Covers all sports. It probably affects men's basketball most significantly, although Rice's traditional transfers are already eligible.

Does it affect any other sport? Baseball maybe, or were those transfers already good to go?

I wish the women's basketball team would take advantage of this rule and see if they can bring in a midterm semester transfer from the Ivy League. Or two.

You had to be enrolled during fall semester at your new institution per Kendall Rogers.

Caroline Lee, vice chair of the Division I Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, "In a time of great uncertainty amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, we feel it is in our best interest to grant immediate eligibility for those who have transferred in order to best support their mental health and well-being."

What a crock of sheep dip.

At this point there's a need to have an annual National Signing Day for all 'student athletes' for virtually all sports. Probably January for fall sports and August for spring sports.

Just another gift to the P5’s. Better than shopping at Jucos for those spots you need to fill because your own recruiting failed to adequately fill them.

Coaches like Pera who identify "under the radar" players and help them to develop are almost always going to be "rewarded" for creating an excellent farm system for P5 schools.

+1. Another gift to the big money conferences. That transfer portal will be full of players soon, including many of our own.

This ruling is for all athletes who are awaiting a ruling from the NCAA for the 2020-21 seasons. (Pretty sure it also applies for spring sports.)

It does not carryover for next year. However, as the article notes, there is a proposal on the table (for January potential approvals) to allow only 1 automatic transfer per athlete. I don't think this should come as a shock to anybody; I remember hearing about this one being likely a while back.

Quote:Meghan Durham, an NCAA spokesperson, noted on Twitter that the Division I Council will consider permanent transfer-rule changes at its January meeting. It is expected that the Council will vote on a one-time transfer waiver that would allow all student-athletes to transfer once without sitting out for a year before playing.

Far from ideal, based on Rice's experience with men's basketball transfer, in particular, but not a surprise, either. Not entirely different from several fears mentioned here, but not carte blanche ad infinitum.
