College sports took a step in the right direction of returning Wednesday as the NCAA Division I Council voted to approve voluntary athletic activities in football, men’s and women’s basketball beginning June 1. The story was first reported by Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports. The decision ends a suspension on all athletic activities through May 31.

The report outlines that a return to workouts for those sports must still be made in conjunction with state government, local government, conference and university officials.

The council is expected to address other sports soon.
