Agents can pay for meals and transportation for players and their families if the expenses are related to the agent selection process.

The NCAA made a major announcement on Wednesday morning when they unveiled new rules regarding basketball players entering the NBA Draft.

The agent would have to be certified by the NCAA no later than August 2020. "Agents aren't gonna run around and sign guys and spend money for players that they don't think are gonna make it".

The NCAA says that will save time since investigators would no longer have to independently confirm information outlined by other agencies or outside investigations.

The statement also confirmed the ultimate responsibility for rules compliance rests not with the head coach and/or athletic director, but university administration: "University presidents and chancellors will be personally accountable for their athletics program following the rules". Coaches and athletics staff must now also report any income over $600 from a source outside the school, such as an apparel company.
