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 will also be allowed representation as soon as their seasons end if they request an evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee. The rules would also allow elite high school players to work with an agent if the National Basketball Association removes its one-and-done rule.

The NCAA made waves Wednesday by announcing some rule changes that will have an effect on the NBA Draft process, but the situation has been kind of a mess due to multiple clarifications of the rules.

The agent would have to be certified by the NCAA no later than August 2020. "Agents aren't gonna run around and sign guys and spend money for players that they don't think are gonna make it". 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.

Moreover, with the level that head Texas basketball coach Shaka Smart has recruited at in recent years, the Horns could see these rule changes impact more immensely talented commits to the program. The NCAA says that will save time since investigators would no longer have to independently confirm information outlined by other agencies or outside investigations.

"Presidents and chancellors join all athletics staff in personally affirming the athletics program meets obligations for monitoring rules compliance, which is required to be eligible for the postseason", the new rules state.

Among the changes is the reversal of a rule that has long separated amateur from pro athletes.
