If the high school player decides not to sign, he's then committed to the college for 3 years (this would have to be an NBA rule).

It'd lead to more stars being in college multiple years, there would be less stockpiling of players at the top because if Kentucky had 4 of the top 10 kids and then they all go pro, they'd have nothing in the new class, the NBA would have more polished players from college, the few who are ready to go pro right out of high school wouldn't be held back, and the delusional who think they are ready and don't get drafted or get drafted late could still go to school.
Nobody is offering a freshman who has a breakout year $100K to return to Cal State. At least I don't think so. But a freshman who is considering transferring to Louisville?

I don't think the exact system works. I say let them leave any time they want to enter the minor leagues. Baseball rarely develops someone from nobody to star in a year. It's a slog. Happens all the time in basketball.
