The NCAA Division I Council ruled against a one-time transfer exception for the 2020-21 season.
“The transfer environment has long been an issue of much discussion in Division I. The Division I Council is committed to a uniform and equitable approach to transfer rules that considers student-athlete well- being and the opportunities available after transfer,” said Council chair M. Grace Calhoun, athletics director at Pennsylvania. “We will not simply change the rule, but we will consider a comprehensive package designed to address the multiple complexities involved.”
The decision means Olivier Sarr, a transfer from Wake Forest, will need a waiver to play at Kentucky this season.
The NCAA plans to move forward with the one-time transfer rule in January and hopefully have rules and guidelines in place for the 2021-2022 season.
