NCAA announces major rule changes coming to college basketball

However, the agents must be certified by the NCAA.

Wednesday, the NCAA announced basketball players will have more freedom and flexibility about their status, including allowing undrafted players to return to school.

Regarding the NBA Draft, college players who have requested an Undergraduate Advisory Committee evaluation, go through the draft but are not taken can return to school as long as they notify the school's athletic director of their intent by 5 p.m. the Monday after the draft.

If the NBA allows high school students to enter its draft, elite high school senior basketball players (as determined by U.S. basketball) will be allowed to sign with an agent.

This new NCAA rule for both college basketball and the NBA Draft should take effect by the 2020 or 2021 off-seasons. It'll also help some players get better development and become more well-rounded before getting their chance to shine in the National Basketball Association.

Missing in the NCAA's package of rule changes is anything to do with pay for players, a wish from many in the college sports community and the inspiration for a multitude of opinion pieces over the years.

"I think the concepts are good in theory, but someone would have to explain to me why USA Basketball gets to determine who gets to have an agent".

The NCAA and its member schools are part of the broader higher education community, and today's actions renew our commitment to our core goal - preparing students for a lifetime of opportunity.

In addition, school presidents and athletics staff will be required to commit "contractually" to cooperate fully with investigations. "Those who break rules face stronger penalties, including longer postseason bans, longer head coach suspensions, increased recruiting restrictions and additional fines".

Rice said the vast majority of schools play by the rules but a "win at all cost" approach by others who have been inadequately punished must be changed. "I don't think it addresses any of the issues in college basketball".
