So what happens if a D2 athlete transfers to D1?
Assume 2019 high school grad. Played 25 games spring 2020 (true freshman season.) Allowed another season of eligibility, so lets call him a Corona Freshman when he plays the 2020-21 season. If he then wants to transfer to D1, he has to sit out a year, so 2021-22 is his year-of-residency season, and his actual 3rd year on the clock. But he has 3 seasons of eligibility remaining.
By transferring D2 to D1, does he now get the extra year of participation, or would he still be limited to the original 5 year/10 semester clock?
