    According to a NCAA site, transfers do not sign another NLOI. High schoolers sign a National Letter of Intent.

    I don't know how up to date and accurate the 247 portal page is but they have Ezzard listed as sitting one. As in not even applied for waiver yet. Maybe he can't apply until he's enrolled.

    Edit: Just checked and Fields is listed as immediate now so it's updated regularly apparently.

    Did Fields submit a medical waiver for a hurt vag? Trying to understand his justification for immediate eligibility.

    He claims someone used a racial slur while at uGA. Seriously.

    This is what was on twitter

    So, to recap: someone in the stadium allegedly drops n-bombs (in support of Fields) that Fields doesn't even hear and he can use that as justification to transfer and play immediately.

    If they grant Fields' transfer, every player's waiver should be granted.

    He was the star baseball player so they were fellow athletes. The baseball player was expelled.

    So why does Fields get the waiver if the problem was expelled ?

    And his sister is still at UGA. Clearly they really feel strongly about it being a hostile environment.

    This! Either all or none. As far as Ezzard is concerned, if he is as good as I think he is, he will only be here a couple of years anyway.

    All joking aside, isn't Ezzard an automatic waiver because he had a coaching change?

    He did hint he'd be playing. There must have been discussions with staff where we have gotten positive feedback on status

    I like how the NCAA's official website has old rules for eligibility and transfer still posted as "current".

    http://www.ncaa.org/student-athletes/current/transfer-terms

    The new rules are that you're allowed to transfer with no requirement to sit out if:
    • You earned a degree
    • Your head coach resigns or is fired (with the exception that you have to sit out a year if you transfer to a school employing the former coach)
    • Your school receives an NCAA imposed post-season ban
    • Your school did not give you an athletic scholarship
    • Then there's a general "other" requirement which requires NCAA approval

    I want his waiver NOW.

    Does it have to wait until his enrollment?
