If the AD releases all the players why should the A10 impose a 2 year wait if they want to transfer within the league?
Conference are allowed to impose more restrictive rules than the NCAA. An appeal process is available, but ADs would have to agree to waiving the 2 year intra-conference transfer in the A10. The A10 also stipulates that no athletic financial aid may be provided for 1 year to an intra-conference transfer.
"Of the colleges that offered me scholarships, I think St. Joe's had the best plan for me," the 6-foot-1, 185-pounder said. "Another thing was that the coaches treated me as an individual, and didn't focus on my dad's career at the school."
The admin obviously thinks of him as an individual too - no focus on Dad’s career at the school.
