NCAA reveals ruling on eliminating yearly 25-scholarship limit in college football
The transfer portal is a part of the game of college football these days, whether coaches and fans like it or not.
With so many players moving every offseason, the 25-scholarship-per-year cap has been hurting some coaches as they try to assemble their rosters.
On Wednesday, the NCAA Division I Council acted to alleviate those concerns. Per a tweet, the NCAA is doing away with the 25-scholarship limit for the next 2 years. The only thing that matters is that teams have only 85 scholarships to use:

How will this affect rosters across the FBS over the next two years? We’ll see if coaches can put these new relaxed limits to good use.
