NCAA To Allow 'Elite' Prospects To Hire Agents

NCAA To Allow 'Elite' Prospects To Hire Agents”

The NCAA announced major rule changes for college basketball Wednesday.

A move like this will facilitate contact between NBA teams and high school prospects directly, while allowing the NCAA to retain its talent if players go undrafted after the league has selected its top 60 players in the NBA Draft. The rule changes are effective immediately.

The NBA and USA Basketball's compliance with the rules is crucial since the NCAA now expects them to change their course of action. A second group, which will be comprised of 15 people with backgrounds in law, higher education and sports with no affiliations to NCAA schools or conferences, will review the findings of the first group, oversee the hearing and decide penalties, if necessary.

- College basketball players who go undrafted by the NBA will be allowed to return to school and play as part of sweeping NCAA reforms in the wake of a corruption scandal. College players will also be allowed representation as soon as their seasons end if they request an evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee. The current rule only permits players to maintain eligibility if they withdraw from the draft 10 days after the National Basketball Association combine, while those who take part in the combine and go undrafted are left with the G League or the prospect of playing overseas. The NCAA is establishing a fund to assist schools in this endeavor. Athletes returning to school would have to demonstrate need for assistance.

This new rule aims to help highly touted high school players "make informed decisions about going pro".

"The September 2017 announcement of a federal investigation into fraud in college basketball recruiting made it clear the NCAA needed to make significant changes - and do so quickly", the NCAA wrote on it's website.
