3x UPDATED: BREAKING: 21 Clemson football players reportedly have coronavirus

3rd UPDATE: 9:40 p.m. EDT: CNN has a list that as of this afternoon included 13 total schools where student-athletes are dealing with coronavirus.


2nd UPDATE: 9:36 p.m. EDT: Multiple athletes at the University of Mississippi remain in quarantine.


UPDATE: 9:28 p.m. EDT: Keep your updates coming! I’ve added Texas Tech, SMU, Kansas State, Michigan State, and Arkansas State to the list. These schools report that more than just football players have either symptoms of coronavirus or have been diagnosed with it.


ORIGINAL POST: ESPN reported on Friday evening that 21 Clemson University football players have come down with coronavirus.

Work your way down the story and you find this:

While the state of South Carolina reported its highest number of total positive tests and highest percentage of positive tests to date on Friday, the rate of positive tests at Clemson in the past week is nearly double the national average.

I’m trying to keep track of all reported coronavirus outbreaks during this period in which college football players were allowed to return to campus for voluntary workouts.

My (incomplete?) list now includes Houston, Central Florida, Texas, and the University of Texas-San Antonio.

Have I missed any? If so, please post a link in the reply box.
