A rule that would allow college athletes to transfer without penalty will have to wait another year.

Wednesday a vote on the one-time transfer waiver was pushed back.

The waiver would allow student-athletes a one-time, penalty-free transfer. The NCAA worked on the legislation in February as a way to modernize the league's transfer policy. However, in April the league recommended against it calling the timing "not appropriate."

Currently players can seek other waivers to grant players immediate eligibility, but those who do not qualify must then sit a season before being able to play for their new teams. This new rule would allow athletes one-time free transfer.
Athalon Sports reports that the rule will be readdressed at the NCAA convention in January.
