Default Can Someone Explain to me the Enes Kanter Situation?

I know he's going to be allowed to play. I'm sorry if I've missed a thread on here earlier that explains why, but I was gone all summer long, and saw tonight on ESPN a little highlight of him entering Kentucky's MM Undertaker style.

I just don't understand how a player that was paid to pay professionally (anywhere) can be eligible to play college basketball in the states. How is that any different than a top American high schooler going overseas (ala Brandon Jennings) after their senior year of high school, playing a year or two over there while getting paid, and then deciding to come play college basketball for another year or two before going to the NBA? I know that is an extreme example and likely won't ever happen, but still.
