NCAA Rule Changes Give Athletes Flexibility

This week, the collegiate athletic association announced a series of major structural changes to what the NCAA will allow athletes to do as amateur players, most of which will take effect next year.

Key among the shifts, as reported by ESPN, is a rule change allowing college players to enter the NBA draft and return to school if they go un-drafted.
