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

We remain committed to promoting fairness in college sports and creating an environment that will champion the success of student-athletes.

USA Basketball doesn't have the infrastructure, nor interest in accepting the role of evaluating the nation's top prospects for a yet-to-be-determined number of players who'll annually be allowed to sign with agents at the end of their junior years, sources told ESPN.

Wednesday, the NCAA announced basketball players will have more freedom and flexibility about their status, including allowing undrafted players to return to school.

Smashdown mode forces players to choose new characters, as each elimination removes previously selected fighters from the options. For instance, if you are playing a stage from The Legend of Zelda series, then you'll be able to pick any track from that series.

If the NBA allows high school students to enter its draft, elite high school senior basketball players (as determined by U.S. basketball) will be allowed to sign with an agent. College players would have to request an evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee on their draft prospects.

- Collegiate players will now be able to participate in the NBA Draft, yet return to school if they are undrafted.

"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.

Division I schools are now also bound to pay for tuition, fees and books for those players who left school and later returned to earn their degree, provided the player was on scholarship, fewer than 10 years have passed since leaving school and the player had been enrolled in the school for at least two years.

Student-athletes can now take up to 15 official visits, which begins August 1 before their junior year. The NCAA is establishing a fund to assist schools in this endeavor.

Among the changes is the reversal of a rule that has long separated amateur from pro athletes.
