The NCAA Division I Council officially voted to grant winter sport student-athletes an additional year of eligibility.
“The pandemic will continue to impact winter sports seasons in ways we can’t predict. Council members opted to provide for winter sport student-athletes the same flexibility given spring and fall sports previously,” said Council chair M. Grace Calhoun. “The actions today ensure the continuation of local decision-making in the best interest of each institution and its student-athletes.”
Brett McMurphy also broke that the Division I Council approved a proposal to allow one-time transfers in all collegiate sports without sitting out a season. McMurphy says a vote will come in January.
