At least from the school. When a player wants to transfer, school cannot deny it and must enter their name into a transfer database within two business days when then other coaches are free to contact them.

However, conferences can still impose their rules about transferring (say to a school in the same conference) and those will not change.

1. Probably the way it should be. They're not slaves. Coaches routinely don't finish out signed contracts, athletes should be the same.

2. No real point of a NLI anymore.

NLIs have not had any validity for a decade. How many times do you see people "decommit"? All the damn time. Might as well be a post it.

NLI's used to mean a player would have to ask to decommit. Of course, they are always allowed to decommit but if you sign an NLI then the players would be required to follow certain rules whatever those may be by school/conference (cant transfer within conference and get a scholarship, cant transfer to team on schedule, etc.). If you never sign you can just decommit. I've said for a long time players shouldn't sign an NLI but if they don't a team might fill that spot. But, if the team really wants you that won't be a problem.

This would be the bigger earth shaker

The most commonly discussed: a move away from the requirement that most transfers sit out a season before being eligible to play at their new school. There’s been some talk about letting players who meet a GPA benchmark skirt that year of sitting out, but it’s not clear if the NCAA will move ahead on it.

I put it on twitter. This rule is step 1 in college basketball Free Agency.

Another rule change: guys can play in up to 4 games and still redshirt.

I guess it was inevitable. I would like to have seen a little more time for current university to be given an opportunity to change the kid's mind. 2 days is pretty tight. But teams are going to contact some kids even before the kids know they want to transfer.

The 1st post in the thread also says football in the link. I thought it was a thing.

The transfer rule is for both. I don't know about the redshirt rule.

Considering 4 games in 25% of a football season it better be for basketball too where 4 games is only 13% (not including playoffs in both sports). That's the equivalent of a basketball player being allowed to redshirt after 8 games.
