The Big 12 has announced a phased return for student-athletes.

Football student-athletes can access campus athletic facilities and support personnel for voluntary conditioning and training exercises beginning June 15.

Volleyball, soccer and cross country student-athletes can return July 1.

All other Big 12 student-athletes can return to campus for various sport-related activities July 15.

The Big 12 says the phased approach is intended to "permit gradual adoption of best practices for mitigation of COVID-19 as well as ensuring a safe environment and appropriately prepared facilities."

Baylor University's Athletic Director Mack Rhoades said in a statement that the move was encouraging.
