    UF granted him a full release. He can go anywhere and play right away.

    That’s not within UF’s control.

    He has to qualify and be offered elsewhere, but I think the poster was stating that Florida placed no restrictions on his transfer options.

    I don’t believe that Florida can waive the one-year sit out requirement imposed by the NCAA.

    Stokes (or anyone else) would need to get a waiver from the NCAA to play immediately (there might also be conference restrictions, depending on where he goes, but since he's almost certainly leaving the SEC I don't think that comes into play). The NCAA is infinitely more likely to grant such a waiver when the original school doesn't object, but Stokes would still need to cite a specific reason outlined in NCAA rules.

    I gotcha. I thought he was referring to restrictions such as, not being able to transfer to another SEC school. I didn’t read the second line of his post.
    You are correct- Florida can’t override ncaa sit-out requirements.

    It it does raise an interesting question: What if a school basically cuts a kid... doesn’t need him and decides not to renew his scholarship? Does that kid still need to sit out? If not, I guess the school can somewhat waive the sit-out requirement but categorizing the transfer as something different.

    Word is is that if a player claims mental distress (depression, home sickness, etc.) he or she is very likely to get a waiver to play elsewhere immediately.

    I am of the belief that Stokes has some skills but they are limited.

    He has a ton of skills, they’re just at offensive tackle

    I mean any kind of bullshit will get you there. I hear that Brenton Cox was with Justin Fields when Fields heard racist statements, so Cox should be good to go. /S
