NBA, USA Basketball Blindsided By NCAA's Proposed 'Elite' Prospect Rule

FGCU v UNC

The rules would also allow elite high school players to work with an agent if the National Basketball Association removes its one-and-done rule.

The changes reflect the recommendations made in April by the Rice Commission and include guidance on summer recruiting camps, agent access for players and stiffer penalties for rule breakers. Athletes can also take five beyond October 15 after their high school graduation.

The NCAA on Wednesday announced sweeping changes regarding college basketball eligibility, agents and other reforms in response to both the FBI investigation into alleged college basketball corruption a year ago and the April recommendations by the Commission on College Basketball.

If the NBA allows high school students to enter its draft, elite high school senior basketball players (as determined by United States of America basketball) will be allowed to sign with an agent. "Agents aren't gonna run around and sign guys and spend money for players that they don't think are gonna make it".

According to the new rule, which would become effective if the NBA and its players association make an "expected rule change", those undrafted that participate in the NBA combine and request an Undergraduate Advisory Committee evaluation may return to school.

Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer added that Boateng "would be missed" if he left, while David Alaba echoed those remarks. Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with the vastly experienced Germany global .

We remain committed to promoting fairness in college sports and creating an environment that will champion the success of student-athletes. The NCAA is establishing a fund to assist schools in this endeavor.

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.

The NCAA announced Wednesday that its Board of Governors and Division I Board of Directors have adopted numerous proposals, including changes to the enforcement process for rules violations and allowing NCAA-certified agents to work with college basketball players who test the waters in declaring for the NBA draft.

In addition, there have also been changes to the current recruiting rules.
