Hammock announces suspension of recruiting visits

NIU Football coach Thomas Hammock used Twitter to make an announcement suspending recruiting visits until further notice, coming on the heels of an announcement from the university that spring break would be extended and courses would be modified.

"In an effort to minimize exposure and to maintain the health of our players, our families, & our recruits along with their families - we are suspending all unofficial and official football recruiting visits to campus until further notice."

NIU put out a press release announcing several measures, with more to come from NIU. NIU added in a statement for staff and students:

"It’s critical that everyone regularly checks their NIU email. More specific information will be sent in the coming days and weeks that will require all to pay close attention and respond. Please take this simple step to support our community."
