Alabama Crimson Tide postpones spring practice
Alabama was scheduled to begin its spring practice on Friday. That will no longer be the case as the university announced Friday that it has elected to postpone its spring camp due to concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.
At 2:05 CT on Friday, the university released a statement reading: "Alabama has suspended spring football practice until further notice, including all football media-related activities. We will provide updates when more information is available."
Later Friday the SEC announced that all organized team activities, including competitions, team and individual practices, meetings and other organized gatherings, will be suspended through Apr. 15. The Crimson Tide was slated to hold all but two of its 15 spring practices during that span. Thursday Alabama rescheduled its pro day from March 24 to April 9. Due to the SEC's latest restrictions, the event will need to be pushed back even further. As of Friday, Alabama's annual A-Day game is still scheduled for April 18.
Friday, the NCAA instituted a dead period for in-person recruiting through at least April 15.
