SEC tweaks graduate transfer rules, opening door for Zaire

SEC tweaks graduate transfer rules, opening door for Zaire

The Gators faced a three-year ban from taking graduate transfers because former graduate transfers Mason Halter and Anthony Harrell failed to meet SEC academic requirements two years ago.

Florida's Jim McElwain was one of several SEC coaches this week who made the case for changing the league's graduate transfer rule.

The ease of restrictions could impact Florida immediately.

An approved rule change at SEC spring meetings could mean a Texas quarterback target is headed to Florida. If he winds up at Florida, he will compete for the Gators' starting quarteback job in the fall. In parts of three seasons with the Fighting Irish, Zaire threw for 816 yards with six passing touchdowns.

"It was early on in the grad transfer process and there were some high-profile situations ... and we kind of got out in front of everybody else", Stricklin said. "Enough time has passed, it seems wise to step back and get in line with what other leagues are doing".

The SEC tweaked its graduate transfer policy Friday, June 2, 2017, making changes that would allow former Notre Dame quarterback Malik Zaire to land at Florida.

The reason for the wait is to see what potential policies an NCAA transfer working group recommends on the issue.

But graduate transfers were also a burr that annoyed Alabama coach Nick Saban last offseason.

"That's based on the knowledge that there's opportunity for institutions to request waivers now under our current approach", Sankey said.

"If that kid has been in your program, graduated from your university, I think he should have the capability to go somewhere and play football", Smart said. 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. "There's a lot that remains to be done".
