ANN ARBOR – Jim Harbaugh’s “Summer Swarm” tour last year took Michigan to 10 satellite camps in seven states over an eight-day period.
It cost the university $211,948 and also infuriated the SEC and led to the NCAA Division I Council banning satellite camps on April 8 before the Board of Directors rescinded the ban 20 days later. Now that the camps are back on, Harbaugh and Michigan are going bigger and bolder, which is hardly a surprise.
Michigan’s 2016 summer slate of satellite camps is coming together at a furious pace after the schedule had to be reworked because of the temporary ban. As of May 4, the Wolverines were slated to take part in 13 satellite camps across 11 states in June, in addition to their own camps in Ann Arbor. Michigan will visit high school and college campuses in Georgia, Florida, Connecticut, Virginia, Alabama, Mississippi, Ohio, Texas, Kansas, Missouri and California.
