SEC suspends on- and off-campus recruiting in wake of Coronavirus

The SEC has cancelled their men’s basketball tournament and now put the league’s football coaches on ice as well.

Talking to the press in Nashville, commissioner Greg Sankey confirmed that in tandem with the conference’s decision to postpone all sporting events through March 30 due to the Coronavirus pandemic, recruiting on and off-campus will be stopped through the same date.

This notably affects a large number of recruits visiting various universities over the coming weeks and likely limits spring football practices as well. The spring evaluation period is also coming up and it appears coaches won’t be going around the country making visits until the all clear is given for that either.

Already we’ve seen other schools such as Notre Dame and USC pause spring football practice while Michigan canceled their spring game. The Wolverines and rival Ohio State also announced they wouldn’t be recruiting on- or off-campus so it appears like it’s just a matter of time before the entire recruiting calendar hits pause or is torn up altogether.
