Every prospective student-athlete who would like to attend the invitation-only academy MUST be registered with the NCAA Eligibility Center and MUST nominate himself for consideration, so please remind your prospective student-athletes to register AND nominate themselves. Division I men’s college basketball coaches who are members of the National Association of Basketball Coaches will receive an email to send prospective student-athletes with instructions on how to nominate themselves for academy consideration.

Division I men’s basketball head coaches and select scouting agencies will vote for NCAA College Basketball Academy players beginning Monday, May 11. Voting will conclude at 5:00 p.m. Eastern time Friday, May 15.  Coaches will only be able to vote for players in the class of 2021, 2022 and 2023 who are registered with the NCAA Eligibility Center and who have already nominated themselves for consideration to attend the NCAA College Basketball Academy.

Division I men’s basketball head coaches will designate automatic qualifiers and at-large players. Automatic qualifiers will receive an invitation to the academy while at-large players will receive consideration, but are not guaranteed an invitation to participate.

After the voting window has concluded, selected players will be notified no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern time Friday, May 22. All votes are confidential and will not be released to the public or prospective student-athletes.

Coaches working the academy may be:

  • Division II and Division III men’s college basketball coaches.
