Man Up is a former basketball student-athlete at Ocean State University (OSU). Man exhausted his eligibility five years ago and has been playing in the NBA. Man is in town visiting with the coaches this week and would like to participate in a few practices with the team. Is it permissible for Man to practice?
Yes with conditions. NCAA Bylaw 126.96.36.199 states that a former student at the certifying institution (e.g., former student-athlete) may participate in an organized practice session on an occasional basis, provided the institution does not publicize the participation of the former student at any time before the practice session.
