SEC to Allow Satellite Camps if NCAA Does Not Ban Them

DESTIN, Fla. (AP) – The Southeastern Conference will either change the rules regarding recruiting camps or join in the chase.
SEC athletic directors voted Wednesday to drop the league’s restriction that prohibits coaches from attending satellite camps beginning in 2016 – but only if the football powerhouse can’t get the NCAA to ban those camps altogether.
Commissioner Mike Slive announced the move at the SEC spring meetings, saying the league will "make every effort to have our rule adopted nationally."
If not, then Slive says "our folks would be free to fan out all over the country and have at it." That’s a possible outcome considering the SEC and the Atlantic Coast Conference are the only leagues that ban coaches from holding camps more than 50 miles from campus.
