Agents Land a Place in NCAA Rule Reforms AP
The NCAA announced that undrafted college basketball players may return to school in the future as part of a series of rule changes made public Wednesday.
While this will be irrelevant for players like Zion Williamson, Nassir Little, Shareef O'Neal, and Romeo Langford, who have already committed to schools - others high school prospects can soon hire agents in hopes to a swift move to the NBA Draft.
Student-athletes can now take up to 15 official visits, which begins August 1 before their junior year.
College players can be represented by an agent beginning after any basketball season if they request an evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee. Multiple reporters began relaying information about the policy, which allows players to hire an agent, go through the draft process and combine, and return to school if they go undrafted. "Also, schools are required to cooperate fully during NCAA investigations and take appropriate corrective action".
However, the agents must be certified by the NCAA.
Division I schools are now also bound to pay for tuition, fees and books for those players who left school and later returned to earn their degree, provided the player was on scholarship, fewer than 10 years have passed since leaving school and the player had been enrolled in the school for at least two years.
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". The new rules also allow for heavier punishments, like longer head coach suspensions and stronger 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.
