On Monday the NCAA Division I  Council voted to grant spring sport athletes an extra year of eligibility. And according to the NCAA’s ruling, the NCAA Division I Council has adjusted financial aid rules to allow teams to have more players on scholarship to account for incoming recruits.

Also, schools will be able to offer the same, less, or more aid to a player than they did this season. They also have the option to offer no aid. 

In wake of the NCAA’s ruling, seniors have decisions to make on whether they will comeback for a for an extra year or go pursue their post-collegiate plans. 

Here is team-by-team list of which seniors have made their decisions to return:
