    ESPN says that Oklahoma has blocked Kendall from transferring to WVU.  I didn’t realize a school could block a grad transfer.


    Following is the section on Intraconference Transfers from the Big 12 Handbook.

    I’m following up with the Big 12 to make sure I am interpreting everything correctly. Austin is not a 4-2-4 transfer (that’s from a 4 year school to a 2 year and then back to a 4 year), and he’s not a walk-on so he is subject to having to sit out a year.

    There is no section on graduate transfers in the version of the handbook I have.

    Intraconference Transfers. The eligibility of a student-athlete who transfers directly or indirectly from one Member Institution to another shall be determined by NCAA regulations and the following Conference requirements. In the event NCAA regulations require the student-athlete to complete one full academic year in residence before being eligible to compete in a sport, the student-athlete shall also forfeit one season of competition in that sport. The waiver of an NCAA transfer regulation for a student-athlete does not negate the need for a waiver of this section.

    6.3.1 4-2-4 Transfers. A 4-2-4 transfer student-athlete who is in compliance with NCAA Bylaw 14.5.6 must complete one full academic year in residence
    before being eligible to compete in a sport and forfeit one season of competition unless, in sports other than football or basketball, the AD of the
    Member Institution of initial enrollment consents in writing to the studentathlete’s enrollment at the second Member Institution. Any consent given
    relating to the indirect intraconference transfer may be unconditional or conditioned on the student-athlete completing one full academic year in residence at the second Member Institution before competing. Hearing Opportunity. If under Rule 6.3.1, the AD denies consent for a 4-2-4 transfer, the institution shall inform the student-athlete in writing that a hearing shall be provided upon request. If a hearing is requested, the hearing procedures established by the institution in conformity with NCAA legislation relating to the one-time transfer exception shall apply.

    6.3.2 Nonscholarship Student-Athlete Exception. A student-athlete who did not receive, or was not provided a written offer of, athletically-related financial aid from the previous Member Institution is not subject to the penalties
    under Rule 6.3 or Rule 6.3.1. The written offer of athletically related financial aid must be provided prior to the end of the academic year or prior to
    enrollment at the next Member Institution, whichever occurs first.

    6.3.3 Certification Form. Prior to a student-athlete’s transfer, the head coach, student-athlete and director of compliance shall sign the Rule 6.3.3
    intraconference transfer form. The form shall remain on file at such institution.


    Oklahoma may be a bit worried about having to face him 2 times but hey they can have an Alabama transfer. Bunch of criers between Oklahoma and Texas. You can’t do horns down it’s a penalty but Horns up isn’t? Gimme a break.


    Here’s the NCAA manual section which allows Oklahoma to block Kendall Martin from transferring. The operative clause is the last one:

    14.6.1 One-Time Transfer Exception. A graduate student who is enrolled in a graduate or professional school of an institution other than the institution from which he or she previously received a baccalaureate degree may participate in intercollegiate athletics if he or she fulfills the conditions of the one-time transfer exception set forth in Bylaw and has eligibility remaining per Bylaw 12.8. A graduate student who does not meet the one-time transfer exception due to the restrictions of Bylaw shall qualify for this exception, provided: (Adopted: 1/9/96 effective 8/1/96, Revised: 4/27/06, 1/6/07 effective 8/1/07, 4/28/11 effective 8/1/11, 7/31/14)

    (a) The student fulfills the remaining conditions of Bylaw;

    (b) The student has at least one season of competition remaining; and

    (c) The student’s previous institution did not renew his or her athletically related financial aid for the following academic year. One-Time Transfer Exception. The student transfers to the certifying institution from another four-year collegiate institution, and all of the following conditions are met (for graduate students, see Bylaw 14.6.1): (Revised: 1/16/93 effective 8/1/93, 1/11/94, 1/10/95, 1/9/96, 1/11/97, 11/1/00 effective 8/1/01, 4/26/01, 4/28/05 effective 8/1/05, 4/27/06 effective 10/15/06, 12/15/06, 4/27/07 effective 8/1/08, 4/29/10 effective 8/1/10, 4/22/11)

    (a) The student is a participant in a sport other than baseball, basketball, bowl subdivision football or men’s ice hockey at the institution to which the student is transferring. A participant in championship subdivision football at the institution to which the student is transferring may use this exception only if the participant transferred to the certifying institution from an institution that sponsors bowl subdivision football and has two or more seasons of competition remaining in football or the participant transfers from a Football Championship Subdivision institution that offers athletically related financial aid in football to a Football Championship Subdivision institution that does not offer athletically related financial aid in football;

    (b) The student has not transferred previously from one four-year institution unless, in the previous transfer, the student-athlete received an exception per Bylaw (discontinued/nonsponsored sport exception);

    (c) At the time of transfer to the certifying institution (see Bylaw 14.5.2), the student would have been academically eligible had he or she remained at the institution from which the student transferred, except that he or she is not required to have fulfilled the necessary percentage-of-degree requirements at the previous institution; and

    (d) If the student is transferring from an NCAA or NAIA member institution, the student’s previous institution shall certify in writing that it has no objection to the student being granted an exception to the transfer-residence requirement. If an institution receives a written request for a release from a student-athlete, the institution shall grant or deny the request within seven business days. If the institution fails to respond to the student-athlete’s written request within seven business days, the release shall be granted by default and the institution shall provide a written release to the student-athlete
