NCAA Transfer Vote: Division I Council set to meet April 24

According to a report from Kendall Rogers of D1 Baseball, the NCAA is expected to discuss the implementation of a one-time transfer waiver two weeks from today — Friday, April 24. As Rogers notes, the Division I Council could decided to vote on the matter that day, too. However, the belief is that the vote will take place a month later: May 20.

The waiver is expected to pass and would apply for the 2020-21 sports season.

In just the college basketball universe, this move would certainly impact a plethora of players. Graduate transfer currently make up less than 25 percent of the 746 players in the Division I men’s basketball transfer portal.

For instance, Syracuse landed a commitment from Illinois transfer wing Alan Griffin last weekend. Griffin has two more years of eligibility remaining; however, if this measure goes into effect, the 6-foot-5 wing would be able to suit up and play in the 2020-21 season.
