NCAA basketball changes: Undrafted players can return to school

What the new NCAA rules mean for college basketball

What the new NCAA rules mean for college basketball

John Calipari, talking about the NCAA rules changes on SportsCenter, said "None of this goes into effect until the NBA and the Players Association come up with something, and I'm hearing it won't be until 2022 so we're probably wasting our breath dealing with the ins and outs of this". Athletes can also take five beyond October 15 after their high school graduation.

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

Additionally, the NCAA's Board of Governors and Division I Board of Directors will allow high school players to take more official visits to colleges, and they've introduced more rigorous certification requirements for summer basketball-related events and high school players can take more official visits to colleges.

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. However, athletes can only officially visit a school once per year. "Also, schools are required to cooperate fully during NCAA investigations and take appropriate corrective action".

The Rice Commission announced its recommendations in April, laying out a future of the sport that looked to eliminate the type of malfeasance that attracted a federal investigation.

The initial response was that it appeared as though, for the first time in a long time, the NCAA had done something good that benefits the players.

ESPN's Jonathan Givony was trying to get to the bottom of the rule changes, and he initially noted some confusion about what was going on.

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".
