NCAA To Allow Undrafted Prospects To Return To School
August 8th, 2018 at 11:28am CST by Luke Adams
The NCAA announced today that it is implementing several changes to its rules and policies in response to the federal investigation into college basketball recruiting. The list of changes being made by the NCAA is a lengthy one, and can be read in full right here. However, two tweaks to the current rules are of particular interest from an NBA perspective.

Going forward, the NCAA will allow college players who declare for the NBA draft as early entrants to keep their names in the draft and then return to school if they’re not selected. The previous system forced early entrants to make a decision within 10 days of the conclusion of the draft combine — if they remained in the draft after that point, they lost their NCAA eligibility.

In 2018, 181 college underclassmen initially declared for the draft, but more than 100 of those players withdrew their names before the final NCAA deadline. Under the new system, those players could keep their names in the NBA draft and retain their NCAA eligibility if they decide after the draft that they’re not ready to go pro. They’ll have to notify their school’s athletics director of their intent to return by the Monday after the NBA draft.

The change figures to go into effect in 2019 as long as the NBA and NBPA tweak their own rules to ensure that undrafted prospects who return to school are ineligible to play in the NBA during the following season.

In addition to that huge change, the NCAA will also allow “elite” high school basketball recruits and college players to be represented by agents. Those agents must be certified by an NCAA program with “standards for behavior and consequences for violations.”

USA Basketball will be responsible for determining whether or not a high school recruit is considered “elite” and qualifies for an agent. If and when the NBA and NCAA allow high school players to enter the draft, high-schoolers will be eligible to hire an agent beginning on July 1 before their senior year. College prospects will be eligible to hire an agent after any basketball season as long as they request an evaluation from the NBA’s undergraduate advisory committee.

While there are several other rule changes coming to NCAA basketball, these two look like they’ll have the most significant impact on potential NBA players. The new rules should give prospects more reliable information on whether or not to go pro and more flexibility to return to school if they ultimately decide they’re not ready for the next level.



well it at least makes things a little more interesting, may boost high school players tendencies to try to shine while they can

It makes a lot of sense. Frankly should've been this way a long time ago.

NCAA finally feeling the financial threat of losing their potential slave labor athletes going abroad to play instead of going to school to get paid in 'scholarships'.
HE'S USING HYPNOSIS!

The NCAA is a terrible organization making millions off of exploited unpaid labor. This act of "kindness" or "progress" does help, but it allows the NCAA to continue to make money off these guys instead of automatically losing them to Europe or the G League

Fair point, it's far from 100% altruistic from their perspective.
