The NFLPA will now allow certified agents to have contact with college players even if they are not three years out of high school, multiple media outlets reported Tuesday. Previously, a rule had been in place where that was not allowed.

According to The Associated Press, the so-called "junior rule" was passed in 2007.

NFLPA spokesman Carl Francis told the AP that player representatives from all 32 teams voted to repeal the rule. Francis also stated that “recruiters” and “runners” who work for agents will not be allowed to communicate with players still in college, and that only the certified agents would be able to do so.
