[UPDATED April 3rd: Michael Sowers clarifies, says he has not withdrawn from Princeton.]
Princeton’s Michael Sowers has withdrawn from his spring semester at Princeton in order to return to the university and play next season, according to a report from The Athletic’s Dana O’Neil.
The NCAA granted a blanket waiver to spring student-athletes last night, but the Ivy League does not allow graduate students to compete in athletics. The Ivy League issued a statement to O’Neil: “The Ivy League supported the NCAA proposal to provide relief for all student-athletes whose spring seasons were canceled due to COVID-19. The League is considering the implications of this decision in order to appropriately counsel student-athletes currently evaluating their options.”
