This will result in fewer kids who stick around and then transfer to play a fifth year elsewhere, because that NCAA rule is significantly affecting ND's ability to sign larger classes. ND absolutely owes it to every kid who signs a chance to earn their degree. It absolutely does not owe them preserving their eligibility so they can play another year somewhere else after that.Moving forward and reading between the lines, I think you will see only offense and defense linemen routinely redshirting down the line, with skill position players on both offense and defense being thrown into the fire early to see what they have.
