Why the SEC passed the Malik Zaire rule

Why the SEC passed the Malik Zaire rule

That means MI could face the former Notre Dame quarterback in its September 2 season opener in Arlington. Before the rule change, Florida was unable to add a graduate transfer because two of its previous transfers - Anthony Harrell and Mason Halter - did not meet all their academic requirements as graduate students.

Until the amended rule, the SEC was the only Power Five conference with such a restriction on graduate transfers, thus putting it at a competitive disadvantage when it comes to bringing in those transfers. And while Florida and Jim McElwain have been relatively coy about their intent to take Zaire, the Gators also have not batted down any speculation about post-spring additions.

Friday's vote reduced the ban from three years to one, a proposal by the athletic directors at SEC spring meetings in Destin, Fla. If he winds up at Florida, he will compete for the Gators' starting quarteback job in the fall. Zaire had 816 passing yards and six touchdowns in limited action in three seasons in South Bend, Indiana.

Zaire reportedly has not made his final decision, and he was waiting to see whether the SEC would alter the rule before announcing his next stop. "Enough time has passed, it seems wise to step back and get in line with what other leagues are doing". Georgia suggested the legislation after Alabama initially balked at letting defensive back Maurice Smith transfer to the Bulldogs in 2016. He had been the starter for 2015, but an ankle injury in the second game of the year ended his season.

"We have an NCAA transfer working group and there's an interest in seeing what ideas might be generated nationally", Sankey said. "We've not now changed our policy, but it's one of those things that will be under discussion". There's a positive view of the concept.
