Transfer rules in DI for sports other than football, bball, baseball
Was surprised to learn that some sports in DI do allow transfers between schools to play the same year that they transfers. I assumed it was across the board that you had to sit out that year.

Not true, as example by a softball player who is transferring home to Minnesota from LSU:

I guess question would be: is this a specific rule to softball? Or do other sports in DI allow this?

In general, non-revenue sports are fine being eligible the next year. Assuming your coach gives you a release, of course.

Thanks, from the link:

Quote:One-time transfer exception: If you transfer from a four-year school, you may be immediately eligible to compete at your new school if you meet ALL the following conditions:

- You are transferring to a Division II or III school, or you are transferring to a Division I school in any sport other than baseball, men's or women's basketball, football (Football Bowl Subdivision) or men’s ice hockey. If you are transferring to a Division I school for any of the previously-listed sports, you may be eligible to compete immediately if you were not recruited by your original school and you have never received an athletics scholarship.
- You are academically and athletically eligible at your previous four-year school.
- You receive a transfer-release agreement from your previous four-year school.


If literally interpreted, this means that transfers between FCS programs can be eligible immediately! I've never heard that before ... not sure if it's actually true. Have always seen transfers between FCS have to sit out the transfer year.

It wasn't that long ago that it changed for baseball, not sure the specific year, but definitely in the last 10 years or so. TCU definitely had a few transfer from schools like Dallas Baptist and play right away in the early to mid 2000s.

When there is no revenue, nobody cares what you do.

When there is revenue, protecting the coach and the team are far more important than the right to seek the best opportunity for a young student/athlete to do what is right for their future.

Duh

Track athlete at Oklahoma is transferring to AState because he wants a shot to play football. He's immediately eligible to run track at AState but has to sit a year for football even though he never practiced with the OU football team.

Duh

Seems like its the sports where there are professional leagues, i.e. some motivation for future monetary gains to encourage a move.

You can transfer in Lacrosse without sitting a year. Hurts schools like UMass who recruit a kid and then he has a huge Freshman year and transfers to Syracuse.

UMass softball just lost their best player to Mississippi State as well.

Sucks
