SEC tweaks graduate transfer rules, opening door for Zaire

  • SEC paves way for Texas QB target to transfer to Florida

Florida is now free to add a grad transfer this year, this after the SEC chose to change its grad transfer rule, which reduced the penalty from three years to one if the school does not meet certain academic requirements. The Southeastern Conference tweaked its graduate transfer policy Friday, June 2, 2017, making changes that would allow former Notre Dame quarterback Zaire to land at Florida. The Florida Gators were penalized past year after Mason Halter and Anthony Harrell failed to meet their academic requirements in 2015.

The ease of restrictions could impact Florida immediately. The Gators wouldn't have been able to add Zaire under the old rules because two recent grad transfers failed to make grades. And while Florida and Jim McElwain have been relatively coy about their intent to take Zaire, the Gators also have not batted down any speculation about post-spring additions.

The ban is now one year. Zaire played in 17 games during his Irish career, throwing for 816 yards and six touchdowns.

"It puts us in line with what everybody else in the country is doing, and I think that makes a lot of sense", Florida athletic director Scott Stricklin told reporters on Friday.

UK: Manchester attack investigation still at 'full tilt'
Only the straps of the rucksack - a bag containing tricyclic acetone peroxide, bolts and nails - are visible in the pictures. Grande said she would return to Manchester to do a benefit show to raise money for the victims and their families.

The reason for the wait is to see what potential policies an NCAA transfer working group recommends on the issue. Graduate transfers from one SEC school to another will still have to sit out a year unless the league grants the student-athlete a waiver.

But graduate transfers were also a burr that annoyed Alabama coach Nick Saban last offseason. "If it happens it happens and we'll all forward".

-Sankey said the league supports a concept identified by the American Football Coaches Association that would allow football players to play four games and not lose a year of eligibility. There's a positive view of the concept.
