INDIANAPOLIS - Keith Brumbaugh shook his head and sighed at the thought of spending five years playing basketball in college.
 

"Five years of school?" the blue chip recruit from Deland, Fla., said Friday at the Nike All-America Camp. "Five years is a long, long time to be in school."

But Brumbaugh, who is deciding between Florida and Florida State after flirting with the idea of jumping straight to the NBA, is not the kind of player coaches target with their proposal to add a fifth year of eligibility.

The National Association of Basketball Coaches unanimously recommended a sweeping new recruiting model Wednesday, one which includes allowing players to be eligible for five years.

NCAA president Myles Brand supports the proposal, saying the extra year of eligibility will help place a greater emphasis on education and improve lagging graduation rates. Brand said most students take 4.8 years to graduate and that athletes should be expected to do the same.

Actually a good idea dreamt up by the coaches! Good job! How many students finish a degree in 4 years, anyway?
