Report: SEC to vote on potential campus return date for student-athletes
The SEC will reportedly meet next week to discuss a potential return date for student-athletes for the fall. The report comes from 247Sports.
LSU executive deputy athletic director Verge Ausberry said during a presentation on Thursday at the Louisiana Economic Recovery Task Force that chancellors and presidents will meet on May 22 to vote on whether or not players can return to campus in June. The SEC did not respond to an inquiry for more information.
A specific date in June was not mentioned in the report. Currently, the SEC has implemented a suspension on all team activities through May 31. That could leave the door open for a potential June 1 return date for student-athletes, if approved.
On Thursday, Rivals.com reported that members of Texas’s football staff will be returning to campus beginning next week. They will be in offices on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and will emphasize mask wearing and social distancing.
Currently, the B1G has implemented a suspension on all team activities until June 1.
