NCAA granting extra year of eligibility due to sports’ suspensions


Senior NCAA athletes who have had their spring sports such as baseball, softball, track and others will have that year of eligibility restored, according to multiple reports.

The NCAA hasn’t answered the question about scholarship limitations as many sports have already signed 2021 classes and scholarships have been formally offered.

It is likely the NCAA will have to expand the number of scholarships, at least on a temporary basis, depending on the number of seniors wishing to stay on scholarship balanced with the number of freshmen entering.

There has been no word on how winter athletes’ eligibility will be handled, but the guess is there will be no changes there as the regular seasons had come to an end in basketball.
