Agent representation for student athletes during the draft process
- College basketball players may be represented by an agent at the conclusion of a basketball season provided they request an evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee and are scheduled for an evaluation.
All agreements between agents and college student-athletes must be:
- A written contract between student-athlete over 18 or minor’s guardian(s) and a certified agent
- Disclosed to the institution
- Terminated before the student returns to college (agreement provided to NC State must include Exhibit C from the NBPA)
- College student-athletes are not required to compensate an NCAA-certified agent for his or her services.
To work with a college athlete, agents must be certified by the NCAA (NBPA-certified agents are considered NCAA-certified in 2019).
Family members of the college athlete or those who act solely on behalf of a professional sports team are not required to be certified.
Agents can pay for expenses
Expenses After Agreement
- Men’s Basketball college student-athletes (and their families) can have meals, transportation and lodging paid for by an agent if those expenses are associated with meetings with the agent or a pro team.
- The student cannot miss class.
