College basketball underclassmen will have more flexibility to test their NBA draft status without jeopardizing their eligibility under rule changes approved Wednesday at the NCAA annual convention.

Players will be allowed to enter the draft multiple times and participate in the combine and one NBA team tryout per year. They also will be allowed up to 10 days to withdraw from the draft after the combine.

The rule changes, which take effect immediately, were designed to help players make better decisions on their future and keep those who find out they’re not ready for the NBA on track for graduation.

I can’t believe the time has come for me to say this but I would like to announce that I will be declaring for the 2018 NBA Draft. First off I want to thank Jesus for putting me here and allowing me to show my gifts that he has given me. I want to thank my family and everyone who has been in my corner since day one, the support has meant a lot to me. I also want to thank those who doubted me and continue to doubt me, it only pushes me to get better every single day. I learned a lot this year on and off of the court and I’m thankful for the opportunity. Thank you Duke!!! 🔵⚪#JREAM

Michigan State forward Miles Bridges is entering the NBA draft and has hired an agent, he announced on Twitter on Wednesday morning.

In his announcement, Bridges thanked Spartans coach Tom Izzo and others for “giving a skinny kid from Flint a chance to play at such a legendary program.”

He confirmed a widely expected decision to enter the draft and that he’s signing with agent Rich Paul from Klutch Sports. ESPN draft analyst Jonathan Givony projects Bridges as the No. 11 prospect in his latest NBA draft rankings.

He averaged 17.1 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.1 assists as a sophomore this season, becoming the 11th consensus All-American at Michigan State during Izzo’s tenure.
