The NCAA's transformation committee on Thursday announced recommendations that would provide athletes with windows to enter the transfer portal each year and changes to the current infraction process designed to result in faster outcomes.

According to the NCAA's news release, the transfer recommendations are intended to stabilizing the transfer environment. The NCAA didn't give any information as to what the specific transfer windows would be or how it would hold the school accountable.

There are no specific windows for movement on the NCAA's transfer portal. To enter the portal, players must notify schools by May 1 of each year.

According to Todd Berry, the executive director of the American Football Coaches Association, his group would like to see two transfer windows for players to enter their names in the portal, one from the final Sunday in November until the early signing date in December, and another from April. There would be contact periods in both windows. The players would only have to enter the portal during certain times.

The NCAA's lengthy infraction process is being modernized by the transformation committee. It has traditionally been a painfully slow process that punishes programs and coaches long after the offenders have left.

The proposed changes would promote time- efficient outcomes, use a more modernized set of principles and rules, and hold accountable those who are directly involved in the rule-breaking while minimizing impact on student-athletes who were not involved. Incentives to cooperate, additional investigative tools, and more flexibility within confidentiality rules are some of the changes to the process.

Greg Sankey is the commissioner of the SEC.

College sports face many challenges, and we need to move quickly to update our rules and make infraction more efficient so we can focus our attention on Division I membership expectations and, most importantly, benefits for student-athletes," board chair and Georgia president Jere Morehead said.

The board will meet on June 30. If it supports them, they will be sent to the council for feedback. The recommendations could be approved by the board.
