The ongoing controversy of satellite camps flexes its muscle Friday.
Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh will be in Alabama’s and Auburn’s backyard in Prattville. In the past, the SEC has prohibited its coaches from taking part in such camps, but that won’t continue in the future.
The SEC will send a proposal to the NCAA in an effort to ban the ‘recruiting camps’, but if that doesn’t work, the conference’s coaches will hit the road next summer and do the exact same thing.
Harbaugh and Michigan picked up its first commitment from its first satellite camp Thursday in Indiana. The Wolverines also secured a commitment from Prattville running back Kingston Davis in early April.
A growing number of coaches from the Big Ten, Big 12 and Pac-12 are taking part in satellite camps around the country.
Meanwhile, Michigan’s ‘Summer Swarm’ camp tour will hit nine camps in nine days, via SportingNews.com.
The following are the SEC states Harbaugh will tour:
- Friday: Prattville Elite Football Camp (Prattville, Ala.)
- Saturday: USF One Day Camp (Tampa, Fla.)
- Monday: Aldine “Elite” College Football Camp (Houston)
- Tuesday: Dallas Showtyme Elite Football Camp (Grand Prairie, Texas)
