The NCAA Division I Council approved voluntary activities for football and basketball beginning June 1st.
Pete Thamel of Yahoo! Sports was the first to report the NCAA’s decision in a story posted Wednesday afternoon.
The NCAA voted for student-athletes to be cleared for a return to campus from June 1 through June 30. However, this doesn’t mean every university will decide to do it.
The final decision will be made by the state government, local government, conferences, and individual universities.
The NCAA Division I Council’s vote is a positive sign towards the 2020 college football season being played. Now, we will wait and see what the SEC decides to do.
Sources: The NCAA Division I Council voted to approve voluntary athletic activities in football, MBB and WBB to start June 1st and go through June 30th. There had been a moratorium on that through May 31st. Other sports will be acted on on a later date.
