NCAA updates waiver requirements for players looking for immediate eligibility after second transfer
The NCAA has seen a vast amount of college football players enter the NCAA Transfer Portal. Among those seeking a transfer for immediate eligibility are players that are transferring for a second time in their collegiate career.
On Wednesday, the NCAA updated its waiver requirements for players looking to be eligible after entering the NCAA Transfer Portal a second time. The NCAA updated two requirements that needed to be established for players to be qualified.
These two qualifications must apply due to physical or illness or a mental condition that constitutes the need for a player to transfer. Another reason that is approved by the NCAA is the player’s danger such as victims of assault or abuse.

One big aspect that the NCAA observed with multiple players transferring for a second time is a lack of playing time. One example of a player who transferred for a second time is former Alabama and Arizona State quarterback Paul Tyson, who is transferring to Clemson this off-season.
