A USC athlete tells me it’s like a “Ghost Town” right now about the athletic facilities.
“We can’t even use the weight room and most of the stuff is closed,” the athlete said. “I know some of the baseball players wanted to some stuff and they couldn’t do it. It’s frustrating.”
- The NCAA has declared a recruiting dead period in all sports until April 15 in response to the Coronavirus.
- The NCAA is allowing eligibility relief in the following spring sports: Beach volleyball (women), golf (men, women), baseball, lacrosse (m,w), rowing (w), softball, tennis (m,w), outdoor track (m,w), men’s volleyball and water polo (women).
- That means the athletes will get an extra year of eligibility. How this will affect the scholarship limits in each sport remains to be determined.
