One and done...gone?

I put this here because I think it impacts college basketball much more than the NBA.

Several reports that the NBA's "One and Done" rule is coming to an end.

How will this impact college recruiting?

Does the NCAA need to adapt the rules to allow players to go to college after the draft if they are undrafted or don't like their draft position?

Who cares what happens to any college basketball programs, this is exactly how it should be and the same with football, there should not be any restrictions on players wanting to go pro, the colleges do not own them.

It's not a college rule holding them back, it's been an NBA and NFL rule.

While there are occasionally players somewhat ready for the NBA out of high school. I seriously doubt NFL teams think any 17 or 18 year old is worth the investment or the risk financially.

Semantics.  

And it has nothing to do with being ready or not, it is about choice.

Not really, since the NFL and NBA serve their own interest first, second and last. You can't lay one and done or three years at the feet of colleges.

The NFL would change the rule tomorrow if the owners thought high school seniors could help out their teams. 

We all don't get choices just because we want them, most of us have to prove ourselves either academically or in business to open up our choices. It's no different for high school football players having to prove themselves against stronger competition before being given a choice to turn pro or not.

The NFL and NBA use colleges as their "MLB Farm System" and the colleges are willing partners in the abuse.  And where else is someone going to go to play high level football/basketball when they graduate from high school.

We need a LIV Football and a LIV Basketball and sooner or later it will probably happen.

G-league and some other program already out there trying to sign and pay basketball players out of high-school just not many choosing it.

Too much infrastructure and money needed for a minor league football league to work at this point.

I know a bunch of smart kids that would play ball every week for 5 years of year round, housing, meals, tuition, books, clothing and supplies. Plus an adoring public willing to throw NIL money at them. 

I'm not against players getting anything they deserve, but let's not act like playing major D1 Football and Basketball isn't a pretty sweet deal compared to the other 99% of students. 

At some point they will start getting paid as employees and then we will see a real mess...

The NFL and NBA are private entities. They don’t have to give anybody the choice of whether they want to be in their league or not. Each are well within their rights to establish whatever rules they want on who they let participate. 

They are also monopolies, as soon as some real competition comes along that will all change.
