Ability to Recruit Bacone Student-Athletes
June 12, 2018 - Due to uncertainty regarding its ability to offer classes this fall, Bacone College (Muskogee, Okla.) is granting a written release and full permission to contact Bacone’s student-athletes, effective immediately. This does not mean that a decision has been reached about Bacone’s future as an institution or athletics department, so at this time there are no changes to the 2018-19 schedules.
According to NAIA transfer regulations, this now means Bacone student-athletes shall have the 16 calendar weeks residency requirement waived for participation in that same sport, provided the student has a cumulative minimum overall GPA of 2.000 (on a 4.000 scale) from all previously attended institutions of higher learning.
The Sooner Athletic Conference (SAC) has decided to waive the SAC Intra-Conference Transfer Rule for all Bacone student-athletes meaning there are no transfer restrictions for Bacone student-athletes who transfer to another SAC school.
For more information about the SAC waiver or intra-conference transfer rule, contact SAC Commissioner Stan Wagnon at email@example.com. Student-athletes are encouraged to contact Bacone’s registrar’s office to request transcript copies as soon as possible.
