Athletes will be allowed more college-paid visits, which can begin as soon as August 1 the summer before their junior year.

According to ESPN, another significant change that was adopted by the NCAA's Board of Governors and Division I Board of Directors is allowing "elite" high school basketball recruits and players to be represented by agents who are certified by the NCAA while still playing.

First, it will allow players who have "request (ed) an Undergraduate Advisory Committee evaluation, participate (d) in the NBA combine and aren't drafted" to return to school and participate in college basketball again.

The NCAA made a number of rule changes Wednesday that could have an impact on the Kansas men's basketball team. 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.

The NCAA and its member schools are part of the broader higher education community, and today's actions renew our commitment to our core goal - preparing students for a lifetime of opportunity. On the other hand, those players will be allowed to take more official visits to campuses, which the schools will pay for.

Israel and Hamas Clash Again, Threatening Peace Talks
Gaza's residents have been protesting every week since 30 March at Israel's border fence, which have been violently suppressed. A video has been circulating on social media that captures the terror that Israelis endure when Hamas launches rockets at them.

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.

On Tuesday, the NCAA made its first steps in reaction to an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe that identified corruption in basketball, and it has huge implications for high school players.

Schools found to be in violation of NCAA rules face stricter penalties, including longer postseason bans (up to five years), coach suspensions (potentially beyond one season), employment limitations, recruiting restrictions and loss of revenue from basketball.

That relationship must end if the player decides to go to college.
