Since the XFL announced the Summer Showcase last week there have been a lot of questions from fans and players that are looking to get a try out. Today the XFL has posted a video giving a bit more information on the process.
It seems that the Summer Showcase will not be an open tryout, you will need to be invited to join the event. We also learned in today’s press conference announcing June Jones as Head Coach/GM of XFL Houston that college players will be able to enroll in the Showcase without losing college eligibility.
“These will be combines with innovative drills, where players with professional experience can get an opportunity show their wares in front of all of our coaches”, said Luck. “In addition to that we have an open application for college players.”
You can go to XFL.com for more information on how to register for the Summer Showcase.
We have also confirmed, directly with Oliver Luck, that the Summer Showcase will be open to the public, meaning fans will be able to watch the XFL’s twist on the combine live and in person.
