NCAA adopts college basketball reforms for draft, recruiting

The NCAA announced major rule changes for college basketball Wednesday. College players would have to request an evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee on their draft prospects.

USA Basketball doesn't have the infrastructure or interest in accepting the role of evaluating the nation's top prospects for a yet-to-be-determined number of players who will annually be allowed to sign with agents at the end of their junior years, sources told ESPN.

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.

Agents would be allowed to cover minimal expenses such as meals and transportation tied to meetings or workouts with pro teams.

Now, players can go through the draft and have the ability to return to school if they go undrafted, as long as they inform the school's athletic director by 5 p.m. the Monday after the draft. They can also attend events during the last two weekends in June but only if the event sare approved by the Nation Federation of State High School Associations, organized by groups affiliated with high schools, and occur at a middle school, high school or college. These changes will also make the NCAA investigations and infractions process more efficient, setting stronger penalties for schools or individuals who violate NCAA rules to deter future violations and bringing independent investigators to the table to make decisions and enforce rules.

Prosecutors objected and Gates never answered the question. "I thought it was a lower amount", Gates said Wednesday. Ellis III has interrupted prosecutors throughout the trial to encourage them to speed things along.

Most of the changes take effect beginning this school year.

If coaches and staff are making any money off an outside company - like an "apparel company" - they will have to report that to their schools, too.

Moreover, with the level that head Texas basketball coach Shaka Smart has recruited at in recent years, the Horns could see these rule changes impact more immensely talented commits to the program.

"We will review the NCAA's planned reforms and continue to assess, along with our players' association, the potential for any related NBA rules changes", NBA spokesman Tim Frank said.
