If you remember the Rice Commission, the commission the NCAA set up to look at reforms after the Adidas scandal broke, one of the recommendations was to bring in people from outside the normal channels to add some perpsective.

Well one of those people is going to be Grant Hill. The former Duke and NBA star was named to the NCAA Board of Governors on Tuesday.

Universally respected, Hill is highly intelligent and has a lifetime of experience in the game. He’s also fairly humble and we’re guessing he’s willing to learn. He should be a great addition.
