ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski rips NCAA for changing rules without consulting National Basketball Association

NCAA basketball changes: Undrafted players can return to school | SI.com

That was one of the recommendations from the Rice Commission appointed in the wake of an FBI investigation into corruption within college basketball.

College players who declare early for the National Basketball Association draft but are not selected will have the option of returning to school, provided the National Basketball Association makes an expected rule change about draft eligibility, according to the NCAA. While that may seem like a big deal on its face, the fact that it's.

Among the changes is the reversal of a rule that has long separated amateur from pro athletes. Previously, players who hired an agent lost their eligibility.

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.

"Elite" high school prospects will be identified by USA Basketball.

- Prospective player agents must be "certified by an NCAA program with standards for behavior and consequences for violations".

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.

- Division I schools will be required to pay for tuition and related expenses for men's and women's basketball players who leave school and return later to earn their degree. For instance, student-athletes can make up to five official visits during their junior year of high school and another five visits during their senior year.

The statement also confirmed the ultimate responsibility for rules compliance rests not with the head coach and/or athletic director, but university administration: "University presidents and chancellors will be personally accountable for their athletics program following the rules".

Missing in the NCAA's package of rule changes is anything to do with pay for players, a wish from many in the college sports community and the inspiration for a multitude of opinion pieces over the years.
