Oklahoma Sooners: NCAA extends eligibility for 2020 spring sports athletes

The NCAA Division I Council has voted to allow an extra year of eligibility for college athletes participating in spring sports. This extension applies to all student-athlete classes, not just seniors, who were participating in their respective sports this spring before their seasons were cut short by the nationwide coronavirus threat.

This means that OU athletes like softball players Giselle “G” Juarez, Shannon Saile and Nicole Mendes, baseball players Brandon Zaragoza and Jason Ruffcorn and golf seniors Quade Cummins and Garrett Reband will have the opportunity to extend their careers and return for the 2021 season.
