Nope. In wrestling one has to sit 1 year. It's rare to NOT Sit a year when transferring even in "non-revenue" sports.

No, you are wrong - my personal collegiate athletic experience and the NCAA regulations say otherwise.

But as I said, "in general." There are a myriad of reason why someone may have to sit out a year.

I don't like it. In softball or lacrosse. Or track.

You shouldn't get to dump your current team, just because there are greener pastures elsewhere, with no repercussions. (exceptions of course can be made, on a case-by-case basis)

I disagree. You should not have to sit.

An Engineer or a Doctor or any other profession does not have that sit clause at the pre-professional, pre-paycheack school level.

The only purpose is to allow the school to have control over a young athletes career moves. A school can change coach, but the player gets screwed. This even extends down to High School in California. And that is crazy. You can change schools for a better Band program, but not Basketball or Football in California.

The only purpose is to give the coach of the sport more power and protect them from in conference (or level of league) competitors. It has nothing to do with helping the athlete or their interests.

Indentured servitude, pure and simple.

What are the "cases" you imagine are acceptable?

I disagree that this is a fair, apples to apples analogy.

Student-athletes receive four year guaranteed scholarships, so they should have to make four year commitments to the school. The correct analogy, in that case, is like an NFL (or other pro sports) contract for X years. You can't just say "well this other team would be better for me, see ya!"

In college it isn't exactly the same thing, but so then the repercussion for transferring is "only" to sit out a year, as opposed to being barred from playing for any other team for the whole length of the contract.

Not sure. Just imagining that there will be a case where it would be plainly unfair, given the circumstance of the athlete and school, to prevent the transferring athlete from being immediately eligible.

Indentured servitude, pure and simple.

Engineering schools and medical schools are not restricted to accepting only 25 new students and don't have to count a transfer against the new student limit. An FBS school has to have a minimum of 77 scholarship players, so if a school is at 77, graduates 25, signs 25 newcomers and then one of the existing leave, they cannot go out and replace that player.

In basketball there are only 13 slots period for scholarships.

No, they don't, and no they shouldn't.

Not all student-athletes, even Division One football and basketball players, receive scholarships. Full ride scholarships are astonishingly rare (but not unheard of) even at the top levels of college athletics outside of revenue sports.

And another point, there is no such thing as a "guaranteed scholarship." Each scholarship is renewable, each year, and an athlete can have their scholarship revoked for any variety of performance, health, or attitude reasons.

Like if the junior point guard is going to lose all playing time to the hot-shot freshman? Or perhaps the 18 year old kid is homesick and wants to be closer to Mom and Dad?

There are some legitimate reasons to restrict transferring between schools and most people accept them - inter-conference transfers, being recruited by another school, and probably some others. But not just because the 18 year old kid should honor a one-year contract for four or five years out of some sense of duty or honor to school, a coach, or a system that no longer fits the student-athlete's priorities.

All P5 schools now MUST give 4 year guaranteed scholarships. Other schools can if they wish.
