Clemson football, basketball players will return to campus on June 8

According to a release from Clemson: football and basketball athletes will return to campus for voluntary activities starting June 8. This decision comes six days after the NCAA Division I Council voted to allow voluntary on-campus activities — beginning June 1 — for football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball.

Clemson president Jim Clements also came out last week and said that the university is on pace for the fall semester — students moving into residence halls and in-person classes.

As the release notes, Clemson is looking to build a layer of protection with a de facto 14-day quarantine. Athletes will undergo a period of social distancing for seven days prior to arriving on campus. After that, athletes will then do the same in the Clemson “area.”

This seems like a tough procedure to enforce and follow; however, once those athletes complete the two-week period sans symptoms, they become eligible to start pre-participation physicals with the university’s sports medicine program.
