The report comes on the heels of the NCAA Division I Council’s decision that voluntary activities including football, basketball could start June 1.

There's currently a moratorium on all in person activities through May 31 as the NCAA took actions to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Earlier this week LSU head coach Ed Orgeron told WWL Radio’s Kristian Garic and Bobby Hebert that the school’s athletic department was preparing for players to return to campus safely.
