The NCAA has approved a massive change to transfer rules as student-athletes will no longer be required to gain permission to contact schools once they decide to leave their current institution, essentially ending the practice of blocking transfers by schools.
Under previous NCAA rules, programs could deny student-athletes permission to seek transfers to schools for any reason, no matter how inconsequential. That rule was meant to stop DI coaches from recruiting athletes from other DI schools. A school interested in recruiting a transferring player also must ask the current school for permission to recruit. As soon as the athlete's name is in the database, other coaches are then free to contact them.
"The membership showed today that it supports this significant change in transfer rules", Justin Sell, chair of the Division I Transfer Working Group and South Dakota State athletic director, said in press release from the NCAA.
"This creates a safe place for student-athletes to have a conversation with their coaches and makes the whole process more transparent", Clark said. When defensive tackle Antwuan Jackson chose to transfer from Auburn after the 2016 season, Jackson said that Auburn would block him from transferring to another SEC school, Ohio State, Clemson or Georgia. The NCAA release does say, however, that conferences can still make rules within this process that are more restrictive than the national rule.
Beyond this change, the Transfer Working Group is considering other transfer issues, including the processes surrounding postgraduate transfers.

As we've seen in recent weeks with the SEC voting to allow inter-conference graduate transfers, the Power Five conferences can implement their own nuances to a national rule. That idea has fallen off the table amid concerns about creating an inequitable system that could face legal challenges.
