Change is coming to college basketball.

That was one of the recommendations from the Rice Commission appointed in the wake of an FBI investigation into corruption within 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.

The NCAA announced several new policies and rules today, including that players will now be allowed to return to school if they declare for the National Basketball Association draft but are not selected. That relationship must end if the player decides to go to college. 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.

Regarding the NBA Draft, college players who have requested an Undergraduate Advisory Committee evaluation, go through the draft but are not taken can return to school as long as they notify the school's athletic director of their intent by 5 p.m. the Monday after the draft.

Missing in the NCAA's package of rule changes is anything to do with pay for players, a wish from many in the college sports community and the inspiration for a multitude of opinion pieces over the years.

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

The changes also allow the NCAA to accept during investigations outside information that has been "established by another administrative body or a commission authorized by a school". "They deserve nothing less". Partly due to that, multiple coaches were skeptical that the changes would have any impact on the sport's long-established underground. "Things have changed. I'm not sure what's improved", one coach said. It's a bunch of people sitting in a room who have never dealt with the problems.
