Following in line with cancellations and postponements across the sports world due to coronavirus, Florida State football will be canceling its on-campus workout for athletes angling for a spot in the NFL.
From the school:
In accordance with recent Florida State University and ACC guidance regarding athletically-related activities and visitors to campus, Florida State football’s Pro Day, originally scheduled for March 23, has been canceled.
The sports world has been rocked since the spread of the COVID-19 virus, with events from spring practice to March Madness being shut down in an effort to prevent further contamination.
Seminole running back Cam Akers, who was named to the All-Combine team after an impressive NFL Combine performance, was one of several players expected to participate in the workout, along with linebacker Dontavious Jackson and defensive back Stanford Samuels III. While those players have film and a nationally-recognized school behind them to get a little bit of clout, perhaps some of the players most affected by the cancellation will be those from area schools who could have potentially been invited to participate.
