NCAA approves 4-game redshirt rule for college football

Previously, that rule allowed players to obtain a medical redshirt if they played in four games or less than 30 percent of their games that season.

Schools will no longer be able to block players who want to transfer, and redshirt players can now appear in up to four games in a season without losing a year of eligibility.

Previously, a football player who played in a game or fewer lost a year of eligibility but could appeal to get the year back because of injury or other reasons.

The new NCAA rule does not change the injury redshirt process. The rule changes prevents coaches and administrators from preventing athletes to contact certain schools. In turn, the player's name will be added to a national "transfer database" which allows coaches from other programs to contact that player without restrictions.

"Conferences, however, still can make rules that are more restrictive than the national rule".

"This change promotes not only fairness for college athletes, but also their health and well-being". Instead of a student-athlete asking for permission to transfer from his or her school, the student-athlete will now simply inform the school of his or her decision to transfer.

The NCAA Division I Council announced Wednesday that it will adopt a new proposal that allows student-athletes to transfer without getting the permission of their current institution.

Think you know all the NCAA transfer and redshirt rules? Applications for the rule to be applied to other Division I sports is now being looked at by the council.

"This creates a safe place for student-athletes to have a conversation with their coaches and makes the whole process more transparent", former Coastal Carolina football player Nicholas Clark said in a release.

Much of the talk about transfers focuses on the so-called year-in-residence, the one year a player in the most high-profile sports such as football and basketball must sit out after switching schools. "Coaches will appreciate the additional flexibility and ability to give younger players an opportunity to participate in limited competition".

The Division I Student-Athlete Experience Committee will examine how a similar rule could be applied to other sports and will consult with the Division I Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, according to the NCAA.

In an attempt to prevent schools from tampering with student-athletes already enrolled at another institution, the NCAA has made tampering a Level 2 violation.
