Auburn Morning Rush: Harsin supports SEC transfer deadline, big recruiting weekend




 

It is going to be a busy weekend on the Plains.

Bryan Harsin and the rest of the SEC coaches are in Florida for the annual spring meetings. And there is a divide on a proposed rule change regarding the deadline surrounding intraconference transfers.

This weekend Auburn will be packed with visitors as several key targets are taking official visits to check out the campus and meet with the coaching staff.

If they have some free time as they may want to swing by Plainsman Park as Auburn will play host to FSU, UCLA, and Southeastern Louisiana in the NCAA regional.

Here are the top news stories you need to know as you start your Friday.

While there are far fewer restrictions around transferring in today's college football, the SEC still has one important one about intraconference transfers.

Currently, if a player transfers within the SEC they must have entered the portal by Feb. 1 to be immediately eligible. Nick Saban and Alabama would like to push the deadline back to May 1. That is the same date as the NCAA's deadline for transfers outside the SEC.

Harsin thinks the current deadline works just well and does not need to be adjusted.

"I didn't think what we did this year was a bad model," Harsin told Bennett Durando of the Montgomery Advertiser. "And we had that discussion before. … We've met on this stuff before. We've had conversations about some of the rules that are in place right now. There's reasons why we did it. And I think they were thought out. I thought there were good reasons why, and it wasn't just for a one-year deal. It was really like, this could be the model for some time. I don't think that's a bad model that we have."

He is not the only one against the change, Ole Miss' Lane Kiffin and Georgia's Kirby Smart have also pushed back on the proposal.
