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.
