It appears the SEC is being scared straight by the goings on at Baylor. The Jonathan Taylor rule may be expanded.
For the second straight year, the SEC at its spring meetings will take up the issue of serious misconduct of prospective transfers. Presidents and athletic directors next week will consider adding additional language to a league rule adopted last year.
The league already barred transfers who were disciplined at a previous institution for sexual assault, domestic violence or other forms of sexual violence from playing at a league school and now would add language to include “dating violence or stalking and conduct that raises serious concerns about the safety of others.”
The language recommended by a student-athlete conduct working group expands the scope to include not just transfers dismissed from a school but it would also bar transfers who were convicted of, pled guilty or no contest to a serious misconduct felony.
Man, that could put a real crimp on recruiting at Second Chance U.
