NCAA: All spring sports athletes receive additional eligibility

It’s official. The NCAA granted a waiver to allow additional eligibility for spring sports athletes whose seasons were cut short from the coronavirus.

Nicole Auerbach of The Athletic first reported the news.

The spring sports season was canceled just as it was starting and while it’s great for seniors looking to play one final year, this isn’t great for athletes who expected additional playing time next season. All in all, this was the correct decision, although I would imagine this makes for some awkward conversations deciding on scholarships.

No reports came out yet regarding winter athletes, so we shall see what this means for college basketball players.

Check out when the official reports come out, which should be any minute now.
