New NCAA Rule Could Impact HBCU Athletes

Pinch News

The NCAA recently unveiled two policy changes that could affect HBCU athletes. The first rule change is that schools can now assist athletes with NIL deals if they exceed $600. Students will also have a 30-day grace period to notify the school of individual deals. The new NCAA rule means that athletes are not obligated to accept university assistance for their NIL deals.

Another important rule change involves canceling the one-year redshirt policy for transfers. If the athlete is in good academic standing, they will be eligible to play immediately. The new NCAA rule will allow athletes to transfer without limits. However, they would still have two transfer windows in winter and spring. The decision on the rules isn’t final, and the D1 board is expected to vote on the new rules soon. If the rules pass, they could impact HBCUs and change college athletics.
