NCAA to approve one-time transfer rule

NCAA to approve one-time transfer rule

Matt Bush-USA TODAY Sports This means all sports are finally treated equally As expected, the NCAA will be passing a one-time transfer rule for all sports. This rule will finally bring all sports under one rule and eliminate the need for waivers and the unpredictable nature in which those were handled.

This means that every athlete who has transferred or will transfer by July 1st will be eligible to compete in the 2021-22 academic year. The one-time transfer rule for athletes in all sports...
