Eastern Michigan hasn’t come out and said how the results of its COVID-19 tests have gone since players were able to return for voluntary workouts on Thursday, June 18, but we do know one player that at least had a positive case. Senior cornerback Freddie McGee III tweeted that he no longer has the virus in him.
It’s great that McGee (and others) were able to catch and have it treated early enough before it spread to too many others during football (and during non-football activity). It’d be even better if other schools would’ve tested everybody upon their arrivals too. Looking at you, Toledo, Ball State, and Kent State. (Akron’s not back yet, but the Zips are on watch).
