Huskers Cancel Junior Day Recruiting Event Over Coronavirus Concerns

March 11, 2020

Nebraska has canceled the Junior Day event planned for March 14 due to growing concerns over the Coronavirus. Hail Varsity confirmed the news with multiple recruits expected to attend the event. The news was first confirmed by 247Sports.

The Huskers were hoping to put on a big event Saturday. Several prospects with scholarship offers were expected to attend. That includes Iowa inside linebacker Seth Malcom, Wisconsin offensive lineman Marcus Mbow and Kansas City wide receiver Jaylin Noel. Husker 2021 commits Teddy Prochazka, Henry Lutovsky and Randolph Kpai were all expected as well to help peer recruit. 

Other schools in the Big Ten Conference have also made the move to suspend recruiting activities until a later time. Michigan announced early on Wednesday that it would not host recruits or have coaches on the road until Apr. 21. Ohio State announced the same and that they would be canceling its spring game. 

It is unknown now when Nebraska will resume recruiting activities. The fate of the Red-White Spring Game is still be monitored at this time with the situation being fluid.
