NCAA Academy Opens Registration
The new NCAA recruiting calendar will return in the summer of 2020 and with it two scholastic recruiting weekends in late June, a four-day non-scholastic period in early July for grassroots events, and then the return of the NCAA College Basketball Academy.
The Academy debuted to mixed reviews in 2019, in large part because the nomination and selection process was not transparent.
In order to be considered for the 2020 Academy, a prospective student-athlete must be registered with the NCAA Eligibility Center and nominate himself for consideration.
The NCAA describes their College Basketball Academy as "a new developmental boys basketball academy for prospective student-athletes in the classes of 2021, 2022 and 2023. The Academy was created in response to recommendations from the Commission on College Basketball that was chaired by former Secretary of State, Dr. Condoleezza Rice. With input from the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), the academy is designed to give prospective student-athletes a sample of the college basketball experience."
The two sessions of the 2020 NCAA College Basketball Academy will take place July 20-23 (Monday-Thursday) and July 23-26 (Thursday-Sunday) at four regional sites.
University of Utah (Salt Lake City, Utah, WEST).
University of Winthrop (Rock Hill, South Carolina, SOUTH).
Wichita State University (Wichita, Kansas, MIDWEST).
University of Connecticut (Storrs, Connecticut, EAST).
