Rich Paul’s Powerful Piece Over NCAA’s New Agent Restrictions

 

The NCAA issued a memo to agents outlining new certification requirements in order to represent players looking to enter the NBA Draft. The first qualification is that the agent has to have a bachelor’s degree at minimum. They also need to be certified with the NBPA for a minimum of three years and take an in-person exam at the NCAA Office.

This caused some backlash due to the sports’ biggest agent, Rich Paul, founder of Klutch Sports Group, not having a bachelor’s degree. LeBron James and other NBA stars came in to defend the agent and blasted the NCAA, dubbing the new criteria, the ‘Rich Paul Rule’.

Now, Rich Paul himself wrote a piece for The Athletic and presented his thoughts on the controversial topic.

 

“Requiring a four-year degree accomplishes only one thing – systematically excluding those who come from a world where college is unrealistic.”
