 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  University of Arkansas athletics director Hunter Yurachek is in favor of a potential NCAA rule change that would allow players in the most high-profile sports to transfer once without penalty. The NCAA Division I Council is expected to vote this month on whether to allow all scholarship athletes in football, men's and women's basketball, baseball and men's ice hockey to transfer once without having to sit out a year, as NCAA rules currently read for those sports. Athletes in most other NCAA sports are immediately eligible following a transfer from their initial team. Yurachek has said that he thinks the proposed one-time transfer exemption will pass, but it hit a potential snag Thursday when the 25-member NCAA Board of Governors recommended against the proposal. The 40-member Division I Council is expected to vote on the proposal May 20.

A working group of college administrators has recommended in favor of the one-time transfer exemption for the five sports, as have the Big Ten and ACC. "I don't know if that will be approved to go into effect for this year, but I think there's been movement," Yurachek said April 9. "What's become very cumbersome is the waiver process for the NCAA and how certain waivers have some guidelines that are approved and how others are denied. I think the NCAA would like to get out of the waiver business and by having this one-year transfer exemption, it allows the NCAA to get out of that waiver business and kind of level that off a little bit. I think that's the right thing to do for our student-athletes." - Northwest Arkansas Times
