ncaa bull&$#%#&@!

all this crap the ncaa pulls every year with basketball recruits is petty. most of these guys are good kids that just want to play basketball. a good portion of them never have any direct dealing with boosters, its parents most of the time. somehow the ncaa sees fit to punish these kids for something thats not in there control, for example enes kanter, and shabazz muhammad. do everyone a favor ncaa and stop crying over petty &$#%#&@! and let these kids play.

Kanter is a different case

Kanter is a different case from the US kids. He DID play professionally in Turkey.

And all of NCAA division I

And all of NCAA division I players are playing professionally now, they just don't get paid. Everyone else related to the program gets paid. The head of the NCAA gets a million dollar salary. The teams sell tickets, jerseys and have tv contracts. It all looks like a professional for profit business to me. But it gets free labor to make up the product.

Biggest scam going right now.

The university I'm

The university I'm transferring to is south Carolina university. Tuition is 40,000 a year. Board is 5,000 a year. Food is 3,000 a year. Books around 1,000. When you add it up these players are getting paid indirectly about 50k+ a year. I understand the NCAA makes a ton off of these guys but look what is covered just for them playing basketball.

It's not free labor. Tuition

It's not free labor. Tuition and board all paid isn't cheap. Plus the players r benefitting from the national exposure. Why do you think these players turn down the right to be paid pros and decide to go to the marketing machine that is college ball?

They should stop focusing on

They should stop focusing on these violations by recruits/people close to them and focus on more important scandals, such as the recent UNC and Duke scandals (sorry fans of these teams, just examples). They punish guys like Shabazz/Kanter/others but let powerhouse schools get off scott free.

kanter

kanter paid back all the money he received in turkey and more. they still would not let him play and slowed his developement because of that.

Getting a full ride to go to

Getting a full ride to go to college is so underrated.

For one-and-dones, that doesn't matter to them. Why is college debt such a big deal? Because it's damn expensive and the numbers can be staggering. Athletes and exceptional students don't have to worry about that.

Which is why I think they should allow players should either go from H.S to the draft or stay in college for three years. Those that want the free education or develop their skills before the NBA go for it while the one-and-dones that see college basketball as a speed bump to the NBA can just go from Oak Hill Academy to the Draft.
