NCAA adopts college basketball reforms for draft, recruiting

What the new NCAA rules mean for college basketball

Basketball student athletes can now take up 10 official visits between Aug.1 of their junior year and October 15 after their high school graduation: five as a junior and five as senior, according to the NCAA.

Agents can pay for meals and transportation for players and their families if the expenses are related to the agent selection process.

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

According to a news release by the NCAA, the "NBA draft flexibility rule will go into effect when the NBA or the NBPA make an expected rule change, which would make undrafted student-athletes who return to college after the draft ineligible for the NBA until the end of the next college basketball season".

College basketball players who participate in the NBA combine and go undrafted will be allowed to return to school and play as part of sweeping NCAA reforms in the wake of a corruption scandal. College players would have to request an evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee on their draft prospects.

The NCAA unveiled several rule changes Wednesday, in hopes of eradicating - or more realistically, reducing - the significant amount of corruption, which recently stained the sport and was exposed past year through an FBI investigation. "Agents aren't gonna run around and sign guys and spend money for players that they don't think are gonna make it".

Here's to hoping that the NCAA and National Basketball Association can work together to create new rules that make sense for everybody involved.

One other notable change specifies the appointment of two independent groups to oversee the investigation of cases defined as "complex". The NCAA now will also be able to use information obtained in outside investigations - such as the FBI - to aid in its own probes and also will now hold school presidents and chancellors personally accountable for their athletic departments following the rules.

In addition, school presidents and athletics staff will be required to commit "contractually" to cooperate fully with investigations.
