The NCAA has approved new rules on basketball recruiting intended to restrict money being funneled to third parties.
The governing body wants to limit access by coaches from outside the NCAA who run camps and try to enlist players.
The NCAA on Thursday also put in place a six-member committee to select a successor to the late Myles Brand as NCAA president. The group will be led by Oregon State president Ed Ray and is to meet Thursday night.
Ray replaces Georgia president Michael Adams, who is leaving immediately as the board’s executive committee chairman. Adams is believed to be a top candidate for the NCAA president’s job.
The NCAA also approved to a $35 million addition to its headquarters in Indianapolis.
