New NCAA Basketball Rule Allows Players To Return To School If Undrafted

What the new NCAA rules mean for college basketball

The NCAA made a major announcement on Wednesday morning when they unveiled new rules regarding basketball players entering the NBA Draft.

A joint statement from NCAA leaders noted, "These changes will promote integrity in the game, strengthen accountability and prioritize the interests of student-athletes over every other factor".

In October 2017, the NCAA created a commission, led by former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, to explore the issues surrounding college basketball.

The changes include more flexibility for athletes deciding whether to pursue professional opportunities in the sport.

John Calipari, talking about the NCAA rules changes on SportsCenter, said "None of this goes into effect until the NBA and the Players Association come up with something, and I'm hearing it won't be until 2022 so we're probably wasting our breath dealing with the ins and outs of this".

"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".

In the past, if a college basketball player declared for the draft, they had until 10 days after the draft combine to return to school.

The NCAA will also allow agents to pay for a student athlete's expenses related to the agent selection process or are associated with meetings with the agent or a pro team. But what I read didn't go almost far enough in protecting the interests of the "student-athlete". While the rule changes will do little to impact the governing body's long-standing goal of "minimizing harmful outside influences" - the self-perceived and tangential "problem" that it believes resulted in four of its? assistant coaches and five others being arrested and charged in last year's Federal Bureau of Investigation probe - they will certainly have far-reaching impacts on how young basketball players are developed.

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. Athletes returning to school would have to demonstrate need for assistance. The NCAA plans to pursue more rigorous certification requirements to ensure transparency in operations and finances. "Also, schools are required to cooperate fully during NCAA investigations and take appropriate corrective action". Dan Gavitt, the NCAA's senior vice president for basketball, said event operators will have to "meet a much higher bar in order to be able to run those events".

"The intent here is to just try to reinforce that fact that university presidents are ultimately responsible for the behavior of the people involved in their athletics programs, just as they are with any other group of employees and they have to step up and take responsibilities", said Bud Peterson, chair of the NCAA Board of Governors and the president of Georgia Tech.
