    NCAA moves closer to allowing athletes to serve as Paid Sponsors.

    If adopted, the rules would allow athletes to make sponsorship and endorsement deals with all kinds of companies and third parties, from car dealerships to concert promoters to pizza shops, according to a person who has reviewed the recommendations. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because the details were still being discussed and debated.

    The NCAA would create a mechanism to evaluate potential deals for fair market value and spot possible corruption. An athlete could compromise their eligibility for failing to disclose details of a financial agreement or relationship, the person said.

    All it takes is the NBA getting the best kids to take $500k to skip college and the NCAA has a change of heart

    All NCAA member institutions better plan to triple their Athletics compliance departments.

    I'd imagine the NCAA will have a pretty loose leash on this as every PR battle over player compensation is pretty much a net loss for them as this point. They will likely just ensure that NCAA Images (logos, school jerseys etc.) aren't being used in the endorsements.
