The NCAA has amended its agent certification requirements, which previously said an agent must obtain a bachelor’s degree to represent players testing the NBA process. On Monday, prior to the reversal, agent Rich Paul wrote an op-ed for The Athletic, calling the new requirements “unfair.”

Rich Paul on The Rich Paul Rule :

“Does anyone really believe a four-year degree is what separates an ethical person from a con artist?”

The NCAA says “…we have been made aware of several current agents who have appropriately represented former student-athletes in their professional quest and whom the National Basketball Players Association has granted waivers of its bachelor’s degree requirement.”
