NCAA Will Vote in January on One-Time Transfer Exception and Name, Image and Likeness Legislation

By next year, college athletes are expected to be able to transfer once without sitting a year and to profit from their name, image and likeness.

Both of those developments came one step closer to reality on Wednesday, when the NCAA's Division I Council officially approved legislation for both of those measures to be voted on at the NCAA's annual convention in January, the NCAA announced Wednesday evening.

Per the transfer legislation, the one-time transfer exception – which allows athletes to transfer once in their collegiate careers without having to sit out a year – would be expanded to all sports.
