If the NCAA has any brains, they will drop this idiotic rule tomorrow for all states and not force them to wait till 2023.

Oh and Illinois, please be next! This state has been a joke in terms of college athletics since the beginning of time.

They should do it if they want to save NCAA basketball before more players look for pro deals overseas instead.

So no Californian schools in the College Football Playoffs or Final Four after 2023 unless the NCAA change their rules.

So things will basically be the same as they are today

I thought the laws were to make things illegal...

That is absolutely not in danger of happening. What, 1 top 10 recruit in the last decade have elected to go overseas (Emmanuel Mudiay)? And look at how that worked out for him... guess he's still in the league but he's not exactly lighting it up nor does he have teams lining up to give him a big contract.

The NCAA and their crazy threats.

Like they're really going to have march madness without any California teams. Especially when most of the top recruits will pick California schools.

What states are going to sit around and see all of the best recruits go to California school without passing similar laws.

It shouldn't have taken a new law to make this happen, the NCAA should have made the change years ago.

RJ Hampton and Lamelo Ball are playing the NBL this year on pro deals and they're both top prospects. Lets face it, if you're telling a player out of high school whether he could develop nicely in a pro league or go unpaid in the NCAA, i think the choice is pretty clear.

The system is completely antiquated.

On the flip side, does this mean that parasite sports agencies like Klutch Sports (Lebron & Rich Paul) can get their hooks into these kids at an earlier age, and hook them up with endorsements and such? I mean, there's always somebody trying to make a buck off these prodigies. In addition to the NCAA, it will be Lebron.

Okay, so 3 players out of 1,000. Not sure the NCAA really cares.

Maybe if those players start to go on having successful NBA careers then they'll care, but until that happen, I don't think they will. You say the choice is clear but basically no one has made that choice.

Exactly. This is a win for California schools. The NCAA is not going to win this one.

Laws are set to state policy. Internal policies (company, school, etc) apply unless they conflict with a law.

RJ Hampton just went to the NBL and he was a top 5 recruit.

last year Darius Bazley opted for the not playing at all for a year. Mitchell Robinson the year before him.

also guys like Jalen Lecque and Anfernee Simons reclassified and didn't play college ball at all....

its obvious more and more players are looking for other options.

Did you read the comments section in that link? People seem to hate the idea of players making money while in college. SMH
