Move will sideline nation's top recruit in Gonzaga quarterback Caleb Williams this fall.
The Washington Catholic Athletic Conference is the latest to join the growing chorus of states pushing high school football to 2021. Comprised of parochial schools in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., three WCAC teams ranked in our preseason Top 25
won't be playing in 2020 along with Caleb Williams
, the country's No. 1 rated quarterback.
"The safety of our student athletes will always be the first priority in any future decisions concerning rescheduling of fall sports," WCAC commissioner Steve Colantuoni said in a statement.
Gonzaga's 5-star quarterback, an Oklahoma commit, isn't the only notable recruit facing the decision to play this spring or forgo his senior season.
Nine teams ranked in our initial Top 25 are from states announcing plans to bump football back to 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
