This won't come as a surprise but

a basketball recruit told me college coaches are telling him they don’t expect any official or unofficial visits to happen until a vaccine is available.

Correct RD, no surprise there.

And, if a vaccine isn’t available for 3 years?? What if they produce a medication that kills covid 19 within 3 days? Way too many ifs for coaches to be telling recruits this.

Good point, Harley. An effective treatment medicine would put the world back into relative normalcy in a pretty short time. Which will come first…a vaccine or an effective treatment? Hopefully, both and soon.

I think the coaches are thinking out loud here. Probably heard this from some in their administrations.

It makes sense to think this way because there seems to be a pretty high confidence level about a vaccine at the end of the year or the first of next.

You have to think about Richard’s post in the context of the time in which it was said…and also, who said it, and to whom. In other words, TODAY, most people seem to think (whether or not there’s any REAL reason to) that we’ll have a vaccine either later this year or in the spring. So, that’s the time-frame they are inferring

It’s also important to realize that this is a second-hand version of what someone (who does not directly have anything to do with the actual policies) “thinks”. It’s not as if this is something carved in stone.

Just the latest “this is what we’re hearing” info coaches are passing along to players…“inside info”, as it were…nothing more, and subject to change at any time.
