New NCAA College Basketball Rule to Allow Undrafted Players to Return to School

The game is changing.

The NCAA just announced a rule change that will allow college basketball players to return to school if they are not selected in the NBA draft.

According to the new rule, players who participate in the NBA combine are able to return if they notify their university’s athletic director by 5 p.m. the Monday after the NBA draft.

Previously, players could only maintain eligibility if they withdrew from the draft within 10 days of the NBA combine. In addition to that rule change, the NCAA introduced alterations to other college basketball bylaws impacting players, coaches, and staff.

Details were shared in a media release by the NCAA.

NCAA college basketball rule changes announced on Wednesday, August 8.

The changes announced on Wednesday are the first to be made since last year’s corruption investigation.

These adjustments come as game changers for players who would like to explore the draft without feeling as if they are taking a huge risk.

All changes are retroactively in effect as of Aug. 1.
