NCAA tweaks transfer guidelines
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The NCAA is putting a restriction on athletes who want to play immediately after changing schools to be closer to an ailing or injured family member.
The NCAA said Friday that the athlete must choose a new school within 100 miles of the family member if they want to play right away. Otherwise, they will need to sit out a year as usual.
The NCAA said it was making the changes amid concerns that waiver decisions were not consistent from case to case.
