The NCAA famously banned satellite camps earlier this month, but that could soon be changing. Per a tweet from Rusty Mansell of 247 Sports, the NCAA could wind up revising its ruling if not reversing it outright.
Hearing from multiple sources that looks like Satellite Camps will be reversed. Believe a final answer could be by Friday..

This comes on the heels of news that both the Pac-12 and Sun Belt voted against the camps in spite of its member schools being in support of them, so the NCAA appears to be taking a second look at the issue. The Big Ten was the only conference that voted in favor of satellite camps, as Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh used them as a recruiting tactic last summer with great success, but drew the ire of the SEC for basically infringing on its territory.
But the fact of the matter is that satellite camps are a good thing, as they give recruits the opportunity to learn more about a certain program and draw said program’s attention when they may not be able to take an official visit to the campus. Just what will happen this week remains to be seen, but stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates!
