Why would a non scholly Div III transfer have to sit a season?

Scholarship or no scholarship, in the past I know that if you transfer up or sideways you sit, transfer down and you don’t.

It’s a lot more nuanced than this. If the player was either granted a NLI release from their prior school or was technically a walk-on (not recruited) they would be immediately eligible. And this doesn’t include all the other possible exemptions/waivers that are sometimes granted now.

Quote:NCAA transfer eligibility rules: Walk-ons

Walk-ons is one of the sports terms that's important to know. Soon-to-be NCAA D1 student-athletes who were walk-ons at their previous institutions can generally be immediately eligible at their new one. This applies if the institution that they are leaving offered athletic scholarships in this player's sport, but one was not offered to this student-athlete. It also applies if the previous school did not offer athletic scholarships in that sport, but the player was not recruited to play there.

RE: 2020 FB Recruiting
The way the NCAA has been distributing waivers anymore I wouldn’t doubt it, but I don’t think it’s a slam dunk. When I was in school there were a few guys that transferred up and sat, including one that fit this same exact criteria. Regardless, going back to my first point, if a person can’t get on the field in 2 seasons at a D3 school it’s quite a stretch to think they’d come in and have an instant impact at this level.
