This blokes blog states that he had a 5 year 800K deal on the table!? Breakers really must be over the cap!

When's the last time Nebraska even got close to a top-50 recruit, let alone one that had interest from Pittsburgh, NC State, Wake Forest, LSU, Vanderbilt and Saint Mary's and had a five-year, $800,000 New Zealand league contract on the table? When's the last time Nebraska basketball was attractive enough that a player like Webster would choose it over a plethora of other good options?

Why is it we are told that playing SEABL can risk US College eligibility?? This case would be far above that level. I know players that are told not to wear a warmup top with a sponsors name on it because it may be deemed that the team has profited from you playing therefore becoming semi professional.

I think the rules are now if you receive money for playing basketball, rather than what level you play

Yes, they have softened the rules a little.

So much so, that you can receive living costs from your team and still be eligible (cue Enes Kanter). Still risky business though.

So no playing SEABL/NZNBL or a dev NBL player won't ruin your chances.

It's the RISK. The actual risk that you might be ineligible will deter college teams.

It's alright if your a top recruit like Tai Webster. But if your not so skilled, the colleges will be put off by your potential ineligiblity.
