    His backup plan does not require him to transfer.

    Wait, what? Not DM??!
    There's a semi-no/no about non-grad transferring within the ACC. It's very, very, very rare.

    Not accurate. Cam Johnson transferred from Pitt to UNC last year (which eliminated any chance of Pitt even being semi-competitive last year). Our own Keyshawn is considering L'ville. Grad transfers can and will go anywhere.

    Regular (undergrad) transfers have to lose a year of playing eligibility if they transfer within the ACC. Also they are not eligible for athletic financial aid at the new school if they were getting it at their old school in the year prior to transfer. That really makes within conference transfers undesirable for the player. That is the conference rules that enforces the "semi no/no.

    This does not apply to grad student transfers between teams in the ACC. They are eligible immediately.

    Y7 is transferring as an undergrad. If he had transferred to Wake, he would have to pay his own way for a year, not be able to play until fall 2019 and would lose the 2018-2019 year of eligibility to play. He would only be able to play a total of three years. At Georgetown he will be eligible to play in fall 2019 after sitting out the 2018-2019 basketball season, and he could be on athletic scholarship during the 2018-2019 season. He would be able to play a total of four years.

    Cam Johnson left Pitt with his degree. He was injured his first year at Pitt and was granted a medical redshirt. So he was a grad student transfer to UNC. Therefore immediately eligible.
    From his bio on the UNC official web site:

    CAREER
    Graduated with honors from the University of Pittsburgh in three years with a degree in communications • Working toward his master’s degree in UNC’s exercise and sport science sports administration graduate master’s program • Two-time Academic All-ACC team selection • Earned CoSIDA Academic all-district honors in 2017 • Made 34 starts in 73 games over two full seasons (plus eight games as a freshman before suffering a season-ending injury) for the Panthers • Played his first two seasons for head coach Jamie Dixon and 2016-17 for Kevin Stallings • Career stats at Pitt include 583 points, 217 rebounds and 97 assists • Made 116 three-pointers and shot 39.9 percent (116 of 291) from three-point range.

    Keyshawn is leaving Wake with a degree and will be a grad transfer.

    I don't think this is accurate. It is my understanding that the reason guys don't transfer within the ACC is because you lose a year of eligibility. I don't think you have to sit a 2nd year, you just lose a year of eligibility in the year you sit out. So you can only play 3 total seasons instead of 4.

    You are correct. That is a change since I last paid attention to that issue.

    It is only a one year sit out. It does count as a year of eligibility "used"

    However, the within conference transfer is much more difficult because the student athlete cannot receive athletically related financial aid at the new school until he has completed a year there, if he was receiving athletically related financial aid at his previous school in the academic year prior to the transfer. That means pay your own way at a new school following a within the conference transfer and lose a year of eligibility while doing it.
