Question about the rules for 5th year transfers

There has been some speculation that Golson may play for another college team next year if he is able to graduate by May 2015.

If he intends to do that, is there a deadline for declaring his intent to transfer to another school? Is it before or after National Signing Day?

One of the worst possible scenarios I can imagine is if someone like Harbaugh manages to poach Wimbush, and Golson decides to transfer, leaving ND with only Zaire and Kaiser as the only scholarship QBs on the roster next year.


I don't think there is a deadline. He can transfer to

another FBS school and play next year if he graduates from ND and enrolls in a graduate program at the new school. The graduate program can't be offered at ND, and ND has to release him.
He can transfer to a FCS school without sitting out the year.


Thank you for the clear explanation. *
