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.

Overall, this is a positive step to take in the world of college and professional hoops to give players more support over the course of their careers. That was one of the recommendations from the Rice Commission appointed in the wake of an FBI investigation into corruption within college basketball.
