NCAA basketball changes: Undrafted players can return to school

The group addressed the NCAA, AAU basketball, the NBA and its players' union, for contributing to "a crisis in college basketball (that) is foremost a problem of failed accountability and lax responsibility".

"This change is effective if/when the NBA and NBPA make an expected rule change, which would make undrafted student-athletes who return to college after the draft ineligible for the NBA until the end of the next college basketball season", the NCAA wrote.

First, it will allow players who have "request (ed) an Undergraduate Advisory Committee evaluation, participate (d) in the NBA combine and aren't drafted" to return to school and participate in college basketball again. That player that is not selected would have to inform their schools by 5 p.m. the following Monday after the NBA Draft takes place. For instance, student-athletes can make up to five official visits during their junior year of high school and another five visits during their senior year.

I'm uneasy the NCAA wants to limit access to agents to those they define as "elite".

Kids talented enough to play for the top programs - the Power 5 schools, plus the Villanovas, Gonzagas, etc. - are there to audition for the National Basketball Association.

Most of the changes take effect beginning this school year. Athletes returning to school would have to demonstrate need for assistance.

Additionally, the NCAA will require more transparency about the financial relationships between apparel companies and their clients, including universities, amateur teams and events the companies sponsor. The NCAA will establish a fund to assist schools otherwise unable to provide this aid. However, it's also not appropriate for the NCAA to impede that pursuit, and some of these rules have previously been so outdated that they interfered with making the best decisions. The NCAA now will also be able to use information obtained in outside investigations - such as the FBI - to aid in its own probes and also will now hold school presidents and chancellors personally accountable for their athletic departments following the rules.

In addition, school presidents and athletics staff will be required to commit "contractually" to cooperate fully with investigations. "We're not in a position to try to say who gets an agent and who does not'". "I think the changes we've adopted. will have a positive impact on college basketball and more importantly perhaps on the student-athletes that compete in collegiate basketball".
