STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - The NCAA rule connected to Penn State's sanctions that had the earliest impact on the football program is set to expire.
Preseason camp begins Monday. Once a Nittany Lion takes part, that player no longer has the option to transfer without having to sit out a year at a new school.
Athletic department officials this week and at Big Ten media days in Chicago last week had initially said the deadline was today, Aug. 1.
They now say Monday is the day. The transfer component officially expires whenever a Nittany Lion takes part in preseason practice.
Regardless, Penn State is soon to return to a level playing field on that front with other FBS schools a year after the NCAA levied its landmark penalties for the Jerry Sandusky scandal.
