Larry Teis’s vote against satellite camps confuses many

There is no question that Texas is one of the biggest football states in the country as they produce more college football players than just about any other state every year. This is probably one reason why everyone seemed to be confused at Texas State athletic director Larry Teis’s decision to vote against satellite camps.

It is difficult enough for teams in the Sun Belt to recruit against Power Five conferences, so the satellite camps would be a huge help for them to go out and pull players from other states.

However, a few other coaches seem to back his decision to vote against the camps.

I am in favor of banning the camps. It’s totally out of control, just ruining the entire summer for prospects and for coaches,” Louisiana-Lafayette head coach Mark Hudspeth said. “Plus that keeps more in state players here. We’ve got a lot of talent in this state and we want those guys coming to our camp this summer.”

Many former Texas State Bobcats, including former linebacker Mike Orakpo, took to Twitter to disagree with Larry Teis.

Also keeps schools like TXST from hosting camps in Houston/DFW which more than half of the team is usually from https://t.co/hdQHh8EGn5

Withers spoke rather bluntly about satellite camp ban: "It was a snap decision. It's a really bad decision." #TXST

Withers: "This was nothing to do with us…this was the SEC and the Big 10 and I knew who would win that one."

It certainly doesn’t seem like the rest of the Sun Belt has a very good relationship with Teis at this point. Maybe he should start communicating into the future.
