Should undrafted college basketball players be allowed to return to the NCAA?

The Commission on College Basketball made its recommendations to the NCAA in the wake of multiple corruption scandals rocking the sport. One of those suggestions is allowing undrafted college players to return to their respective schools to play. The commission feels this allows players to clearly assess their standing with the NBA. Others feel that the rule change would negatively affect college recruiting and hurt the sport. What do you think? 🏀

The NCAA has been so wrapped up in protecting this myth of "amateurism" it forgot that the main mission of the organization should be to protect these athletes and give them the tools to be the best people possible. These players should be allowed to definitively know where they stand in the NBA draft. 

If student-athletes don't get drafted, they should be welcomed back with open arms to improve themselves as athletes and as people. Depriving of them of that opportunity is hypocritical and it needs to change. Here is Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr with more:

What’s the harm? We talk about amateurism and all this stuff, but if you’re truly trying to do what’s right for the kid, and the kid declares for the draft and doesn’t get drafted, you know what? Welcome him back. Do something good for the kids.

The Commission on College Basketball recommended the allowance of college players back to play for their schools. That would be a disaster. Like it or not, decisions have consequences. If a player thinks they are ready for the pros, despite all the data and information that might say otherwise, that athlete does not deserve a safety net for poor decision making. That is not what reality is about. 

These players have plenty of chances to assess whether they are ready for the pros. They get feedback from coaches, NBA scouts, and NBA teams. They even have a chance to declare for the draft to get sized up and change their mind if they don't sign with an agent. That's already enough opportunity to make a decision. Let them live with that decision because choices come with consequences. That's just the way of life.
