NCAA deciding on changing 1-time transfer portal rule
The NCAA is proposing a change to its 1-time transfer rule. The new rule would add transfer periods, so that certain student-athletes can’t abuse the portal per NCAA.org
The way that the rule currently works is that athletes must announce that they are transferring before May 1st of the academic year so that they can be eligible immediately. This change would make it where there would be 2 different transfer periods.
The 1st one will be 45 days after the NCAA Championship selection. The 2nd period will still be in the month of May, but will make the period be from May 1-15. The majority of the Division 1 Council has agreed that will make the transfer portal better.
If the rule change goes through, it could make the transfer process a lot easier for student-athletes. Sometimes the only thing better than 1 transfer window is 2.
