Nebraska announces plan for student-athletes to return June 1
Nebraska has announced its plans to allow student-athletes back on campus beginning June 1. The university issued its plan on Friday, just a few days after the NCAA announced it would end its moratorium on organized team activities that same day.
According to the Lincoln Journal Star, Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos has given the ‘OK’ for student-athletes to return to campus for voluntary athletic activities beginning on June 1. The plan is for football players, men’s and women’s basketball players, volleyball players and soccer players to return to campus on that date.
The arrivals of the student-athletes will be staggered and in small groups.
“We’ve made considerable movement here,” Moos said. “Hopefully, we can get some of these other sports in here soon, too. But I think it’s important we start with limited numbers and show our signs of success, and then advance hopefully from there.”
Nebraska is one of four B1G schools who had made the decision to allow voluntary workouts. Others include Illinois (June 3), Ohio State (June 8) and Iowa (June 8).
