Georgia State quarterback Mikele Colasurdo announced he will not play in the 2020 college football season after being diagnosed with a heart condition related to COVID-19.
Colasurdo is an incoming freshman at Georgia State. He was ranked as a 3-star recruit coming out of high school and the 61st-ranked pro-style quarterback by 247Sports.
The Sun Belt Conference is one of the smallest conferences to move forward despite the COVID-19 pandemic, with Power Five conferences The Big Ten and Pac-12 already canceling their seasons.
Appalachian State, a member of the Sun Belt, postponed football activities this week after 11 people associated with the program tested positive for COVID-19.
Myocarditis has been found in several athletes who were previously diagnosed with the novel coronavirus. Colasurdo did not specify his specific heart condition.
