCAA Council. This past spring, the NCAA gave Division I athletes in sports such as football and basketball the ability to transfer once without sitting out a season.
