“The current transfer rule that NCAA Division I baseball utilizes was adopted for the 2007-2008 academic year. Prior to that, players could transfer and play immediately at other Division I schools.
“I remember when this change was being adopted that 27 percent of Division I baseball players transferred the year before. That is a quarter of rosters transferring to other schools."
~~From 2004-19, the number of transfers went from 27.7 percent to 24.2 and peaked at 27.8 in 2006 and dropped as low as 21.1 percent in 2016. ~~
