New Transfer Rule

The NCAA passed a new bylaw that will allow athletes in basketball, football, and ice hockey to transfer without sitting out a year if they have finished their degree.

This probably won't have a huge affect on college sports, since it's not that often that players graduate early. Most likely it would only be for a year. It could create the opportunity for a good player from one of the smaller schools to transfer to a major conference and get a little more exposure in their senior year though.
