NCAA proposal that would curtail graduate transfers not expected to pass

CBS Sports

An under-the-radar NCAA proposal that would at least slow the 13-year-old graduate transfer movement faces a vote this week. Its passage looks unlikely.

Proposal 2018-106 would require any program accepting a graduate transfer in football, men's basketball or women's basketball to commit to a scholarship for two years rather than one. (The second-year commitment would disappear if the transfer completed their graduate degree in the first year.)

If a transfer did not complete their graduate degree in that first year and ran out of NCAA eligibility, a program would have a "dead" scholarship that second year.

Since the rule debuted in 2006, athletes who chose to use their final year of eligibility as a graduate transfer would leave one school to pursue that graduate degree at another.

At issue: Should the accomplishment of that pursuit matter? The proposal, say several experts, is unreasonable.
