The NCAA provided some clarity on Thursday as it publicized recommendations from the Transformation Committee, including the implementation of transfer windows, could be approved as soon as early August.

Transfer windows will require that transferring athletes enter the portal during a specific time period in order to be immediately eligible to compete the following academic year. The idea is to provide clarity for both coaches and players around roster management, and administrators believe it will allow for more thought-out decision-making, instead of emotional choices based on a bad practice or an in-game benching.

The concept has been put forth and socialized over the past few months by the Transformation Committee, which has been meeting weekly. The group is also recommending changes to the NCAA infractions process to allow for speedier investigations and outcomes.

The Division I Board of Directors, which will review these recommendations at its June 30 meeting and, if the board supports them, it will then send them to the Division I Council for feedback during that group's July 20 meeting. The board's vote to approve the recommendations would then occur at its Aug. 3 meeting.

The Transformation Committee said its next priorities will be student-athlete benefits and minimum requirements for Division I membership.

"College sports continues to face many challenges, and we need to move quickly to update our rules and make infractions more efficient so we can focus our attention on Division I membership expectations and, most importantly, benefits for student-athletes," board chair Jere Morehead, president at the University of Georgia, said in a statement.
