In this video, we'll be talking about why athletes leave college early.
I'm going to give you a football and basketball terms.
You guys know those exports I cover the most Before I get this video started.
Don't forget to follow me at simply me.
Underscore a V on Twitter.
I'm a part of the Unwrap Sports Network.
Let's just dive into it.
Um, I'm gonna give you some NBA draft rules.
Some NFL draft rules.
Excuse me, N B A draft rules.
NFL draft rules.
Um, of course, any NBA referees come with international rules as well.
And then I'm going to give you my reasons why, in my opinion, why athletes leave early.
So when I give you those rules for each sport, I'll give you my reasons.
They're all kind of run into each other and kind of make sense as I go.
So let's talk about the NBA draft real quick.
The NBA draft eligibility rules for prospect of players have changed several times during the history of the league.
No player may signed the NBA until they're 19 are older players who have signed at least one year who have played Excuse me one year of college basketball are eligible for the NBA draft That's been called the one and done rule.
It's a lot of one and done, um, in the call one and done players.
Let's talk about some early history.
In the earliest days of the N B A three players entered the NBA draft without having played in college, although one of them did not enter the league until he was 39 years old.
However, the league eventually establish the rule that at player could not make himself available for the draft until two years after his high school graduation.
So at first it was a two year rule.
Then it went okay, you don't have to goto.
I'm in college at all.
And then they changed the one and done.
I'm gonna tell you guys something to go read.
I'm not going to read the whole article.
Haywood versus the NBA A Cup King 310 thank you for joining a broadcast.
I appreciate it.
Haywood versus the MBA.
This is a about Spencer Haywood.
You guys should go read up on that.
Now I'm going to get into this is automatic eligibility.
Players whose 19th birthday falls during or before the calendar year of the draft, or at least when you removed from the graduation of their high school class and who do not meet the criteria for international players are automatically eligible if they meet any of the following criteria.
They have completed four years of their college eligibility.
This is automatic eligibility, guys, if they graduated from high school in the U.
But they're not enroll in a college or, you know U S a U S.
College or university.
Four years have passed and start high school class graduated.
They have signed a contract with a professional team outside the U.
Excuse me outside the MBA Excuse me anywhere in the world and have played under that contract.
They must also be released from their contract before they can leave college to go to the NBA.
That's when you're automatically eligible.
Those who have reached the minimum eligibility age of 19 a meet the criteria for international players are automatically eligible if they meet any of the following criteria.
They are at least 22 during the calendar year of the draft and they have signed a contract with the professional basketball team.
I sought the NBA within the United States and have played under the contract.
Now that is automatic eligibility.
So your seniors automatically eligible.
If you graduated hight school four years, they want to go play over.
You graduated high school for four years and you wait and say, OK, I want to know the NBA draft You're automatically eligible.
Doesn't necessary thing you're declaring for the draft.
So declaring is Ellen.
Excuse me? Early entry player.
Who? This is a lot guys.
Um well, that's a lot.
Okay, I have to read all this guy so it could make sense.
Players who are not automatically eligible but wished to be drafted must declare their eligibility.
No, let it at 60 days before the draft.
After this day, early entry players may attend MBA predraft camps, individual team workouts, a show off their skills and obtained feedback regarding their draft positions under the C.
You're not guys.
Melissa Collective bargaining, collective bargaining agreement and player may withdraw his name from consideration from the draft at any time before a final declaration date, which is 10 days before the draft.
However, the incidentally adopted a rule that took effect in August 2009.
It requires a player requires where institutions to withdraw.
No letter that may 8th to retain their college eligibility eligibility.
The first draft affected by this rule was the 2010 draft in 2011 and short in its time life for players to withdraw and retain eligibility.
So one day before the start of the spring signing period for men's college basketball, which occurs in April, it's a double like changes withdraw rule again in 2016 Effective with that year's draft, it's withdraw.
Deadline is now late May, specifically 10 days after the final day of the annual eh NBA draft combine.
I hope that makes sense.
Guys, a player who declares for the draft and stays and it loses his college eligibility.
And when he was drafted, he can sign with any agent following an evaluation from the NBA Undergraduate advisory committee, and if he ends up undrafted, he has the opportunity opportunity to return to his school for at least one year for release another year.
Excuse me on Lee.
After terminating all agreements with that agent.
So you have to fire your agent and terminate all agreements with that agent to come back to school.
Effective with the 2 2019 draft until 2018 college players lost their eligibility when they signed with their agents and stayed in the draft on Lee to be left undrafted before 2016 in the draft once without losing eligibility.
But Curry is a CW.
Rules now allow players to declare and withdraw from multiple drafts while obtaining retaining.
Excuse me college eligibility.
The CB allows the players we've dropped Wykes so you can withdraw from draft twice.
The second instance, you wanna put your name and address of freshman year, you withdraw you and put your name in a draft sop****re year. You withdraw.
You can't come back and play your junior year, but she cannot withdraw your junior year.
You have to stay in the draft if you decide to declare definition of an international of international players.
This is the definition of an international player.
The C B A defies international players for draft purposes, as those who meet all of the following criteria permanently reside outside of the U.
For at least three years before the draft while playing basketball outside the U.
Have never enrolled in a college in a U S.
College University did not complete high school in the U.
So those are declared international players.
Those who international players aren't has made has been quotations because a lot of guys leave graduation college.
I mean, graduate from high school.
Excuse me, go play overseas for a year, make money for their families and come back.
But I'll talk about that now.
Um, college basketball.
Okay, let's talk about this a little bit.
Alternates to college basketball.
I just found this.
Okay. Oklahoma City guard Terrence Ferguson.
T Ferg had originally committed so Alabama, then Arizona.
But he decided to play in Australia for their international team.
He has urged others to do the same, saying most one and done.
Players only spend a few months in college.
You have to do school work and all other stuff.
You go overseas.
You spend the same amount of time of months, but you're only focus on straight basketball.
I feel like more players should do it.
Another argument he made is that he gets paid for playing overseas.
While college players don't receive money, which is one of the biggest issues players have going to college, another obstinate that can be taken instead of playing players.
Sami and Wide 30 to thank you for doing the broadcast.
I appreciate it.
Thank you for doing the broadcast.
I appreciate it.
Another argument can be made is that he gets paid for playing overseas while college player.
Okay, I'll write that already.
Another alternate alternative, Excuse me that can be taken is instead of playing.
Players may take a year off to train recently drafted Portland guard Anthony Simmons.
You guys know him. I love Anthony Simmons.
Simon's excuse me Entering assignments, decides to skip out on college altogether and instead opted to spend a year at the AMG Academy.
Kenyon Martin Jr has declared from the drive from the I N G Academy.
He was supposed to play a vendor ville with Scottie Pippen during him, but he decided to go.
I am G Academy instead, and he has declared for the NBA draft.
Simon's explained his reasoning for skipping college by saying, I feel like in college you got three classes a day.
That's a big thing.
A lot of time as basically time I was able to spend in the gym getting better.
Um, so you have those alternate? Ah.
Then you have overseas.
So you heard from Terrence Ferguson, the Garfield Clumsy Thunder and Anfernee Simon's the guard from Portland Trailblazers.
So those are just alternate guys.
So that's the That's the MBA rules.
Let's go to the NFL draft rules.
Let's look those up real quick.
Look, this isn't not long the event we served.
Okay, let me go to their rules.
Okay, pick trays.
Compensated peak salaries for future scouting.
Combine pro day history.
I want the There's a supplemental draft.
I'm complete, but already put rules in the feel.
Let me talk this thing, guys, how to play, or I'm pretty sure they're rules.
That kind of the same stuff.
It'll have the international portion for their rules.
Um, I'm looking for player eligibility.
When can you declare for the NFL draft? Okay, I'm just gonna read this guy's a little bit about the NFL draft.
In order to be eligible for the NFL draft, a player must be at least three years removed from high school.
That means that cost football players eligible to enter the NFL draft after his junior season or, in some cases, his redshirt sop****re season.
Thank you for the 200 popcorn tickets. I appreciate it.
So, basically an NFL, you have to wait three years in the NBA.
You can go one and done.
Um, do you need to go to college to play in it and fail to be dressing NFL player? Most be three years out of high school? That means in a player let's have it have at least a high school diploma before in an NFL draft.
The NFL also once players who have a little maturity and experience under their belts and requires players who spend time playing college football.
Now, that's how that works for an NFL draft.
I wonder when you can pull your name.
I'm gonna look up this, uh, SB nation article that I'm to get back to you guys years out of high school.
Do you do? Okay.
Obviously, college football players have graduated for five years and drafted, okay, offer special waivers.
I don't see is not really telling me much about the NFL draft, which I don't understand.
Why, um, I'm gonna ask one more question, and I'm gonna get to my reasons why players declare.
When can you withdraw long ago in a field, Drag nothing.
Tell me when you can drop from the NFL draft, because this year, the NBA draft is on the 20 fifth.
I want to say and you have to withdraw by june 3rd, some 25th of junior after we drop by June 3rd.
Right? Um, it don't tell me, uh, when you can withdraw from the NFL draft, but in NFL, your state college, three years be removed from college for three years, an MBA college for one year, or play overseas for a year.
You guys know the rules.
Okay, here we go.
And don't give me much on the NFL, so I'm just gonna I just told you guys what I saw now they do have They can withdraw their names from the draft, of course.
Um, and things like that.
Same with the n b A.
They have the same type of rules.
It's just the link of college.
Time is longer and they don't have international rules and there's some other particular rules might be different, but they're not showing me anything on here Now.
The NFL draft is set to be virtual Roger Goodell announced that it's on the virtual from the 20 sired of April to do the 25th 6th start on Thursday and have Friday and Saturday.
Thursday's the 1st 2 rounds, and then you guys know Saturday is the last day.
Here's some things I just wrote down, and I'll explain those as I go on now.
This comic coincides with a V R.
Did yesterday this first reason why remembering it's your own decisions.
Now, When I talked about 10 things, I would tell a recruit, uh, number one thing I said, this decision is yours.
So those coincide, this is your decision.
This is your decision to make is one of the business biggest decisions you have to make.
A business decision is also ah, emotional decision is a financial decision.
This decision can come with a lot of pressure.
Johnny Socks Thank you for joining broadcast.
I appreciate it.
This decision could come with a lot of pressure.
I'm gonna talk about all these things that are all tie into one another because you're trying to figure out okay, I was not play good.
The show was first team all sec.
I was on a honorable mention for all American team.
I was this I was at, I lead my team in tackles.
I was there, so I was at, you know? Okay, I think I want to make this decision, but you have to wait out everything.
Um, a lot of guys don't know if they're gonna go to the draft before the season.
Some guys like Okay, this is my last year.
I'm going to the draft after this year.
Some guys like, Okay, if I could have a big year this year, I can shoot up draft board.
And I could go to the draft this year, but the decision is ultimately yours.
So that's the biggest thing I would tell somebody.
Honestly, that's the biggest reason that, um, I think they leave early is because their decision.
But I want you to remember also it's your decision, if that makes sense.
Number two is peer pressure.
You're gassed up on campus Your own campus.
I like, man, You're big man on campus.
You're walking with a cane to walk the class because you caught Maybe caught 23 touchdowns a week before and you leave the conference and receptions and your third in the conference and touchdown catches and you're feeling yourself.
You're walking around campus like, Yeah, I'm talking football turns guys.
Or if basketball you can't cook with 30 point games on the road.
Ah, your team is on like a five game winning streak.
You're on campus and you're filling itself.
People are asking for autographs and pictures that you want to get on my Snapchat.
Hey, can I pull? She shut you out and you shot me out on instagram for a tag.
You This is the world we live in these days, guys is it's all social media.
So the peer pressure of being the big man on campus is saying Okay, listen, it's the people that you're here.
Hey, man, I think you can go.
There's two rounds and enough if something to go 1st 2 rounds, man or listening.
If you're going basketball terms saying now, you could be a lottery pick that peer pressure is something else.
But you can also have to remember.
You have to go back to the first thing I said It is your decision, but peer pressure is something crazy.
I've seen it happen.
We're guys made the wrong decision from peer pressure.
I would get to that in a minute.
Number three Relevance.
How relevant are you? I'll give you an example.
Trey Young Trey Young came.
You, um I wasn't expecting much.
I was like, Okay, he's gonna be pretty good.
But he became the hot topic in college basketball.
It was Trey Young.
He was on SportsCenter top 10 almost every week with the past. With the shot.
We're doing something crazy.
He was so relevant.
Oh, my goodness.
Thank you for the 200 tickets of popcorn.
I appreciate it.
Trey Young was relevant.
Very, very relevant.
He was like, Okay, he was hot.
If you're hot, that's one of somebody says Okay, you need to go.
Because when you're hot, then next year you could break your leg.
You can tell your Achilles you could break your arm.
You can fracture your foot.
Something can happen to you. So when you're relevant.
That's why I say relevance when you're relevant.
You're on SportsCenter almost every week.
That is a good sign that Okay, I'm hot Now.
So I think that's why Trey Young left.
I think it was the right decision for him.
Honestly, I was I was kind of hesitant.
Of course I was like, Oh, no, I don't know. He's small.
When you can shoot, you can shoot.
Um, he gets his shot off.
So he knows how to create space.
To get a shot off his floater is really nice.
He can finish at the Ram.
He's a great passer.
He was hot. He was relevant.
Here we go. Number four.
I don't know how often this happens, but I put it in here anyway.
Coaching change when there's a change in regime, Um, sometimes you'll get a new athletic director and they clean.
Perhaps they'll just clean house. Okay.
I want to get rid of the football coach.
The basketball coaches, all of the coaches, they cleaned house, and then you get a new coach in, and you're like, Oh, boy, like I don't know.
Um my my soul just declare because this coach is bringing these players and and right now, you know, I think I could be a lottery pick working.
We got to go on Day one or Day two and NFL draft.
Let me. I don't know.
Like I like playing for the coach I had before.
I don't know how I'm gonna feel about this, Coach.
I don't know how often that happens, but I put it on here because I think it happens.
They just probably don't tell you like, hey, such and such a stickler for a minute in an MBA or NFL drive Because this coach left that coach left.
They're not gonna not gonna tell you that.
People aren't want to tell you that, but that that might be a reason why some people declare for the draft in a feller N b A.
Because of a coaching change.
I don't know how often that happens now.
Draft stock, this is It's tied in with relevance.
And it's also time and with peer pressure, your draft stop argument example I usually give you 00 you athletes examples because that's where it went Naval Gallimore.
I remember Joe Clack.
You watch any big toe football? If you watch Fox Sports, you know Joe clad is Joe Clark is a huge or you think you and I remember him saying that enabled Gallimore woulda left last year.
He would have been drafted, but this year he get him a first round grade so your draft stock can rise because he's a senior.
The shootings. The Journal. Last year he thought about leaving.
I don't think, he declared, though, but I know he thought about leaving and joke.
Let's say last year he would have been drafted, but this year he gives the first around.
He's gonna be a first late first round, early second round pick.
And then when I did when I be a top make Shays 4.
0, draft Mont Draft.
He was a second round pick for time.
He went 40th to the Jacksonville Jaguars, I believe.
Let me go Look at that guy's starting 3 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 He went 42 to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
A court according to time McShay on his mock draft. Four point no.
So he stayed another year.
Early second round, Great drive.
He's a defensive tackle for the University of Oklahoma, by the way, he's a senior, so that draft stock rose his senior year.
You got a new defense of coordinated Alex Branch at O U.
He was able to unleash him.
Kenneth's Murray is another guy I think can have.
Murray probably been 1/5 6th or seventh round pick last year.
Now can if Murray's a first round pick this year.
Joe Clack talked about him as well.
No difference of Coordinated came from Ohio State.
Took off the leash on that defense, Really.
And particularly, I think married that leash Africans murder and say, OK, go get the ball.
Cylon, Cylon. Just go get it.
And he really brought out the potential in Canada.
Mary, I wish you could have had.
I wish Marty could have had him his freshman year, but draft stop can change from year to year.
I'm just giving you two players examples.
I'll give you a basketball example, but hell buddy Hell thought about leaving.
He put his foot in the water and said, No, I want to come back.
They make that huge run and went to the Final Four, But he'll one national player of the year.
Like I said, you went to the Final Four and Bone Buddy was a first round draft pick.
He was a lot of repeat.
If I'm not mistaken, he was taken by the New Orleans Pelicans and he would got traded, um, for the mark that the market's closing in the markets.
Cousins deal and got traded.
And now he's in Sacramento and he just got paid and he wanted three point contest.
You need to know.
OK, where is my draft stock? You gotta know that.
I think it's really big and a little none.
Other reason why players make the decisions.
Family issues, money.
A lot of players in college football and basketball.
I really don't like to say it, but they come from families that don't have much.
They come from families that depend on them to provide once they make it.
But the eyes that make it are very slim.
You got five star recruits that have never touched the NFL field.
You've got players they weren't recruited at all, becoming number one draft picks.
Um, you got players that were recruited heavy but didn't get drafted and became MBA stars.
So it's just making decisions for your family is something that is a lot of pressure.
It's a lot of pressure on you as a young player, like Okay, like my mom, you know, she's having trouble paying rent.
Or she might be on food stamps like I want to get my family out of situation.
My mom needs this.
My my grandpa leases Mother Money's is my uncle.
The hell braves me.
That's a lot of pressure.
So family issues also could be peer peer pressure as well.
Your family like Look, you know, I'm saying like we can't do this.
Won't you just go ahead and enter the draft you like? I don't know where I'll be drafted.
Now you feel that pressure from your family because everybody's depend on you to make it.
Everybody's depending on you to make it your family, your friends everybody always use LeBron James's example.
He had a whole study behind him in Akron.
Depend on him to make it like he's gonna make it. He's our king.
He's he's everything to Akron, Ohio.
And when he made it, when he made it, he gave back.
He gave back in great ways.
He also gave back his off his friends, his same circle he had my school is the same guy I see around him now.
Rich Paul thereby know so much.
Paul is he's a super agent.
Are causing the super agent.
He was on the cover of S I I'm not mistaken.
Ah, Maverick Carter.
Maverick Carter is more behind the scenes and he kind of does this thing by the things.
He's the businessman If you watch, um, the barbershop show, what is it called the shop? If you watch the shop, you know whomever Carter's and then you got Randy.
Randy's the businessman that handles everything.
He's ruled behind the scenes.
Real Robles Hana sees you don't see Randy Much.
Um, I think Bryce is the head coach, his point guard that he played with at Mount Saint Mary's.
I think he's the head coach for some mouth, saying There's and there's one more guy than I miss another.
It was LeBron LeBron.
It might be another guy that I'm missing, those guys.
I know for sure he has the same circle around him he had when he was a middle school.
So now and they all make money.
He said, Okay, on the face.
I mean people around me that I can trust to operate this stain.
Who better than the people that I grew up with, understand what it means to come from from what it means to come from Akron and make money and be able to give back to our community.
He start the school that I promised school that was great for him.
He does a lot for this city of Akron, Um, even though they got mad at him for leaving Cleveland and going to go play for Miami.
But then he came back to Cleveland, gave you a championship for, gave Dan Gilbert, and then he went to L.
He did what he's supposed to want to L A.
But when he made it everybody, it seemed like when he made it, they all made it.
So that's a great story I like to use.
Um, his family made it.
He married his high school sweetheart.
You know, his kids will have his kids, his kids, kids and kids, kids, kids as generation of wealthy, setting up generational wealth.
I think brawny got a lifetime contract from Nike, like, four years ago.
So it's this kind of like when I make it, my whole family's gonna make it in the family that I'm bringing into the world is gonna make it and their families, they're gonna make it in there.
Sam is gonna make it.
So that's that's beautiful to see, but family plays a big part of it.
This is something people get a lot.
That advice, bad advice is next is next on my list.
Um, you can meet you guys. Watch.
I refer to the movie. He got game.
Remember when Jesus showed a work? Jesus, Jesus Shuttlesworth, which is Ray Allen and relies.
But he was Jesus Shuttlesworth.
He met his girlfriend, met a guy that was an agent, right? He met a guy that was an agent um, his girlfriend introduced him to the agent, so the agent was giving him advice on what to do and how to do it and how to move and things like that.
But then his dad gets out of prison.
His dad needs him to sign with a certain college because the warden is alumni of the college.
So he's getting advice from his dad that he does this, like because Dad killed his mom has no watch the movie.
He's getting advice from this agent and his girlfriend met, So he has two people in his ear.
Like you should do this now.
You should, you know, you should audition.
I'm going to sign here so I could get But his dad had alter your motive to get out of prison If he signed, the agent had also removed because he wanted him and signed with him and course, take a piece of the pot.
So bad advice can come from anybody.
Family frames, girlfriends, boyfriends that matter.
Ah, bad advice can come from anybody.
Coaches could give you bad advice.
Um, athletic directors, it could come from anybody.
You can get it from both sides of the spectrum.
and that's very difficult to deal with.
So bad advice is big.
The last thing I think, the reasons why Anthony Assignments and Chance Ferguson talked about this being taught of college.
You love the cause basketball atmosphere for buying atmosphere on Saturday.
Body plan a couple times a week.
You love that administrative fans.
Yeah, Yeah, but do you have to go to class on Monday? Wake up and go to class, then you have to go to study hall thing.
You have to type this pope and then you got a text When all you're thinking about is basketball or football like man, I need to get in a way room down in the night.
You're watching YouTube me? I've seen it.
I would learn a library.
You know, you and I would see an athlete in the library every now.
Then you'll see him in a library because they have their own study quarters.
You seem in a library, and he's watching YouTube videos on his phone and on his computer.
He's probably got one paragraph type thing.
He's got form five more pages to go, but he's watching YouTube videos on his phone.
A football highlights I sat there in Washington of wound.
I'm watching a whole life, Sue, and I'm trying to start my paper.
So you have so much on your mind outside off school.
You're not even thinking about school you're thinking about OK, what does my mom needs this week? Uh, how's my brother doing? How's my sister doing? Um, trying to hang out with my boys.
What is my girlfriend doing? All these things you're thinking about? You're not thinking about school, you like, man.
If I don't have to go in school than man, I could but workout in trains.
Been talking with my boys.
Spend time with my my girlfriend if you have.
If you have a child, spend time with my child and told my family you have all these things, other outside things you're thinking about besides school and school, it's just not important to you at all.
So being kind of college, I think, is one reason why athletes decide to jump ship if you like.
I spent one year in school and I just absolutely did not like it.
I barely passed.
I'm Burleigh eligible to play from semester to semester.
This is not working for me.
I'm not gonna be a lottery pick and a lot of times lottery picks in it.
And I'm talking NBA draft guys a lot of times, first round great pics and have failed a lot of first and second rounds to get tired of school.
Just think about it in the NFL.
To be eligible for NFL, you have to spend three years in school.
Mind you called Football is August through December than the postseason is in jail for that.
College basketball is November, December, January, February and March.
So college basketball runs in the two semesters, while college football just kind of does that one semester, because by the time second semester starts, they're now complain college football.
This all bass calls back ball you see on TV because the national championship is in the beginning of January for cultural ball.
So now you're thinking, Oh, I stay in school for three years and in the n F wants an NFL. You don't have a choice.
You have to stay in school for three years.
But then Ba, you're like, man, I could do it two semesters.
I'm gonna be a lottery pick and I'm done I'm gone.
I know why I said, I love Duke.
I love being a duke.
Um, ****stan of the year.
I would, but he had to go.
Everybody knew he had to go.
Hey, Austin could have been a one and done.
It's not very many people out there like that. They could be one and done.
But I think he's one of those few players generational players.
It could have been a one and done.
That is it for this video.
Thank you so much for joining us Broadcast.
I appreciate it being patient with me as I look up things on the Internet.
Now, later on tonight, I'm gonna do Should I play overseas? Least videos kind of go together? Um, the reasons why athletes declared.
And should I play overseas Now when I'm talking overseas, I'm talking about basketball guys.
I'm gonna talk men's and women's as well.
Should I play overseas? So should you go play overseas before you go to the NBA.
And then, of course, for women.
Should I go play overseas and make some money? Or should I go to school and then playing a W B angle Summer.
So I'm gonna talk about both of those things.
Both of those genders, men and women's of their different scenarios.
So I'll be back with that video.
Don't forget the follow me and simply me underscore gravy on Twitter.
I am a part of the Unwrap Splits network, and I'll see you guys later.
