NCAA considers tying transfer eligibility to academic marks

Quote:
The NCAA is considering allowing athletes who are doing well in the classroom to transfer with immediate eligibility and permitting incoming freshmen to back out of a national letter of intent if there is a head coaching change.

The NCAA's Division I transfer working group concluded two days of meetings on Tuesday in Indianapolis. Justin Sell, the group chairman and athletic director at South Dakota State, said the group examined data on how transferring impacts academics as it develops concepts for rule reforms that could be presented to coaches, administrators and student-athletes for feedback.

The group will meet again in April and plans to have a model it can present to NCAA membership for comment. The goal is to present a proposal for the Board of Governors to consider for approval in June.

The right to back out of the letter of intent commitment if a HC leaves should be a no-brainer.

The idea of tying things to academic standing sounds good but could lead to unintended consequences. You could see more classes like those offered at UNC and more athletes holding off on taking harder or actual major specific classes.

That’s what I was thinking. They have drama majors for Christsake, why can’t these kids be basketball or football majors? That’s why they are there.

Just let any player transfer whenever they want and let them play immediately at the start of the next full season. It's not difficult.

Implications? Any thoughts on what it would do to the sport?

Even the NBA has contact restrictions. Would you tie that in or just let free choice reign?

Any thoughts on what the NCAA becoming a multi-billion dollar business has done to the sport? Not sure how much integrity is left in major college athletics as is.
