NCAA Planning To Allow Additional Year of Eligibility for Spring/Winter Sports Athletes

247 Link

One major point is they are considering waving the counts of any senior on the current rosters against next year's numbers.

So Kerry can come back?

Maybe.

He would be eligible to transfer if he has graduated and has one year left.

As of this moment, we don't have a spot for him.

If we were to have a spot, we could conceivably have Johnson back, giving us KBJ, Aluma, Johnson, Ojiako, and Horne as bigs

Is that an additional year for everyone on the roster? That could be pretty beneficial for our basketball team in coming years

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

It appears only for those who will have exhausted their eligibilities before end of the 2020 Winter and Spring seasons.

Yeah, um, this is the NCAA we're talking about. You know it'll apply to every NCAA member school except us, because, Virginia Tech. /s

Somehow Brock just lost another year of eligibility. /s

We put the K in Kwality

Bump

NCAA just passed a motion to allow schools to grant spring sports athletes an extra season of eligibility

If you want level-headed opinions, don't go on a message board or sports forums

I'm disappointed it's at schools discretion though.

I can see it being a problem for schools that can't afford the additional scholarship money. Outside of that schools should be offering it to any eligible student athletes.

Raises a really weird question for recruiting. Say duke has 5 recruits already signed, but graduates nobody now do they get to keep the recruits? I could see a ton of transfers this next year

Taylor, looking desperately throws it deep..HAS A MAN OPEN DANNY COALE WITH A CATCH ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE FIVE!!!!....hes still open

This is spring sports. So softball, baseball, lacrosse, field hockey, rowing etc. it's impact won't be as public as fall sports would have been.

So if it's up to the school then I'd assume the seniors couldn't transfer, because the school wouldn't let that happen.

I would hope that the NCAA would allow any one affected to not count towards the scholarship limit. Then it's really just a scholarship cost issue.

You might see more redshirts this year though.

The only sport that had limits was baseball

What do you mean? Every NCAA sport has scholarship limits.
