B1G Proposing New Legislation Regarding Transfers

About a year ago, the B1G very quietly proposed a rule change for transfers that would apply to every student athlete in the conference, regardless of sport. And we’re talking a big change. The conference is looking to allow any student athlete the right to transfer one time without having to sit out a season and lose a year of eligibility.

Currently, NCAA athletes in only five sports are required to sit for a season when transferring: men’s basketball, women’s basketball, baseball, hockey and football. In the NCAA’s 20 other sports, athletes are allowed a one-time transfer.
