Pac-12 taskforce: End of one-and-done, more access to agents
A Pac-12 taskforce on reforming college basketball is recommending an end to the NBA’s one-and-done rule, allowing players to return to school even after they are drafted, and that the NCAA facilitate access to agents for high school players.
The Pac-12 announced the recommendations from its task force on Tuesday and its report has been sent to the NCAA’s commission on college basketball, headed by former Secretary of State and Stanford University Provost Condoleezza Rice.
The recommendations made by the taskforce hit on the major issues identified by the NCAA as areas where reform is needed in the wake of a federal investigation into corruption in college basketball.
The Pac-12 taskforce also recommended the creation of an independent enforcement unit to investigate some cases of major NCAA rules violations.
