The transfer working group did, though, draft one proposal this week to go before the Division I Council in June for a vote. Proposal 2017-108 (notification to transfer) would scrap the old system, in which student-athletes must request a scholarship release in order to leave a school. It would also eliminate -- with possible rule exceptions created on the conference level -- the ability of a school to restrict the destination of a transfer. In the new system, a student-athlete would notify his or her schools of the desire to transfer, then enter the "transfer portal," essentially a database of transfers available to re-recruit. The working group will ask for the rule change to go into effect, if passed, on Oct. 15 of this year.

The group tasked to reform NCAA transfer rules will not propose legislation in the 2018 cycle that would grant blanket immediate eligibility to any group of potential transfers -- including players or recruits whose coaches leave or players at schools on probation, said Justin Sell, chair of the transfer working group, after two days of meetings in Indianapolis. Also off the table in this cycle is any proposal to bring uniformity to transfer rules in all sports. "It's going to take a little bit more time," Sell said.
